NHIA pays over ¢91m to 4,292 health facilities

The National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) says it has paid over ¢91 million to some 4,292 health service providers who submitted their claim vouchers in time.

In a statement, the Authority said, 2,993 public health facilities, 1,038 private health facilities, 228 Mission health facilities and 33 Quasi-Government health facilities have been paid so far.

“Public health facilities received GH₵49, 845,207.91 representing 69.7% of the payments while the private service providers have been paid GH₵26,033,139.75 pegged at 28.3%.

“Mission health facilities (CHAG) have received GH₵15,173,008.28 representing 16.5% and Quasi-Government service providers have been paid GH₵846,565.84 pegged at 0.9%” the press listed.

This follows revelations of the Catholic Standard about a week ago, that NHIA owes mission hospitals GH¢87 million.
