Also speaking on the initiative, Yomi Sule, CarePay Nigeria’s managing director described the model as one which allows financial service enterprises to embed healthcare benefits such as discounts, cashbacks, and telehealth into their value proposition in order to drive affordability ofcare services for their customers.

According to him, CarePay’s healthcare discount programme, has a preferred provider network that includes leading healthcare providers such as MedPlus Pharmacy, Synlab, Outreach Hospital Group, Smile360 Dental, Lily Hospital Group, Exclusive Dental, Amara Medicare, Shield specialist hospitals, Pure Snow Dental, Bethel Dental, and Optilens eye clinic, among others which subscribers can access discounts negotiated by CarePay.

“With only 10 million Nigerians, which is less than 5 percent of the population currently covered by health insurance, this creates a great concern. By partnering with Carepay, Carbon Finance will offer cashback in form of healthcare discounts to their debit card customers. Healthcare should be affordable, and with a Carbon debit card, customers stand to enjoy up to 25 percent cashback at designated healthcare providers enlisted in the CarePay healthcare discount programme,” Sule said.
