Sustain NHIS Special Registration|11/11/2019

Newly Registered Members of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) have clamored for continuance of the ongoing Special Registration exercise. According to them, most civil servants are willing to register but their busy schedules and the location of NHIS district offices often discourage them. They include Ministers, Chief Directors and staff of the various Ministries, Departments and agencies who took advantage of the NHIS Special Registration exercise and registered onto the Scheme as part of activities marking the Civil Service Weeklong celebration. 

They also welcomed the NHIS Mobile Renewal Service and urged all Civil Servants to join the Scheme’s membership. Most of them in an interview lauded the Special Registration exercise, hence calls for its continuance. Notably, the Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Hon. Cynthia Mamle Morrison after registration posited that,

“Being a member of the NHIS is a civic responsibility for which reason all Ghanaian residents should endeavor to register onto the Scheme.”As a strategic partner in the Civil Service Weeklong celebrations, NHIS staff were at vantage points within the Ministries enclave registering and educating the general public on the relevance of the NHIS Mobile Renewal Service. A team from the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) led by a Deputy Director Marketing, Mr. Oswald Essuah-Mensah monitored and supervised the weeklong Special Registration exercise.  “Bringing NHIS registration to the doorstep of Civil Servants provides a great opportunity to relieve the pressure on the workers who would have had trek long distances.

 

NHIS is focused on achieving Universal Health Coverage hence we encourage everyone within this enclave to take advantage of this special exercise to get enrolled onto the Scheme” he remarked.   Likewise, a considerable number of Chief Executive Officers (CEO’s) and Board Chairpersons of state owned institutions have also recently registered onto the Scheme. This took place at the Annual Retreat for CEOs and Board Chairpersons of State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) held at Mankessim in the Central Region. 

 

The NHIA Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Lydia Baaba Dsane-Selby and her Deputies as well as the Authority’s Board Chair, Prof. Yaw Adu-Gyamfi were present. Equally, management and staff of 21 media houses in the Greater Accra Region have so far been covered. The ongoing Special Registration exercise is part of the NHIA’s ambitious agenda to boost its membership drive.
