NHIA: How to register, add dependents, change hospitals, subscribe to GIFSHIP




The National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) formerly known as NHIS, has released its requirements for new registrations, addition of dependents (family members), change of hospital, and GIFSHIP.

The goal of the NHIA is to ensure Nigerians have access to good healthcare services at incredibly subsidised rates. Its insurance package covers consultations, tests, medical consumables and minor surgeries. The GIFSHIP program allows private individuals, families and groups to enjoy the same insurance benefits. It is a good way to save costs and expenses regarding health care.
