The National Health Insurance Management Authority has challenged the private sector to set up provincial laboratories countrywide to ensure that the public receives affordable and necessary Health Care Services.
Speaking at the accreditation ceremony, NHIMA Director General James Kapesa says the eight private pharmacies and laboratories accredited today will ensure that Zambians regardless of their social status receive quality health care services at an affordable rate.
The Eight accredited pharmacies and Laboratories are CIDRZ, MPM Pharmacy, Phillabs Diagnostic and laboratory, Falls Town Pharmacy, Sylkay Pharmacy, Simper Health Care limited, Jakambo Pharmacy and Tropical Disease Research Centre Laboratory in Ndola.
The accredited Pharmacies will allow NHIMA Members to access medicines and diagnostic services on cashless basis upon producing prescriptions from accredited health institutions.
And the accredited pharmacies and Laboratories have pledged to deliver quality Health Care Services to the Zambian people.
