NHIA denies blowing 10 million Ghana Cedis on prescription forms


Authorities at the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), have taken a swipe at persons peddling falsehood in sections of the media that the Authority has inappropriately paid an amount of 10 million Ghana Cedis for the supply of hospital prescription forms.  

An Accra based newspaper, Daybreak, in its Tuesday 11th September 2012 edition, alleged that the Authority had entered into a contract with Volta Impex Limited for the supply of hospital prescription forms but paid full contractual amount of 10 Million Ghana Cedis when the entire dictates of the contract had not been executed by the company.

However, speaking to Gold news, Communications Manager for the NHIA, Nii Anang Adjetey, described the publication as false and inaccurate.

He urged media practitioners to do cross checks on stories they present to the public to add credibility to their stories.

Nii Anang Adjetey further stressed that it is regrettable that the issue of new prescription forms as adopted and procured by the Ministry of health to address inherent leakages and abuse in the system has become a subject of attack via the media.

He says the Authority suspects that the publication is politically motivated; hence it should be treated with contempt.
