THT holds providers’ forum, assures of timely payment of claims

A health maintenance organisation (HMO), Total Health Trust Limited (THT), has assured its healthcare providers that it will continue to prioritise the timely processing and payment of claims while urging the providers to continue practicing evidence-based medicine.

The company disclosed this at its annual Providers’ Forum with this year’s edition focusing on sustaining the gains of health insurance in Nigeria.

The Forum, held in Lagos last week, challenged the over 400 delegates made up of medical directors, hospital administrators and HMO officers of over 180 healthcare providers to recognise and celebrate the successes and gains of health insurance in Nigeria over the last two decades.

The Forum inspired healthcare providers to continue playing their respective roles in moving the industry to the next level, while providing a platform to exchange views on addressing issues of concern.

Speakers at the Forum were Nick Zaranyika, CEO, THT; Gideon Anumba, head, Provider Management, THT; Adeola Majiyagbe, general manager, Medical Services, THT; Kunle Megbuwawon, group head, commercial and strategy, Mecure Healthcare Limited, and Kunle Adeyemi, CEO, Crystal Specialist Hospital, who delivered the keynote speech titled, ‘Staying Lean… from Surviving to Thriving’.

Zaranyika, who delivered the welcome address, said the company’s major investment in information technology was expected to enhance operational efficiency and client interaction significantly.

“We are excited about where our business is at the moment. As you would know we received the HMO of the Year Award for 2019, the 3rd time in 4 years we have received this prestigious honour of which we are immensely proud,” Zaranyika said.
