The Northern Region continues to record the highest numbers of active membership on the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

The Northern Regional Minister, Mr. Shani Alhassan Shaibu has attributed the achievement to the effective collaboration between the Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) and the Regional Secretariat of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA).

“NHIS is part of the RCC comprehensive development plan. We are in constant touch with the NHIA Regional Secretariat and I can tell you that new registrations in the region are high. We encourage residents of the region to enroll onto the NHIS.”

Mr. Shani Alhassan Shaibu made this known at a meeting with a high-powered delegation from the NHIA led by the Chief Executive, Dr. Bernard Okoe-Boye, who is on a working visit to the northern belt.

Dr. Okoe Boye acknowledged that ,”The NHIS active membership usually comes from the Northern Region and the middle belt.”

“Our staff in the region have been enterprising and hard-working. The Tamale Teaching Hospital is a major partner in providing medical services to our people in this part of the country.”

According to the NHIA Boss, President Akufo-Addo’s government has been very supportive to the NHIA.

He reminded Ghanaians both at home and abroad to sign up to the NHIS as the benefits package has been expanded to cover treatment for the four main childhood cancers and other diseases.
