NHIF Benefits of Health Insurance in Kenya
NHIF Proposed Benefits
In addition to the current benefits, under the proposed out-patient cover, members will enjoy the following benefits:
Contributions & Deductions
Formal sector employees' contributions are deducted and remitted to the Fund by their employers. This is done by Cheque or through E-banking.
For members under the voluntary category, they pay Kshs.160 per month (Kshs.1920 per annum). For those in formal employment, contributions are made as per their income.
Payment of Claims
Claims are submitted by hospitals directly to NHIF after the contributors have been discharged from the hospitals. The claims are examined by the Fund to ensure validity before payment.
A claim can however be rejected and the hospital informed accordingly to incorporate either the missing documents or to address the abnormalities identified.
The Fund strives to pay claims within 14 days upon receipt of the claim from the hospitals. Members who opt to clear the bills with the hospital may launch a general claim directly to NHIF for reimbursement.
NHIF seeks to establish partnership with individuals and/organizations to finance health insurance for indigents including orphans & vulnerable children, poor older persons, persons with disabilities and destitute families. The indigents shall be identified by NHIF or the sponsors.
Enrolled indigents and their dependants shall have access to the current benefit package of inpatient cover in any of the health providers accredited to NHIF countrywide.
