Chief Executive Officer of National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), Dr. Bernard Okoe Boye has projected the Ghana card to be the sole document for accessing healthcare in Ghana.
The NHIA boss revealed this during an interaction with a section of the media at his office on Wednesday.
He therefore encouraged citizenry to merge that Ghana card with the NHIA card via the short code *929# in line with the NHIA’s agenda of “One nation, one card for healthcare service.”
The Former Member of Parliament for Ledzokuku in the Greater Accra Region reiterated the Authority’s resolve to ensure the cash and Cary or Copayment is eliminated from the scheme to ensure medical services covered by the service remain free.
Inaugurating a nine-member committee, he tasked them to work to mitigate the impact of copayment on the scheme.
The Committee is led by the NHIA Director of Research, Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation, Dr. Francis Asenso-Boadi.
Other members of the Committee are Titus Sorey, Secretary, Emmanuel Bukari, Daniel Adin-Darko, Albert Kwaku Ampofo, Vida Adutwumwaa Boateng, Raymond Avinu, Baba Saddique Zankawah and William Omane-Adjekum.
