The company received the coveted award for its service quality, competitiveness and innovation in the health insurance sub-sector.

Also, Madam Valentina Mintah, Founder, West Blue Consulting; Goil Company, Quick Angels Ltd, Kab-Fam Ghana Ltd,were singled out for excellence and commendation.
Describing the award as “humbling and thoroughly exciting,” the CEO of Premier Health Insurance Company, Percy Asare Ansah, in an interview, said it was “a testimony of the quality service Premier Health Insurance Company has been rendering to its clients.
“For years, we have invested time and resources in providing quality but affordable services to our clients, and we are happy our efforts have been recognised once again,” he further noted.
He was, however, quick to add that the award would only spur them on to deliver quality services to clients across the country.
Mr Ansah also noted that: “The health insurance sector is still a virgin market begging for the most innovative products, and I trust that our Apomuden plan and other products remain crucial for the individual and corporate health needs of potential clients.”
Organised by the Entrepreneur Foundation of Ghana (EFG), a not-for-profit organisation, MIGA is to honour outstanding personalities in business and businesses with a proven track record of quality, efficiency, and reliability.
