NHIF makes drastic changes to its scheme

This is final.

In a statement to the press, NHIF Chief Executive Officer Mr Geoffrey Mwangi said that the scheme has also lifted the partial payment by patients, fondly ‘co-paying’ in a bid to ease access to medical services.

“Members shall be informed upon visiting the facility the arrangement for healthcare delivery as engaged by NHIF,” Mr Mwangi said in a statement.

He added: “In line with these changes, members will no longer co-pay as was the case previously and will continue enjoying the same benefits package.”

The National health cover divulged that Kenyans would not be required to pay any coin, in addition to enjoying treatment from any medical facility approved by the NHIF.
