Cape Coast South MP registers 700 under NHIS

Some seven hundred people in the Cape Coast South Constituency in the central region have been registered under the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHLS) by the Member of Parliament Kweku Ricketts – Hagan.

The intervention which cost over GHs10, 000 benefited especially the elderly, young and other poor in the society.

According  to the MP, he realized most of the people fail to attend health facilities when they have health problem, instead  resort to using other methods due to lack of money and also because they  do not have the NHIS  card to access free medical care.

It is in light of these challenges that he deemed it appropriate to make health accessibility easier for them with the provision of NHIS card since giving them money would not make the needed impact on them.

In a related development, Mr. Ricketts – Hagan has also initiated free dental care for the people. He noted that the health of the people needed to be given the right attention in order to keep the working population strong enough for development.
