KEY POINTS

The NHIF has a website that you can obtain information regarding their services and operations among other things.

All terms and conditions about the NHIF can also be found on their website.


NHIF

National Hospital Insurance Fund or NHIF is a parastatal of the Kenyan government which was established in 1966.

The main aim for setting up this fund was to offer a feasible NHIF payment plan to citizens in the country in a bid to improve health care and to make it more accessible.

In the recent past, mainstream media has been reporting about the various changes and reviews that are taking place within the National Hospital Insurance Fund. As a result, the NHIF Payment options have been stretched out and members have to dig a little deep into their pockets.

Unlike in the past where one was required to walk to their offices to get the account details, checking your contributions has now never been easier.

There are other ways someone can access NHIF details, that is, via email and through the website. Every adult Kenyan citizen is obliged to contribute to this fund. The minimum amount is 500 shillings, and this can rise further for the working class depending on their job groups.

But sometimes you want to know the progress of your contributions. And the option is always visiting the office for the service. This can either wear you out or you will not even have the time spared to go for such inquiries.

With the influence of technology, you can check NHIF status online. Alternatively, you can as well request the statement right from the phone through a text message.
