We perfectly understand that our Police Retirees have given the best of their years, youth, strength, experience, and lots more to the service of the nation. As their health begin to fail in their twilight years, we are proud to be able to give back to them by ensuring that their health is well taken care of and in no way neglected. We do this by giving our Retirees the opportunity to be enrolled into the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) so that they can access quality medical care.
This is to ensure that no retired Police officer, anywhere in the country, irrespective of rank on retirement, is left out from having full access to all NHIA services and benefits as covered by the coverage plan.
This scheme covers the retiree and the spouse. In a case where the Retiree is deceased, the spouse is still entitled to same and equal medical services as covered under the NHIA.
To register into the Retiree scheme of the NHIA, call us on 09061129318.
At the Police HMO, we believe that everyone deserves access to quality and comprehensive healthcare. That is why we have undertaken the mandate under the GIFSHIP plan, to ensure that your everyday family, individual, groups, etc. can access adequate healthcare as at when needed, at a very affordable rate.

Continuous sensitization and education of NHIA enrollees on the guidelines, workings, rights and the benefits of the scheme is one of our core responsibilities. We pride ourselves as one of the very few HMOs that earnestly undertake this mandate. We do this to ensure that our enrollees are adequately informed with accurate information about the scheme and to know steps to take during health emergency.
Through sensitization, enrollees are reminded of the importance of regular medical check-up, dangers of self-medication and other advantages that are available to them when they visit their hospitals.
We believe that a well-informed enrollee makes better choices as it relates to regular medical check-up, self-medication etc., even if that will mean us paying more bills as a result of increased visits to the hospital by our enrollees.
We prioritize your health over any payment we could ever make.
All we care about is you!
