Many Health Insurance Card bearers in Agona East and West have expressed appreciation to the Management of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), for introducing the online (Mobile) identity card (ID) renewal system.

Speaking to the GNA at separate sanitization rallies on the mobile renewal system at Agona Otabirkrom, Wawase, Yaabem and Mandela market, they said the online NHIS ID card reactivation system had saved them from myriad of challenges they encountered annually when their cards expired.

The challenges they enumerated included, travelling long distances from the interior part to the two administrative NHIS offices, waiting in long queues thereby wasting productive time and lack of funds to sometimes travel to make enquiries. 

According to the clients, on many occasions, some of them had spent days and nights at the District Offices before getting their cards renewed due particularly to the large number of NHIS ID card bearers and fresh people who troop to the offices daily for renewal and fresh registration. 

They maintained the current system had saved them time, money and the stress of accessing the service and called for all implementation bottlenecks to be addressed swiftly. 

Addressing hundreds of people at the various communities, Mr. Isaac Okruw Nelson, the Acting Agona District Manager of the NHIA, stressed that the current online NHIS ID renewal system had paved the way for more prospective NHIS clients to obtain quick and instant registration since its introduction in December last year.  

Mr. Nelson announced that the new procedure had also afforded officials of the Scheme to intensify public education on the policy, especially for people who have not endorsed the NHIA Policy to back their health needs to enable them do so.

Meanwhile, management of the Agona District Scheme has initiated a long-term plan to continuously educate people in the area on the various aspects of the policy, Mr. Nelson further disclosed.Alhaji Adamu Iddrisu Agona Scheme Accountant, Mr. Samuel K. Pantile, Mr. Isaac Forson and Mr. Benjamin K. Bothy, officials of the scheme who took turns to sensitize the people, advised both old and fresh members of the NHIS to maintain trust in the Scheme.
