Haitian workers in TCI closer to being treated at home

TCI NHIBProvidenciales, 10 Sept 2015 – Thursday ends a five-day mission to Haiti by a team of health officials from the National Health Insurance Board, which hopes to explore a patient care program with the Haitian government. The program would allow TCI authorities to send Haitian patients to Haiti for care in extreme medical situations.

The trip, which ran from September 6th-10th, saw NHIP officials speak with government health agencies and conduct hospital tours as both countries discuss the best plan going forward.

It is no secret that the healthcare system has been overwhelmed by migrants. If successful, this agreement would eliminate the need to send Haitians to countries like The Bahamas or Jamaica; a process that can be challenging when dealing with clearance for migrant workers whose status is questionable.
