About FREE MEDICAL CARE PROGRAMME
The Free Medical Care Programme (FMCP) was established in May, 2000 to provide quality health care to the most vulnerable groups in society. It is a special form of health care financing designed to cushion the effects of the high cost of medical care on the citizenry.
On assumption of office in October 2007, His Excellency Governor Rotimi Amaechi gave the go ahead for continuation of the programme, being aware of the benefits of the programme to the people. At that time it was limited to children 6 years and below; and adults 60 years and above. Governor Amaechi has since then expanded the program to include all ages, all residents, all medical services and in all Rivers State owned hospitals and health centers.
• To reduce the health and economic burden residents by settling the medical bills accrued by beneficiaries in state owned health facilities.
• To Provide adequate and efficient health care services for all by ensuring that the Programme is run according to the stipulated guidelines.
