NHIS delists 4 Healthcare Facilities (HCF) in Bauchi State


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.
