The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has inaugurated a 21-member committee to review and upgrade the current standard treatment guidelines of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Health Insurance Scheme (FHIS).
Inaugurating the committee in her office yesterday, the secretary of Health and Human Services Secretariat (HHSS), Barr Amanda Pam noted the need to review the scheme to conform to best global health practices.
Pam charged committee members to come up with guidelines that are in tandem with the current realities and to bring their wealth of experience to bear on the assignment.
She reiterated that the FHIS is a health insurance scheme that seeks to make available health care services to all residence of the territory on contributory basis.
Also speaking, programme director of FHIS, Dr Ahmed Danfulani called on residents of the FCT to key into the renewed health scheme for the benefits of themselves and their families.
Danfulani explained that the aim of the insurance scheme was to take away the possibility of people spending out pockets and have access to a health care provider for treatment without having to pay too much.
He stated that the new scheme would incorporate both the formal and informal sectors, unlike in the past when the scheme was meant for only public servants, especially FCTA staff.
The committee, which has eight weeks to submit its report, has Dr Adeoye Adetiloye, a member of Medical and Dental Consultants Association of Nigeria (AGPMPN) as its chairman.
