The National Health Insurance Scheme is facing imminent collapse following what workers say is the unexplained reduction in salaries.

The aggrieved workers say they have been agitating for an increase in their salaries and yet for the past two months the meager salaries have rather been shrinking.

Some of the workers who spoke to Luv FM’s Elton John Brobbey said their salaries have either been halved or reduced by a whopping ¢900.00.

Worst still, the workers say management has been silent on the matter with no explanation why the reductions have been made.

At a meeting in the Ashanti Region, Friday, the workers of the NHIS accused management of maladministration and warned the scheme will collapse if nothing is done about their salaries.

One of the leaders of the workers union, John Asiape said they will send a petition to the Labour Commission and allied institutions to protect their rights and to prevent the scheme from total collapse.

“If the workers are not motivated who is supposed to work and get the scheme running?” he quizzed.

He is also asking management to take a second look at the failure by the scheme to cover all ailments. According to him, some of the workers have died because, their ailments are not covered by the scheme, a policy he said was unacceptable.
