Leadway Assurance launches new health maintenance organization to improve healthcare access

NIGERIA – Leadway Assurance has unveiled Leadway Health Limited, a new health maintenance organization (HMO), offering a range of healthcare services targeted at improving and fostering access to quality health and wellbeing solutions to Nigerians.

Speaking at the unveiling, Chief Executive Officer, Leadway Health, Dr Tokunbo Alli stated that the introduction of Leadway Health would serve as a disruption and an exceptional redefinition of the delivery of reliable and affordable health care to the public.

Leadway Health Limited’s range of solutions will help bridge the gap in providing quality, accessible, and affordable health services to Nigerians.

This being an unnecessary, unsustainable and costly means to accessing quality healthcare services.

Alli further said that Leadway is in partnership with a leading pioneer of one of the most comprehensive West African Third-Party Administration and registered health maintenance organizations under the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

He expressed belief that with this partnership, the new firm with over 1,500 health providers and diverse range of bespoke corporate, retail and international products will be able to extend health insurance penetration to millions of Nigerians and Africa at large.

Leadway Health’s superior product offerings include advanced telemedicine, health enrollee app that allows authorization of care by enrollees, digital health tracking, access to financial and family counseling and geo-location capabilities for hospitals and pharmacy.

The health maintenance organization also offers a benefit program that involves genuine drugs from manufacturers delivered to the home/office for those with chronic ailments, employee assistance program to promote mental health and medical concierge services.

The benefit program also provides for preventive health programs that includes baby wellness programs, access to fitness and nutritional stores, customized health tips, talks and newsletters across all age groups with a unique reward system to encourage and promote general wellness amongst others.

“We therefore enjoin individuals, families, business owners and corporates alike to come on board and experience healthcare delivery tailor- made to suit their specific needs”, Dr Tokunbo Alli stated.
