Disappointment to All NHIF Patients As Private Hospitals Plan to Deny Them Services

All National Health Insuarance Fund (NHIF) patients are set for a big dissapointment as they will be denied services by private hospitals starting from Monday, January 27.

This is after the Kenya Association of Private Hospitals (KAPH) released a statement claiming that they received alot of complaints from their health facilities regarding the poor payment of the insurers.

While speaking to Kenyans.co on Thursday, January 27, the Head of Communications for KAPH Joseph Otieno claimed that the payments that are made by the insurers are very little to compared to public facilities.

"Yes, they (NHIF) at times they don't even end up paying. We compiling a number of complaints from our facilities before releasing an official report," stated Otieno.

The decision by KAPH comes just few days after more than eight hundred private hospitals sued the NHIF over the newly introduced biometric registration, where the heads of the hospitals claimed that they were given a very little time to compile with the changes.
