“The theme of our inaugural Providers Conference, ‘A New Kind of Partnership, It’s About You!’ reflects our unwavering commitment to the healthcare providers and our customers.

According to the country’s National Health Insurance Scheme, more than 190 million Nigerians are still paying out-of-pocket to access medical services, forcing individuals, businesses, and households to incur enormous and usually unplanned health expenditures. Leadway Health Limited, a subsidiary of Leadway Holdings and sister company to Leadway Assurancen associate company of Leadway Assurance, was launched as an innovative health maintenance solution to provide a new dimension to conventional health insurance. Its affordable, flexible, and technology-driven services are designed to address Nigerians’ health insurance needs.

The management of Leadway Health Limited stressed that their foray into the Nigerian HMO space would help bridge the gap in providing quality, accessible, and affordable health services to Nigerians. They insist that the organisation is confident that Nigeria can have a healthcare system that genuinely cares for the citizens’ health, financial wellbeing and more.
