The National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) has achieved its target of 100% client registration in the Bono, Bono East and the Ahafo regions for the third quarter of 2019.
Addressing the press on Thursday at Sunyani, the Director of the Authority in the three regions, Joseph Mensah said 1,474,332 clients were registered above the targeted figure of 1,453,810 for the three regions within the period.
He said the scheme has improved tremendously in the three regions, particularly in the payments of the hospital claims since 2017 and urged the general public to discard the misconception that the scheme is collapsing.
Mr Mensah indicated that the NHIA has paid all service providers in the three regions up to February this year and is about to clear all outstanding debts.
“The scheme has come to stay, to help the public in health matters to ensure all clients enjoy quality health delivery in the region and the nation in general,” he said.
Mr Mensah urged the public and the media to visit any nearby office of the NHIA for clarifications of issues and information pertaining to its operations and progress.
He also said necessary measures have being instituted to protect the dignity of the Scheme so as to ensure efficiency in operation and the benefit if the Insurance to the populace.
Mr Mensah entreated the public to accept and patronise the electronic renewal (E-renewal) of registration to save time and money.
