Improving the Quality of Life through the Health Maintenance Insurance Scheme @ SOL

Health is wealth, so the saying goes. Health is the real wealth and not silver and gold. Therefore, several organizations have devised a means of assisting their staff to maintain optimum health functioning by making provisions for access to health facilities when ill. The focus is majorly on staff wellbeing which is believed to enhance high productivity.

Health Management Organizations (HMO) are establishments that provide health insurance at a set cost, usually at a reduced cost to individuals across organizations and various works of life. A Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) is a system or initiative that makes available health insurance coverage for a monthly or annual fee. The idea is to foster easy, and quick access to quality health care. Health care is mandatory as it deals with life and survival. There are four broad categories of health care, they include;

  1. Health promotion.
  2. Disease prevention.
  3. Diagnosis and treatment.
  4. Rehabilitation

Therefore, the goals of a well institutionalized HMO include health promotion, disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment, and rehabilitation. 

HMO subscribers pay a monthly or annual premium to have access to medical services in the organization’s network of medical service providers, however, subscribers are limited to receiving their care and services from medical practitioners within the HMO network. 

The Health Management Scheme comes in varying bundles or plans. These plans usually include basic, silver, gold and diamond, etc. There are always variations as regards services offered by each of these plans. Also, the financial commitment differs. HMO plans engage the participants to receive medical care services from an assigned provider known as the primary care physician (PCP). However, they all provide quality health services within the capacity of financial commitment.
