The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has launched an HMO plan for its members. This plan is a collaborative effort with Medicard Health Management.
President of the guild, Emeka Rollas took to Instagram to announce the historic milestone. With this new development, ailing actors will no longer have to resort to public begging to raise funds.
The initiative includes a Group Life Insurance Cover which will take effect from the 17th of August. This benefits actors and also, their family members.
“Actors Guild of Nigeria achieved a historic milestone since its existence. We have graciously taken the welfare of our esteemed members high and above measure.” Emeka Rollas wrote announcing the news.
“With your support and the support of the Excos of the AGN, we have successfully signed an MOU with Medicard Health Management as the approved official HMO and Health Management Services Provider of the Actors Guild of Nigeria.
