The Nkoranza Mutual Health Insurance Scheme (MHIS)

continues to register more than 200 clients daily since it started the Biometric

Membership System (BMS) registration in the area on Friday, July 31.

Mr. Kingsford Opoku Gyamfi, the Nkoranza Manager of the Scheme, told the Ghana News

Agency (GNA) in an interview that the BMS was to ensure data integrity, instant issuance

of identification cards and the prevention of the incidence of the difficulty in locating


Mr. Gyamfi said the System was also to check double registration as each client would

have his or her information on the national database of the Scheme that could be accessed

everywhere nation-wide.

He announced that feverish preparations were being made by the Management of the Scheme

to open a Centre at Busunya in the Nkoranza North District to cater for clients in the

area and also to save them from travelling long distances to Nkoranza for service.

Mr. Gyamfi called on religious leaders, traditional rulers, Assembly and Unit Committee

members and all stakeholders to assist in the education of the general public,

particularly, people in their communities about the essence of the BMS exercise.

He urged clients with less than three months to the expiry period of their

registrations to report for the BMS cards for continuous benefit from the Scheme.

Meanwhile, the Management of the Scheme has provided special entry points for the aged

and the sick to exclude them from joining long queues for comfort and expeditious service

for them.
