I’ve fixed NHIS which was ruined by Mahama – Akufo-Addo
President Akufo-Addo says his government has succeeded in fixing the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).
According to him, the NHIS was left in ruins by the erstwhile National Democratic Congress (NDC) government.
The President was speaking at the official opening ceremony of the 100-bed Ga-East District Hospital on Wednesday.
He said his government has not only revived the scheme, but has also cleared a GH¢1.2 billion debt inherited from the erstwhile John Mahama administration.
We have cleared the GH¢1.2 billion arrears we inherited and brought the operations of the NHIS back to life.
“We have also launched the policy of mobile renewal of NHIS membership,” President Akufo-Addo stated.
The construction of the Ga-East hospital was done under the Ghana Hospital Project, which has seen another hospital completed in Wa in the Upper West Region.
