Private Healthcare providers to halt their services if govt fails to for the monies due them

The Private Health Facilities Association (PHFA) have issued a strong caution to the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) to pay all members what is due them or they may face their wrath.

This position was made known by the President of the PHFA, Mr. Samuel Okyere Donkor today when he was being called upon by the media. 

According to them, this action has been necesissated on the grounds of no payment for services rendered for over 8 months now since thr beginning of the year. 

He said the PHFA does not manufacture drugs, they do not manufacture their own gloves, and they need to pay their staff. So, if this is how the Authority would be treating its clients, then, it is going to be a big blow on them.

They are of the view that if the monies are not being paid to them as soon as possible, they may be forced to close down or would not be in a good position to treat the mass majority of ill Ghanaians that troop into their facilities for treatment.

The Private Healthcare providers are of the view that they are short of most of thr essential items used to keep their facilities running especially in this COVID-19 era, and as a result, they are calling on the institution to do the needful or else, it would soon see the them churn out some of its customers which in effect would be disasterours for the country.
