The National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) has refuted claims that the scheme almost collapsed under this administration.

This follows a story published on on the 22nd November 2023, with the tagline, “NHIS almost collapsing, stay off the NHI levy – Dormaahene says as he threatens legal action”.

In a statement by the Corporate Affairs Directorate of NHIA it indicated that the said story was projected that Dormaahene Oseadeyo Agyeman Badu II bemoaned the current situation of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

“We however strongly disapprove of the media narrative that seeks to create an impression of a collapsing NHIS. The NHIA has consistently paid healthcare facilities an average of One Hundred and Fifty Million Ghana Cedis (GHS150 Million) every Thirty (30) days especially over the past two years.

“A phenomenon that has not occurred this frequently since the inception of the Scheme some twenty years ago,” Corporate Affairs Directorate disclosed.
