The Christian Health Association of Ghana (CHAG) in the Brong Ahafo Region has rescinded its decision to stop treating holders of the National Health Insurance cards.
The Mission hospitals began to withdraw services to patients who are NHIS card holders on July 2 2014.
The directive was as a result of the non-payment of claims to CHAG facilities by the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA).
However, the association in the region says despite the inability of government to settle claims owed it; they have taken this new stance because of the exclusive services they provide to patients and the constant pleas from the government.
Citi News checks at all the 19 CHAG health centres in the region confirmed they were accepting NHIS cards.
In an interview with the Regional Manager of the NHIS, Foster Agyei Korang, he noted that although the hospitals have not been paid, it is commendable, their decision to start attending to NHIS card holders.
He said: “We will be paid very soon the claims of March as the scheme and the service providers work on the claims of April and May.
Mr. Korang revealed the claims from January and February has been settled.
