All Corps Members have been enrolled in the National Health Insurance Scheme, according to the NYSC, to enable a holistic and faster medical intervention (NHIS).

Emeka Mgbemena, the NYSC’s Deputy Director of Press and Public Relations, stated this in a statement on Sunday.

“For the reinforcement of this policy, and towards ensuring a more holistic and quicker medical intervention, all Corps Members have been enrolled under the nation’s National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

“The flag-off of this insurance scheme is slated for Friday, 11th February, 2022.

“NYSC shall never shirk its responsibility of seeing to the welfare of Corps Members. The Corps is always open to enquiries whenever the need arises,” the statement said.

It denied claims that corps members are subjected to substandard healthcare and are responsible for the costs of their treatment.

The statement added:

“The story is not only a sweeping one, but equally a complete misrepresentation of facts.

“It is pertinent to state that the Scheme always feels empty and saddened whenever a Corps Member is lost or maimed. It is for that particular reason that the welfare of Corps Members remains topnotch, and a cardinal policy thrust of the National Youth Service Corps.

“It is apt to put on record that Corps Members get medical refunds for sums expended on health challenges. This scenario usually arises when the Scheme has not been apprised of a Corps Member’s medical issue and he goes ahead to spend out of his pocket. As soon as the Corps Member applies and it’s verified, he gets paid.”
