Health service providers to receive claims from NHIA by end of week

The National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) has promised to pay claims of its clients by Friday January 15, 2016.

The Authority suspended claims payment after BNI investigations begun into the conduct of NHIA former Chief Executive Sylvester Mensah and other officials on suspicion of fraudulent claims payment.

The suspension of the payments sparked agitation by the Health Insurance Service Providers Association of Ghana (HISPAG) which says its members are in distress.

NHIA Communications Manager for the Greater Accra Region Selorm Adornoo told Joy News plans are already underway to pay the claims.

“What will happen this time round is that the claims we make will be to facilities which are in good standing, I mean service providers who have active valid credentials or accreditation status with the NHIA or those whose applications have already been submitted for renewal,” Mr Adornoo said.

According to the NHIA Communications Manager, service providers whose accreditation have expired will not receive claims payment.

“We just want to ensure that our systems are a bit more stringent now. We just want to ensure that our service providers take a bit seriously the systems we have established as NHIA,” he said.
