The Chief Executive of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), Dr. Okoe Boye has declared that the Authority is not in competition with industry players in the private health insurance sector.
According to him, the NHIA is focused on promoting and safeguarding licenced private health insurance companies operating in Ghana to push boundaries and be recognised at future awards ceremonies.
The young NHIA Boss was speaking at the Ghana Insurance Awards Night powered by Xodus Communications Limited in Accra, Friday night, August 26, 2022.
He commended Xodus Communications Limited for putting up such an impressive event, which was the fifth edition.
“I am absolutely convinced that in the next 10 to 50 years, companies will beg to be part of this awards ceremony.”
Dr. Okoe Boye told the business conglomerates that the collective goal of the NHIA and private insurers should be the prudent use of taxpayers contributions to provide health care services to all residents in Ghana.
“The NHIA can so far boast of 16.7 million active members. We have an opportunity to register more people into our database.”
“I challenge you, the private health insurers, to work harder in supporting the NHIA’s agenda to attain Universal Health Coverage (UHC) by the year 2030.”
The prestigious award winners included Nationwide Medical Insurance, Cosmopolitan Health Insurance and Apex Health Insurance.
The Ghana Insurance Awards provides a spectacular occasion for insurance industry players to come together to celebrate and network, while rewarding achievement and leadership in various key areas.
The Awards have categories cutting across life and non-life companies, re-insurers, brokerage firms, health insurers, actuarial firms and other insurance service providers.
