Confusion at NHIS registration in Cape Coast

Cape Coast, Feb 28, GNA - Confusion broke out on Thursday at the launch of the GH¢10.000 National Health Insurance Scheme premium at the Cape Coast Methodist, conference hall, when the Member of Parliament for Cape Coast constituency, Ms. Christine Churcher called for the free registration of vulnerable people.

The people who attended the launch, started heckling each other just to form a queue for the registration and there was no consideration for neither the aged nor nursing mothers who wanted to register. Information of the free registration went out so fasts that within a short period, the room was filled with people who were not originally at the launch.

Insults were pouring in from all direction, but for the intervention of the manager of the Oguaa Mansin Health Insurance, Mr. Osei Reindorf, there would have been exchanges of blows. The registration had to be stopped for almost two hours to ensure sanity.
