Good health remains one of the basic needs of individuals irrespective of status in society. When people have to pay the cost of health services out of their own pockets, it can take a toll on their finances regardless of their socio-economic class.
Despite how crucial a good healthcare system and a healthy society are to a nation, accessing good and quality healthcare services in Nigeria is poor. This can be attributed to the increasing decay and dysfunctionalities in the healthcare sector.
Health insurance is supposed to be a salvaging factor and help improve the healthcare sector, especially access to quality healthcare. However, health insurance penetration in Nigeria is extremely low. This has brought the attention of various stakeholders to the barriers to low insurance uptake and to introduce solutions and interventions that will solve the various issues affecting the sector.
In response to the ever-changing needs and dynamic nature of the customer, Leadway, a credible and top player in the financial non-banking sector birthed an HMO, Leadway Health. The HMO was birthed to redefine the healthcare system in Nigeria leveraging advanced technology and its unique proposition. Leadway Health was introduced into the market to meet the health needs of individuals and organizations across the country.
