Bauchi enrols 200 sickle cell patients on health insurance 

The Government has enrolled 200 sickle cell patients in the Bauchi State Health Contributory Management Agency under the scheme’s vulnerable programme component.

The Executive Secretary of the agency, Dr. Mansur Dada, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Bauchi.

He said that the patients were registered at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Teaching Hospital.

”This is to enable them to have access to free medical services being rendered under the federal government’s Basic Health Care Provision, BHCPF programme through the scheme.

”After a meeting with the management of the ATBUTH, beneficiaries are to access primary and secondary healthcare by October 1.

”The government will pay N500.00 for each patient monthly,” he said.

Dada said the agency has so far enrolled 100 people from the informal sector in the state.
