Salaga District hospital Medical Superintendent commends NHIA|9/14/2020

Medical Superintendent of the East Gonja District (Salaga) hospital in the Savannah Region has applauded the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) for the consistent payments of Claims to credentialed Service Providers, in recent times.According to Dr. Prosper Luri, the recent payments schedule is inspiring healthcare providers to deliver quality and timely services to the Scheme’s members.“The situation has been tremendously inspiring comparing to a few years back. The situation is not as stressful as it used to be and I hope it further improves, so the service providers can continue to provide quality and timely healthcare to the NHIA members.”The elated Dr. Luri was addressing the NHIA’s Northern Regional monitoring team that visited the District Hospital which serves a referral centre in the area.It will be recalled that the Medical Superintendents Group of Ghana (MSG), an umbrella body of all heads of government hospitals at the Regional and District levels as well as CHAG and Quasi- Government facilities in a statement confirmed that government had settled a substantial amount of its indebtedness, one that has been described as ‘unprecedented’ since 2009.The MSG President, Dr. Joseph Tambil at a media briefing in Takoradi after a Council Meeting, emphatically said “Outstanding debt owed by government currently is for just about six months.“This is the best that any government has done since 2009 and we want to urge the NHIA and MOF to keep this up, and also ensure that it is also improved.”
