NHIA initiates instant healthcare for the aged

The National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) has introduced instant healthcare for all persons aged 70 years and above across the country.

This comes as a result of the government’s aim to achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC).

This initiative terminates the one-month waiting period for all National Health Insurance Scheme(NHIS) subscribers aged 70 years and above.

In a statement on Tuesday, 27th September 2022, NHIA stated that from 6 pm on Monday, 26th September 2022, all aged  70 years and above who sign up for the scheme could visit accredited NHIS hospitals, and all their health needs will be taken care of.

Since its inception, the National Health Insurance Scheme came with a compulsory one-month waiting period for all who signed up for the scheme, with reservations and exceptions for only pregnant women and children under five years.

The NHIS was established to provide access to equal quality healthcare for both citizens and non-citizens of the country in 2003 under the government of former President John Agyekum Kuffour,

The government has made steady progress toward its goal of universal health care through innovations to expand thescheme’s operationse while ensuring its financial sustainability.
