The National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) has delisted four Healthcare Facilities (HCF) in Bauchi State over non-adherence to rules and regulations guiding the scheme.
The Bauchi State NHIS Coordinator, Sani Affa in a statement on Thursday in Bauchi, said that the four healthcare facilities were delisted for poor performance.
According to Affa, the facilities were approved to provide primary and secondary healthcare services to NHIS clients but they worked in conflict with the rules guiding Scheme.
“The facilities are: Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Health Centre, Peoples Clinic Ltd, Alwadata Consultants Hospital and Under-5 Health Centre all in Bauchi,”the coordinator stated.
She explained that the action followed the recent assessment of NHIS programmes in healthcare facilities in the country, and warned against the violation of the scheme’s operational guidelines by existing HCF.
Affa stressed that the Scheme would not compromise standard in the ongoing efforts to sanitise the scheme.
The NHIS coordinator however, said the scheme had issued accreditation to additional 53 Healthcare Facilities (HCF) in the state.
