The Federal Government has commenced the registration of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) for the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

This is in line with the government’s resolve to integrate them into the society.

The acting federal commissioner of the National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced (NCFRMI), Margarette Essie told Leadership that 480 people will be captured in the first phase.

Essie said this during the flag off of the health scheme at the Sabon Kuchingoro area of Federal Capital Territory (FCT),

She said “There are seven components in what we call standard assistance programme for the IDPs which includes supply of food and non-food items; paying a stipend to them to kick-start a new life having equipped them with skills for job; enrolling them in NHIS programme.”

Essie added that the health insurance scheme will provide the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) with the same quality of service as federal government employees.
