Mobile Renewal and Digital Authentication policy Coming Soon to Ghanaians

While The Governing Council of Nigeria’s National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) said the scheme is near a “tipping point” in the country and may collapse within the next three years if urgent measures are not taken, the Government of Ghana is developing and improving its own health sector by introducing a new NHIS policy.


The new policy is expected in Ghana by the first quarter of 2019.

Ghanians will access remotely via their mobile devices the new National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) policy once it is available.

BizTechAfrica reports that the New NHIS policy tagged 'Mobile Renewal and Digital Authentication policy' is scheduled to be launched by President Nana Akufo Addo in Accra, Ghana.

As soon as the program launches during the first quarter of next year, subscribers will have the opportunity to renew their Health Insurance policy through their mobile phones when it becomes outdated.

Officials of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) believes that the new policy when introduced will provide subscribers with easy and convenient access to the policy and thus help reduce congestion that normally turns to characterize it.

With the existence of the new policy, registered NHIS users will be notified ahead of expiry dates in order to deal with the uncertainties that members may encounter and also prevent the situation where others are denied access to medical care in hospitals due to notification of expiry at the point of claim.

At the comfort of their homes and during their own convenience, customers of the yet to be launched new policy can renew their policy and pay for the service through mobile money.
