NHIS to bring healthcare access to Civil Servants doorsteps |7/30/2021

Pursuant to the upcoming Civil Service Week celebration, the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) is poised to offer special services to all Civil and Public Servants who are predominantly SSNIT contributors.

 

The services will include a special registration exercise, how to use the Mobile Renewal Service for membership renewal and raising awareness about the NHIS and Ghana cards linkage.

 

  A team from some selected district offices in the Greater Accra Region will mount a registration booth at the Policy Fair which is scheduled for 11th August, 2021 to perform the special services with the aim to increase membership of the Scheme.

 

Non-registered members should take advantage of the upcoming events and join the Scheme’s active membership to access healthcare from over four thousand facilities credentialed under the Scheme.

 

Ghana has a target to enroll all residents onto the Scheme by the year 2030 to achieve the SDG goal of Universal Health Coverage (UHC).  

 

NHIS/Ghana/SSNIT cards linkage Very soon, only the Ghana Card may be accepted for healthcare services, hence the need to link the NHIS and Ghana cards now. This is to enable a convenient means to allow all holders of one card, that is the Ghana Card to access healthcare.  

 

It is equally important to link the Ghana and SSNIT cards to improve the way of doing business with the Trust.  

 

 A similar exercise was carried out at the last Civil Service Week celebrations in 2019, through which some Ministers, Chief Directors and staff of the various Ministries, Departments and agencies joined the Scheme’s active membership.

 

  As a strategic partner, NHIS staff were at vantage points within the Ministries enclave registering and educating the public on the need to renew their membership annually.

 

Some of them lauded the Mobile Renewal Service initiative against the backdrop that their busy schedules and the location of NHIS district offices often discouraged them from registering onto the Scheme.  

 

Notably, a former Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Hon. Cynthia Mamle Morrison after registration remarked, “Being a member of the NHIS is a civic responsibility for which reason all Ghanaian residents should endeavor to register onto the Scheme.”
