9mobile, PlugInsure partner on affordable healthcare coverage

9mobile, Nigeria’s telecommunications company, in partnership with PlugInsure and Axa Mansard has introduced an innovative health insurance product tagged, SureCare, for Nigerians.

The collaboration is aimed at providing easily accessible, affordable, and comprehensive insurance solutions to customers.

“This strategic partnership is another example of 9mobile’s commitment to innovative and customer-centric solutions, establishing the company as a pioneer in offering lifestyle-enhancing services.

“We are here to make the lives of our customers better by providing them with access to quality, yet affordable health insurance plans,” Kenechukwu Okonkwo, director, products innovation and business development, 9mobile, said.

According to Okonkwo, the launch of SureCare is in response to research by Enhancing Financial Innovation and Access (EFIna), which highlighted a concerning reality that Nigeria’s insurance penetration remains stagnant at a mere two percent.

The research underscored accessibility and awareness as significant impediments hindering the widespread adoption of insurance products among customers, signalling an urgent need for innovative interventions.

Okonkwo added that the research was very instructive and necessitated the partnership with PlugInsure and Axa Mansard to introduce a pocket-friendly health insurance service that guarantees health coverage to its customers.

“The health insurance service is accessible via the short code *1019#, and guarantees unparalleled benefits, particularly through a range of insurance plans tailored to the needs of our customers.

“This collaboration with PlugInsure and Axa Mansard emphasizes affordability, ease of access, and extensive coverage, directly catering to the diverse healthcare needs of 9mobile’s customer base nationwide,” Okonkwo stated.

Accordingly, the collaboration reflects the Telco’s dedication to not only offering exceptional telecommunication services but also providing essential and life-enhancing benefits to its subscribers.

Under the partnership, SureCare will offer pocket-friendly health insurance that guarantees customers health coverage from N100 monthly.
