Edo Health insurance

The Edo State Government has said the Edo State Health Insurance Compliance Certificate/Health Insurance Identity Card is now a prerequisite for business premises registrations, renewal and permits for public and private organisations and for obtaining any form of Government authorisation in the state.

In a statement, Secretary to the State Government, Osarodion Ogie Esq., said “the Government is committed to improving the social and economic wellbeing of Edo people and calls on the general public to collaborate with the government in achieving her vision to engender sustainable growth and development.”

According to Ogie, “The State Government through the State Health Insurance Commission hereby brings to the notice of the general public that Edo State Health Insurance Compliance Certificate/Health Insurance Identity Card is now a mandatory document for obtaining any form of Government authorisation which include business premises registration, renewal and permits for public/private organisations, SMEs, NGOs, etc.

“This certificate is a prerequisite for any individual/business who wishes to carry out any form of government process through any of the Ministries and Government parastatals in Edo State.

“Consequently, all organisations, private and public, including Non-Governmental Organizations that are yet to obtain the State Health Insurance Commission Certificate are hereby advised to visit Edo State Health Insurance Commission, 6th and 8th Floor, Block C, Secretariat Building, Sapele Road, Benin City, for more information.”

The introduction of the Edo health insurance scheme which is one of the administration’s reform moves is, however, bound to attract reactions some of which may be unsavoury just as the government’s order on mandatory COVID-19 vaccination.
