This is in fulfillment of its mandate as  a  payer of healthcare services in Ghana for disease conditions as prescribed in the NHIS Benefit Package.

The NHIS Benefit Package covers over 95% of disease conditions that afflict residents of Ghana and is supported with over 550 formulations on the NHIS Medicines list to take care of all the diseases covered under the Scheme.

“Management of the Scheme assures the public of its commitment to ensuring that quality healthcare is delivered to all its members. With this payment, the NHIS is on track and not in arrears as it stays within the accepted 90-day window for the payment of vetted Claims,” the NHIA said in a statement.
