Chief Executive Officer of F. Alpha and Omega Specialist Hospital Mr Francis Fosu has called for a consensus between the government, pharmaceutical companies, and health service providers for a roadmap for the review of the NHIA tariffs, which he said was a great challenge for service providers.

He further added that the unannounced releases of NHIA price list adjustment should have a second look before the state, manufacturing and importers, and the pharmaceutical industry as a whole must convene and develop a pricing roadmap.

In addition, these firms would announce new prices when the NHIA releases its rates, he claimed, adding that this will not benefit the country.

He disclosed that with the addition of F. Alpha and Omega Hospital, his organization now has six locations across the nation; the other three are in Kumasi and the other two are in the Oti Region.

Mr Francis Fosu made these appeals during the opening of F. Alpha and Omega Specialist Hospital on Friday, April 12, 2024.

Mr. Owusu Ansah, the NHIA’s Deputy Director for Claims, stated that his team was diligently seeking a new tariff to bring relief to both patients and service providers.

He continued by saying that the NHIA was working on three projects: regenerative health, the establishment of wellness centres in medical facilities, and the tariff revision that was presently being discussed.

He further disclosed that, the newly appointed CEO of the NHIA, Dr. Da Costa Aboagye is interested in and focused on regenerative health and the development of wellness centres.

He wants to focus on preventive health. If preventive health is properly approached, we can identify diseases early and find treatments for them as soon as possible to avoid them becoming chronic, which would require additional funding from the NHIA, and this will lessen the burden on the NHIA” he said The new tariff is being worked on right now to support the facilities by bringing new rates to the market. If it doesn’t, hospitals will still be collecting money from patients when they visit them today.
