… As LASHMA partners LASRRA to simplify enrolment for ILERA EKOThe Lagos State Health Management Agency on Monday announced a major collaboration with the Lagos State Residents Registration Agency to streamline the enrolment process for residents as part of efforts to achieve Universal Health Coverage through its health insurance scheme, ILERA EKO.

Speaking, the Permanent Secretary of LASHMA, Dr. Emmanuella Zamba, who noted “Leaving No One Behind”, explained that the partnership was a significant step forward for ILERA EKO with over 1 million residents already enrolled.“Previously, enrolment required visiting LASHMA offices or kiosks. Now, residents who register with LASRRA will be automatically signed up for ILERA EKO if they haven’t already.

Zamba encouraged Lagosians to take advantage of ILERA EKO to prioritise their health, adding that, the programme was a testament to the Lagos State government’s dedication to the well-being of its citizens. “Increasing the capitation is a conversation that we started with the providers about two months ago, and we’re finalizing that. We will be stepping up what we pay for capitation. And we’ll also be stepping up what we pay for fee-for-service.”

She said LASRRA registration offers two key advantages including effortless access to the Lagos State Health Insurance Scheme that would guarantee access to quality healthcare without financial burden and seamless access to government services
