Kenyans Wake Up To The News That NHIF Now demands 6k From Ever Kenyans Over 18 Years

Every Kenyan above the age of 18 will be forced to part away with close to 6000 Kenya shillings annually in a new bill that is expected to take effect after the national assembly ruling. A complete opposite of what Kenyans were accustomed to.

Earlier on, every household was expected to remit an annual medical insurance fee of 6000 but with the new regulation, every adult in a household will be forced to give 6000 annually. As if that is not enough, those thinking of defaulting are in for a rude shock since the insurance is planning to have them penalized.

This new bill is currently facing stiff opposition with a majority claiming that it is against the law and that it is meant to extort money from Kenyans. Another concern is for the unemployed youths in the country who can hardly raise the said amount. Do you support the new suggestion by the insurance fund? React below.
