fraudThe National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) has interdicted four of its officials in the Northern Region, pending investigations into alleged fraudulent claims paid to Rabito Clinic, a National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) accredited facility in the Bunkpurugu District in the region.

A statement issued by the Corporate Affairs Directorate of the authority named the four suspects as: James Tiyobaat Tiimub, Public Relations Officer (PRO); Paul Mimbiakeeb Laari, acting Claims Officer; Matthew Bumbom Laar, Accountant, all of the Bunkpurugu Yunyoo District Office, and Daniel Pakingmong Sinika, Claims Officer for the West Mamprusi District office.

The statement said the interdiction of the four officials was the result of an exercise conducted by the NHIA on claims payments made to the Rabito Clinic by the Bunkpurugu Yunyoo District office.

The findings, among other things, revealed some irregularities in claims payment to the facility.

“Further investigation into the matter has already commenced and their interdiction is to allow for an uninterrupted process,” the statement explained, and advised the public not to conduct any NHIS-related business with the interdicted persons until further notice.
