my HMO(PRECIOUS HEALTH CARE )has failed to communicate with us and to even give us good services.they have made their phone number confidential to us so we can not communicate with them to lodge complaints. presently, I’m in CMC in ido,AdoEkiti hospital to undergo surgery but no adequate facilities to do that, I can not access my HMO to refer me to another hospital that has facilities. this is my predicament now

Hello Osadola, sorry about your current plights.. You should consider changing your HMO accordingly if you are not satisfied with their service. No one is bound forever to any HMO. Is your health plan under a corporate umbrella? If this is the case kindly consider reaching out to your company HR for advise on the way forward.

Hello Osadola Ifedapo, your experience is quite uncalled for as an HMO is suppose to always prepare ahead and set ground for enrollees to have easy and flexible access to standard healthcare at all times. I also hope my communication is not quite late, I
