NHIS to reform enrolment, claims
The newly appointed Deputy Chief Executive (DCE) in charge of Operations, National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Dr Lydia Baaba Dsane-Selby, has expressed confidence that the new administration will revive the scheme.
She said the two most important areas that needed to be reformed were its operations, which are at the centre of the NHIS with their core mandate in the law being membership enrolment and claims management.
She added that the focus was not only about processing the claims, but also credentialing providers and auditing them to remove fraud, reforms which she believes the NHIS has the capacity to implement successfully.
She went on to assure staff during a recent durbar that management would lead the NHIS to advise the Ministry of Health on the reforms that are required.
Dr Dsane-Selby said this was timely as Ghana’s NHIS is touted globally as one of the most innovative and creative social health intervention programmes in the world and needed to continue to be innovative and creative to keep the NHIS as a global leader.
She encouraged everyone to continue to support the new CEO and his team to carry on with this important social intervention programme, believing in the staff’s good work to get the NHIS not only to survive but become the envy of the world again.
