The National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) has paid over GHS300 million to clear outstanding claims from healthcare facilities.

In a statement dated June 11, Dr. Da-Costa Aboagye, Acting Chief Executive of NHIA, said the funds have been disbursed to cover vetted claims from higher-tier facilities up to January 2024.

Payments have also been made to lower-tier facilities within the acceptable three-month claim settlement period, he added.

"This significant release underscores our commitment to ensuring the smooth operation of healthcare services and the sustainability of the National Health Insurance Scheme," Dr. Aboagye said.

The payment covers healthcare facilities across the country that provide services to people enrolled in the NHIS.

Timely settlement of claims, according to many, is crucial to keeping these facilities operational and able to continue treating NHIS members.

Dr. Aboagye thanked healthcare providers for their "cooperation and patience" and assured them of NHIA's "continuous efforts to improve the efficiency and timeliness of claims processing and payments."

"The public can check all payments made to public health providers by visiting the NHIA website," he noted.
