Bayelsa institutes health insurance policy

Bayelsa State gvernor, Mr. Seriake Dickson, has inaugurated the state’s Health Insurance Policy Development Committee, with a charge to articulate a comprehensive health insurance scheme for its citizens.

Inaugurating the committee in Yenagoa, Dickson urged it to determine the scope of health services to be covered by the scheme as well as terms and conditions for subscription by prospective subscribers.

It will be recalled that N500 million had earlier been earmarked by the state government to kick-start the insurance policy.

The governor, who said that the health insurance scheme was mainly targeted at public servants, noted that the decision was taken in their interest.
