Globacom Nigeria in collaboration with NHIS- National Health Insurance Scheme and Salt & Einstein has put together the GLO HEALTH COVER to provide FREE medical consultation and medication for Glo subscribers in over 8000 hospitals nationwide.
This could also be referred to as a flexible health insurance scheme for everyone regardless of class or status.
HOW THE GLO HEALTH COVER WORKS
The Glo Health cover provides coverage against the risk of incurring medical expenses from basic, in-patient and out-patient care as well as minor surgeries. Registered customers just need to walk into any partner hospital and provide his/ her phone number for processing and confirmation after which treatment or consultation begins without any hassles.

Over the years, telecommunication providers in Nigeria have been trying to show more support to their subscribers by providing various value added packages to cater for their other needs, this is evident from the introduction of life and hospital insurance by Airtel and the Y’ello Life insurance by MTN. This time around, Glo has decided to join the league but in a different dimension which is focused on Health. What’s your own opinion about this? Share your views in the comment section below.
