National Health Insurance Scheme


NHIS acknowledges Ghana’s farmers vital role in economic development |12/9/2019

   In acknowledging the enormous contribution of Ghana’s farmers to nation building, the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) on Friday December 6, offered services to the nation's gallant farmers and the general public at this year's National Farmers Day celebration in the Volta Regional capital, Ho.This year’s event was codenamed, “Enhancing Small Scale Agriculture towards Agribusiness Development.”  


The NHIS mounted registration centres at vantage points within the Ho Jubilee Park enclave where the participants had a unique opportunity to register and interact with Officials.      The exercise provided the opportunity for NHIS officials to widely distribute the Scheme's Handbooks and educate the populace on the relevance of the Mobile Renewal Service.


   The NHIS officials further identified key problems associated with the Scheme’s Benefit Packages facilitating the determination of the way forward.     In the end, records proved that the exercise was impressive since more people newly registered while mobile and desktop renewals and replacements were documented.  


The Volta Regional NHIS Operations Manager, Mr. Emmanuel Avinu in an interview observed that the Special Registration was a worthy course, in view of the turnout.A number of mainstream media houses visited the NHIS stands for interviews with senior officers who emphasized the relevance of the Mobile Renewal Service.The ongoing Special Registration exercise forms part of the NHIA’s ambitious agenda to boost its membership drive.



Similarly, hundreds of Civil Servants recently registered to benefit from Scheme during the Civil Servants weeklong celebration in Accra. Ministers, Chief Directors, Staff of the various Ministries, Departments and Agencies, and the general public took part in the NHIS Special Registration exercises. Several NHIS outposts were spotted at the National Theatre, Tema Station, Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Interior, Office of the Head of Civil Service and CLOGSAG mini market near the Works and Housing Ministry.


The newly registered members clamored for continuance of the ongoing Special Registration workout. They disclosed that most civil servants were willing to register but their busy schedules and the location of NHIS district offices often discouraged them. For instance, the Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Hon. Cynthia Mamle Morison after registration posited that, “Being a member of the NHIS is a civic responsibility for which reason all Ghanaian residents should endeavor to register onto the Scheme.” In the end, the data gathered proved the Special Registration exercise to be one of the best ways to increase the NHIS membership.




Correspondingly, a considerable number of Chief Executive Officers (CEO’s) and Board Chairpersons of state owned institutions also took advantage of the Special Registration and joined the Scheme’s active membership. This took place at the Annual Retreat for CEOs and Board Chairpersons of State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) held at Mankessim in the Central Region. The NHIA Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Lydia  Dsane-Selby and her Deputies as well as the Authority’s Board Chair, Prof. Yaw Adu-Gyamfi were present.



Equally, management and staff of 21 media houses in the Greater Accra Region have so far been covered.
