Chief Executive Officer of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), Dr Samuel Annor has said his outfit is working to restore integrity in the Health Insurance Scheme.
According to him, they have managed to pay some of their debts to ensure Ghanaians get quality healthcare.
Dr Annor made the comment on Ekosii Sen on Asempa FM, Wednesday.
He indicated that, in as much as the scheme owes service providers, that should not affect the delivery of quality healthcare.
NHIA Boss stressed the importance for the nation to give priority to healthcare delivery in order to save lives noting that, the poor quality of healthcare, has led to the increasing loss of lives in the country.
Dr Annor cited how they have settled over half of the debt owned service provides as part of measures to resuscitate the scheme.
Conceding that the National Health Insurance Scheme has challenges, Dr Annor noted that he cannot by any stretch of the imagination say the scheme has collapsed.
He said they are poised to make the NHIS a reliable health scheme that Ghanaians will be proud of.
Dr Annor called on stakeholders in the health sector and the general public to collectively work to sustain the NHIS and improve the healthcare delivery system in the country.
