Healthcare International Limited is a private company incorporated in 1997 to provide quality and affordable health insurance to different strata of the Nigerian population.
The company is owned by some of the leading insurance companies in Nigeria namely: AIICO INSURANCE PLC, COSMIC INSURANCE BROKERS, CUSTODIAN & ALLIED INSURANCE PLC, FEMI JOHNSON & CO., LASACO ASSURANCE PLC, NICON INSURANCE CORPORATION, NIGER INSURANCE PLC and OMIS INVESTMENT LTD.
Healthcare International was conceived out of patriotic concern for the millions of Nigerians who lacked access to affordable health services coupled with the inherent challenges facing both hospitals and companies providing medical services to employees under the platform of retainership arrangement. The objective was to create a system that would address the pathetic circumstance and thus improve the health status of Nigerians in the process.
In 1999, the company commenced full operation and in the same year the NHIS Act was signed into law. When NHIS rolled out its Formal Sector progamme for Federal Government employees, Healthcare International was among the first batch of 8 HMOs accredited to kick off the scheme and has since then grown in leaps and bounds. We now provide services to about 24 government ministries and parastatals with over 400 private companies already enrolled under our different Private Health Insurance Plans. The over 500, 000 enrollees on different plans are being serviced by over 3,000 accredited Healthcare Providers including Clinics, Hospitals, Teaching Hospitals, Diagnostic Centres, Physiotherapy clinics, Dental and Optical Centres.
