The National Health Insurance Agency NHIA has vowed to tackle late payment of tariffs to Health Care Facilities HCFs due to them from Health Maintenance Organisations HMOs.
The Coordinator of the agency in Nasarawa State, Mary Aliu, made this known on the sidelines of a one-day stakeholders forum held in Karu Local Government Area of the state.
NHIA and HMOs are expected to pay HCFs tariffs monthly to provide healthcare services to enrolees.
During the Question and Answer segment of the forum, some of the representatives of the HCFs or healthcare providers decried the late or non-payment of tariffs owed them by HMOs.
Reacting to that development, Aliu said the late payment of tariffs to HCFs was becoming a concern for the NHIA.
According to her, this is why the agency resolved to find a lasting solution to the situation to enable HCFs get their payments on time for prompt service provision to enrollees.
