The average Nigerian never visits his or her doctor except in an event of serious illness or injury. This is highly attributed to the fact that a large portion of the population is uninsured, so these people typically see a doctor only on critical medical conditions. They see a doctor less than half as often as people with Health Insurance. Some people who are uninsured avoid seeing a doctor even in the event of a serious illness or injury.
On average, babies should visit the doctor nine times per year and children between the ages of 5 and 15 should visit the doctor two times per year.
It is unfortunate that people go without seeing a doctor, because early testing and intervention can lead to better health outcomes. At Ultimate Health HMO, we recommend an annual checkup with your doctor. This form of prevention may reduce the chance that acute illness or a chronic condition will compromise your health and cost you a significant amount of money in health care costs. The goal is to have a long, healthy life, and a trusted relationship with your HMO can make a big difference.
