C4C HOMEOPATHIC Hospital, a leading Homeopathic health service provider in Ghana with seven branches across the country, has partnered the Indian Government to promote homeopathic treatment in Ghana.
As part of the partnership, the hospital has rolled out a comprehensive and reliable Health Insurance Scheme to provide affordable health care to all. The scheme is the first health insurance scheme for homoeopathic care in Ghana.
C4C Health Insurance Policy
The insurance policy, which is a trail blazer in the world of health insurance, has been devised to mitigate the financial health challenges of ordinary Ghanaians.
The C4C Health Insurance scheme is designed specifically as a one stock shop of all medical needs and it comes by making onetime payment, renewable yearly.
The premium involved is within the reach of the ordinary person. Some of the essential medical needs that are covered under the insurance scheme are Free Folder, Free Electronic Laboratory Services, Free Electronic Scanning Services, Free Consultation, Free Physiotherapy and Free Dietary Consultation among others.
Speaking at the launch at its Adentan office in Accra, the Director of C4C Homeopathic Hospital, Dr Micheal Kwadwo Kyeremanteng said the Policy had come at a time when Ghanaians needed a relief from huge hospital bills.
He said huge hospital bills were preventing most people from visiting the hospital, describing it as very discouraging. He assured that the police would not be a nine-day wonder and that it had come to stay.
Bemoaning the huge charges on the homeopathic drugs by the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), Dr Kyeremanteng said “when you come to the FDA, you have someone representing herbal medicine but not alternative medicine, and I see it as a reason why you got the FDA for registration of homeopathic drugs, it cost higher, where herbal and orthodox medicine goes for $100, homeopathic drugs go for $3,600, and I see it as a way of hindering the progress of homeopathic treatment in Ghana.
“Once we get someone to represent the interest of alternative medicine on the food and drugs board, it will go a long way to help. These are areas that I think the government should look at. The Indian government is really making a lot when it comes to this sector and I believe that if the government looks at this area, it will be helpful.”
So far over 2,000 have subscribed onto the scheme. Some beneficiaries of the Policy expressed gratitude to the Director and shared their experiences with guests who were present at the launch.
Present to grace the occasion was the special guest of honour, His Excellency Birender Singh, High Commissioner of India to Ghana, Togo, Burkina Faso and Sierra Leone.
