The National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) has proposed a 1% increase in the National Health Insurance Levy to make it 3.5%.

An additional funding source proposed include a percentage from oil revenues, taxes on commodities such as cigarette, alcohol and sugar and a portion of the communication revenue.

The Upper East Regional Director of the NHIS, Sebastian Alagpulinsa, disclosed this to GBC’s Radio Ghana at the mid-year performance review in the Upper East Region.

Mr Alagpulinsa said the increase will help improve the smooth running of the scheme.
