We always wish we didn’t have to deal with health emergencies. We want to be able to foretell the coming of unpleasant circumstances and plan for their arrival before they hit us. But a lot of the time, we can’t. It’s for circumstances like this that Avon HMO exists.
Health Maintenance Organizations- HMOs for short -leverage networks of healthcare facilities and professionals they’ve formed to provide timely medical aid to their clients. These clients subscribe for HMO services on a periodic basis- monthly for example -so they don’t have to make expenses that are unplanned for when health emergencies arise.
Because HMOs like Avon have a wide coverage area, clients could even access treatment and routine checkups from one of several alternative locations at a time, as long as those hospitals or clinics are within the HMOs coverage area. This is one reason why this service provider model has become more popular; its users want to be able to budget for such spending and get their money’s worth of professional healthcare from wherever they are.
For a fairly recently established brand, Avon appears to have made significant inroads into Nigeria’s increasingly diverse health care sector. Its founders spotted a need gap in the industry: individuals, families, and companies wanted to be able to receive treatment and consult doctors at hospitals without being bothered by the cost on the spot. There weren’t many ventures tackling this issue back in 2013 when Avon commenced operations. Today, they remain one of a small number of HMOs in the country.
Avon’s clientele includes individuals, couples, families, small businesses and large corporations. They have service packages designed for each client category, all of which can be viewed in detail on their website. For each category, there are degrees of coverage, each of which fit with their clients’ varying income levels and budgets.
Upon subscription to Avon’s services, customers can expect them to step in to pick up the bills for being attended to at medical facilities, as long as those facilities are part of its network. They also have a list of hospitals and diagnostic centers affiliated with them on their website. These locations are spread across Nigeria, ensuring that clients can have their needs attended to in more districts within the country than not.
Besides covering costs for treatment and check-ups, Avon also takes care of such things as occupational health management, on-site health risk assessment, and employee wellbeing services.
This brand emphasizes disease and hazard prevention and healthy lifestyles in its communication with its subscribers- something it does through the tips it shares with people who use its services. But it goes beyond talking about prevention; it helps out with immunizations and health screenings as well.
If you would like to contact Avon HMO, you can get in touch with them via their dedicated phone lines. They promise 24-hour service on those channels. They can also be reached via email and their social media handles. These details can be found on their website.
