NHIF

The National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) is a governmental initiative aimed at initially helping civil servants have hospital cover. However, now, any Kenyan resident above the age of 18 years is eligible to register and make monthly contributions to the fund.

For the longest time, interested applicants had to find NHIF offices and make queues throughout the day to have their official NHIF membership cards and numbers.

NHIF now has an online portal that makes it easy for members to register and enjoy the benefits of its super covers.

You can register for the NHIF both online and offline through self-registration or by visiting the Huduma center. A Kenyan resident who has attained 18 years and earns more than 1,000 shillings a month and 12,000 shillings per year are eligible for NHIF membership.
