The National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) card holders will pay for medicines and services because members of the Christian Health Service Providers Association are withdrawing their services.

In a joint statement issued by the Ghana Health Service, the Christian Health Association of Ghana (CHAG), the Society of Private Medical and Dental Practitioners (SPMDP), and the Ghana Registered Midwives Association (GRMA) said "Due to over seven months indebtedness of the NHIA to all healthcare providers, health institutions are unable to maintain the basic quality of care required of them.

"Health institutions lack the necessary medical and surgical supplies because Pharmaceutical companies have refused to supply medicines and other consumables on credit.

The leaderships of the GHS, CHAG, SPMDP and GRMA feel embarrassed by this development," they said in the statement.

The Executive Director of CHAG, Peter Yeboah in an interview with Joy FM said the action is a "distress call" meant to draw the attention of the National Health Insurance Authority.
