The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has asked service providers under the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) to continue to accept patients with NHIS cards as it is still in the process of finding ways of reimbursing them.

This followed a meeting in Accra yesterday involving the Deputy Minister of Health, Dr Victor Asare Bampoe; the Director General of the GHS, Dr Ebenezer Appiah Denkyira; the chief executives of the various teaching hospitals, the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) and the Society of Private Medical and Dental Practitioners.

“Taking into consideration the challenges facing the NHIS which are being addressed, I wish to direct all medical facilities under the Ghana Health Service to continue to accept the NHIS card for service delivery.

“I wish to use this opportunity to inform all stakeholders that government is taking the necessary steps to address the challenges facing the scheme in the shortest possible time,” a statement signed by Dr Denkyira to all Regional Health Directors said.
