Just in: The Huge Amount Of Money Kenyans Will Be Fined For Failing To Register As NHIF Members

One of the main agenda of the Jubilee government was the fulfilment of the Universal Health Coverage. This is after president Kenyatta noted how citizens were spending their lifelong savings on medication especially in treating a disease such as cancer.

As a result, UHC piloting was kicked off in a number of countries such as Nyeri and Kisumu, just to see to it that his dream of access to health comes true.

Recently, president Kenyatta launched UHC in Mombasa county where he also commissioned a cancer centre, a facility whose presence will go a long way in saving lives of Kenyans.

The NHIF, which is a key player in Universal Health Coverage, has come up with a number of reforms including changing its name from National Hospital Insurance Fund to National Health Insurance Fund.

NHIF has also proposed strict measures such as mandatory membership to all Kenyans above the age of 18 years.

Those who wil not be registered as members will have committed a mistake and will be liable to a fine of Ksh. 20,000/.
