We do not know what the National Health Insurance Scheme covers anymore: Patients ask health worker

The National Health insurance is a scheme by the government to help all Ghanaians to visit any government clinic or hospital without any charge or any kind.

Most people are being charged even after having an active National Health Card. Some pay huge sums of money for medicines and injections.

This comes after two patients visited one clinic in Kumasi.

After being catered for, they were asked to pay ¢120, and ¢100 respectively. According the medical attendant, all those charges are not part of the National Health Insurance Scheme. This made them question that, what really covers the national health. Because it seems people are being charged anytime they visit the clinic.

This is not the first time, this is happening. Ghanaians plead to get answers on this because it is an insurance on health and not part of health.


Thanks for reading.

Please share your experience on your visit to any hospital or clinic and how much you were charged.
