Relief For Kenyans Who Stopped Paying For Their NHIF Covers as Amnesty is Announced

Are you a member of the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF)? When did you submit your last payment for your cover?

NHIF is a very crucial medical cover that most Kenyans rely on when it comes to their medical bills and health care.

However, only a handful of Kenyans benefit from NHIF, that is, those who pay their monthly or yearly contributions without fail.

While civil servants and formally employed Kenyans pay a statutory fee of different amounts, self-employed Kenyans part with Sh500 as a monthly fee for their cover.

It has now emerged that some people are no longer submitting the said figure as required, with some taking more than a year without making any payment.

Good news for Kenyan

NHIF has announced an amnesty for self-employed Kenyans who have not contributed to the cover for more than 12 months.

They are being asked to pay a total of Sh1500 to start enjoying the super cover again.

However, they will have to wait for two months after making the payment to start enjoying the cover.

"Are you self-employed and you have not contributed for more than 12 months? You can take advantage of our amnesty to reactivate your NHIF card by paying KES 1,500 via M-PESA pay bill 200222. Once you pay, your card will start working after 2 months (60 days)," NHIF posted.
