Ghana’s first health insurance scheme for homoeopathic care has been launched in Accra.
The scheme, launched by the C4C Homeopathic Hospital, is the set to promote access to alternative healthcare.
The scheme so far has a subscription base of 2,000 subscribers. The 1-year coverage policy covers hospital cards, consultation, lab scan, and physiotherapy.
Speaking to the media after the launch of the scheme, the CEO of the C4C Homeopathic Hospital, Dr. Michael Kyerematen, underscored the importance of alternative medicine in the treatment of ailments.
He decried the high charges imposed by the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) on the registration of homoeopathic drugs, and called the government to appoint practitioners to serve on the FDA board to facilitate the delivery of alternative health care in the country.
