The federal government has commended the Cross River State Government for signing into law, the State Health Insurance Scheme bill christened ‘Ayadecare’.

The Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme, Usman Yusuf disclosed this recently in a meeting with Health Stakeholders in the state where he also lauded the passion and commitment of the state’s Core Implementation Team headed by the Health Commissioner, Dr. Inyang Asibong.

According to Yusuf, the Ayadecare act will make healthcare affordable and called on the Core Implementation Team to engage Cross Riverians more through advocacy visits and sensitization tours to buy into the scheme.

“It will go a long way to reduce the financial burden on everyone as a result of paying for Health services” said Dr Yusuf who added that it will reduce the level of poverty in the state and increase productivity in the state.

Also, he promised to support the State in accessing all the available take off grant and technical support needed to achieve the success and sustainability of the scheme in the state.

Earlier, the Chairman House of Assembly Committee on Health, Honorable Ekpo Ekpo in his remarks pleaded the federal government’s support for the bill which he said the current leadership in the state is very passionate about. He also apologized on behalf of the health commissioner whom he said was on an official engagement elsewhere.

In a related development, The Nigerian Army within the week, carried out a Medical outreach program in Anantigha as part of its itinerary for the Chief of Army Staff visit to the state to brief the state leadership on the “Operation Crocodile Smile”.
