Stats show that the number of Kenyans having an insurance cover is very low. This has been made worse by the misconceptions about insurance companies in Kenya.
Many Kenyans think having an insurance is a waste of time. Many believe, insurance companies were meant to steal from the gullible and enrich a few.
Stats show that many Kenyans who are on the medical cover are on the National Hospital and Insurance Fund (NHIF) and not because some of them want to but because it is mandatory for most employees to.
The major problem facing the insurance sector in Kenya is inadequate information about the advantages of insurance services such as medical covers. If there is any insurance cover that one should go for is a medical cover. Why?
