MTN Nigeria and a health fintech company, CarePay Nigeria, have signed an agreement to grow health insurance coverage among millions of Nigerians.
The partnership will connect MTN’s subscribers to CarePay’s digital “healthcare marketplace”.
CarePay Nigeria’s Executive Chairman, Amaechi Ndili, yesterday said the partnership would improve Nigeria’s health indices by improving access to affordable quality healthcare for all Nigerians.
“With the convergence of various technologies including mobile telephony, cloud, internet, data and AI, it is inevitable that these convergences will work to the benefit of the entire healthcare ecosystem.
“MTNN’s strong brand and reach combined with CarePay’s proven healthcare technology provides the perfect, trust-based platform that allows seamless transactions between patients, healthcare providers and health insurers,” he said.
