The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, has directed nationwide registration and capturing of all retired police officers for the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).
Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, said this in a statement on Thursday. The directive followed federal government’s approval for the enrollment of retired police officers on the NHIS.
Mba noted that all retired police officers, irrespective of their rank, along with a spouse, will have full access to all NHIS services.
“The retirees will also have access to the benefits covered by the Police Health Maintenance Organization (Police-HMO) Code-073,” he said.
The registration and capturing would be in three batches and conducted at police area commands nationwide.
The ex-officers were advised to visit the command closest to them with their National Identity Number, letter of retirement and retiree’s identity cards.
The registration will be held from September 7 to September 23. North-West, North-East and part of North-Central, Federal Capital Territory and Nasarawa – September 7 to September 9. South-West and part of North-Central, Benue, Kogi, Kwara, Niger and Plateau – September 14 to September 16. South-South and South-East States – September 21 to September 23.
