Private hospitals based in Plateau State have lamented delay in remitting the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) monthly capitation scheme of the federal government policy on health maintenance organisations to the affected private hospitals.
The Chief Medical Director of Sauki Hospital in Jos, Dr. Daniel Gana, raised the alarm while fielding questions from reporters Saturday in Jos.
He explained that the federal government initiated the NHIS in 2006, adding that its intention was the universal health coverage so that all Nigerians would be covered by health insurance.
