NHIA Deputy Chief Executive Operations reinforces MyNHIS App campaigns | 3/27/2024

During her three-day working visit to the Greater Accra, Volta, and Oti Regions, the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), Deputy Chief Executive in charge of Operations, Louisa Atta-Agyemang (Mrs.) reinforced the importance of using the self-enrollment platform known as MyNHIS App for multiple registrations and expired membership renewals.

Anywhere she went, the DCE Operations reminded the NHIS District management teams to intensify campaigns on the MyNHIS App and the Mobile Renewal Service platform as a means to decongest the district offices.

Interacting with some pregnant women at the Jasikan NHIS District Office in the Oti Region, the DCE Operations educated them on the significance of the MyNHIS App and the Mobile Renewal Service platform and urged them to take advantage of the systems in renewing their expired NHIS membership and doing fresh registrations.

This was when she made a follow-up monitoring of the Biometric Membership Authentication System (BMAS) project piloted at some NHIA credentialed healthcare provider sites in the Greater Accra, Volta, and Oti Regions.

She visited the Dangme West Community Complex Medical,. Ayikuma CHPS compound, Tapa Amanya CHPS compound, Jasico College Clinic, I Care Home-Care Services, and Hohoe Adabraka Health Centre where the limited rollout of the Biometric Membership Authentication System has been ongoing.

The visit also afforded her the opportunity to interact with and hear directly from NHIS district management teams and their expectations from Executive Management.
