NHIS is Governmental Scheme but RAII is Non-Governmental Organization Initiative. Certain percentage is deducted from the income of subscribers on NHIS, no percentage is deducted from the income of subscribers on RAII. Over 95% of disease conditions that afflict Nigerians are covered by the NHIS while RAII intervenes on road safety and road traffic accident cases only. This means that the scope of RAII is narrow while the scope of NHIS is very broad. NHIS is a (holistic) national health insurance scheme while RAII is singular intervention helping to prevent road traffic accident (promoting road safety) and assisting road traffic accident victims who are subscribers in Nigeria.

You can register with RAII. One of the benefits of a member is opportunity to request for help (emergency financial relief) when the need arises for urgent payment for emergency treatment of road traffic accident victims in the hospital.
