Organizers Explain Benefits of Entertainment Industry Health Insurance Convention

Health Insurance Convention Artwork-ENCOMIUM(1)

The awareness of health insurance among practitioners of the Nigerian entertainment industry has become imperative. There has never been a well structured health system scheme for the industry. As a result of this, the industry has lost several of its well loved musicians and actors to dreadful sicknesses like renal failure, fatal accidents and other vices while trying to raise funds for their treatment abroad.
The knowledge of health insurance is very poor among practitioners of the entertainment industry and even the society at large. The Nigerian Entertainment Industry Health Insurance Convention is designed as a customized learning and education platform for the practitioners and invariably members of the public at large to understand the importance of health insurance and at the same time embrace it. The convention seeks to illuminate complex issues of health care practice and policy by bringing together leading-edge doers and thinkers – from operations to academia, from clinical practice to corporate management. The convention delineates perspectives of stakeholders throughout the healthcare community in addressing broad issues and the type of health insurance to go for.
Some of the topics to be discussed at the convention are; The health implications of celebrity life styles, benefits of health insurance policies, health insurance policy…at what cost? The health insurance policy…how dependable? And the role of government in health insurance policies.
The convention is presented by Nigerian Entertainment Industry Lecture series and is in partnership with National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Lagos State Ministry of Health and Nigeria Medical Association. It is billed to hold on July 22, 2014, at the Grand Ball Room of Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
