According to FIC, after investigations were concluded, they could not associate Mr. Mensah with any illegality.
The Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) is investigating how some health facilities were certified to become service providers of the NHIA.
This is in connection with BNI’s investigations into allegations of false claims by some 10 medical facilities, with suspicions that the processes were compromised.
Mr. Mensah reported himself to the BNI on January 1 after he was invited for questioning.
The security agency is also investigating how tariffs for providers are calculated, vetted and the components of the membership and financial management.
