The National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) has asked all subscribers of the National health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) to visit private health facilities for medical care in the face of the strike by doctors in the public sector.

A statement signed by the Head of Communications at NHIA, Selorm Adonoo said the “Authority (NHIA) entreats all NHIS card holders who may be turned away from public health facilities to visit any of the NHIS-credentialed private and faith-based hospitals and clinics to access healthcare services.

The statement added “NHIS cards are not only eligible in government establishments but can be used in the over 1,000 NHIS-credentialed private and faith-based healthcare facilities.

“NHIS cardholders may also access healthcare at the 37 Military and Police Hospitals in Accra and the many Health Centres and Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) compounds across the country

“This arrangement is to ensure that subscribers of the NHIS continue to access healthcare services while the Ghana Medical Association (GMA)’s negotiations with government and strike persist”.
