SEAGRAPE, Grand Bahama – National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) heads are in Grand Bahama to meet with stakeholders to discuss changes proposed to the National Health Insurance Programme.

The NHIA held a Town Meeting in Seagrape, Eight Mile Rock, on Monday, November 5, 2018 at which residents were informed of the benefits of National Health Insurance, its costs and functions – and also had the opportunity to register for the plan.

Dr. Robin Roberts, Chairman of the NHIA Board, led the discussion and rather than wait for the question/answer period at the end of his presentation, engaged residents which turned the forum into an open discussion.

Dr. Roberts was accompanied by NHIA Managing Director, Graham Whitmarsh, and also present was Mick Holding, president of the Grand Bahama Chamber of Commerce.  A second Town Meeting will be held on this evening, November 6, at the Church of the Ascension in Freeport.

Meetings will also be held in Abaco, Eleuthera, Exuma, Long Island and New Providence, and following the feedback from residents, the findings will be presented to the Cabinet of The Bahamas.

On Monday morning, November 5, Dr. Roberts explained the steps the Authority is taking at a press briefing and in meetings with Grand Bahama’s business community at the Grand Bahama Chamber of Commerce in Freeport.
