Sunyani, Sept. 22, GNA – The government has
provided 46 new data printers to support the National Health Insurance Scheme’s
(NHIS) operations in its 21 offices in the Brong-Ahafo Region.

Sunyani, Techiman South and Dormaa Central
Municipalities received three each while the remaining 18 district offices also
got two each of the printers which are more robust and efficient than the
current ones being used.

Speaking at a short presentation ceremony, Mr
Evans Opoku-Bobie, the Regional Minister designate, expressed appreciation to
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for his visionary leadership and also to
the Management of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) in the region
for their hard work and dedication to the course of the Scheme.

He said the new printers would make the
numerous complaints of “no printers” at the District offices “a thing of the
past” and advised the District Managers and their staff to take very good care
of them.

Mr Opoku-Bobie commended “the good work” of
health providers in the region who were providing quality health care to the
people and announced that the government had paid claims up to December 2017.

“Within few weeks you are also going to
receive claims of first quarter 2018 and we will continue to improve upon the
payment of claims to the facilities”, he said.

Mr Joseph Mensah, the Regional Director of the
NHIA, said the region has been able to register about 800,000 members as at
June this year and expressed the optimism that the arrival of the machines
would greatly improve their performance to achieve the region’s 2018 target of
1,365,336 by the close of the year.

As part of the presentation programme, a day’s
sensitisation workshop was organised by the Regional Office of the Scheme for
the district managers.
