The official presentation of the NEIHIS ID card and other relevant care access documents were made to the two ambassadors on Friday, 15th May, 2015.
Speaking during the presentation, the two celebrities applauded the initiative and commended the organizers for their doggedness and sacrifice towards ensuring a well-structured health care scheme for the entertainment industry.
Speaking during his presentation, Sammie Okposo said the industry is finally on the part of honour. “The Era of begging in our industry seems to have come to an end. Health is wealth and we as entertainers have to do what it takes to safeguard our health. I’m proud to be on the NEIHIS scheme and enjoin others in our industry to do the same. The Nigerian Entertainment Industry Health Trust Fund is also there as a benefit for all enrollees”.
NEIHIS is a private customized scheme designed for the entertainment industry and endorsed by the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS). It’s an initiative of the Nigerian Entertainment Industry Lecture Series (NEILS).
