Kenyans who are enjoying the goodness of having the NHIF health cover have suffered a major blow after the association of private hospital hatched a plan to deny them their services. The association has announced that they will not be in a position to offer health services to patients who will be attending their hospitals from January 30, 2022.[Photo Courtesy]
The association has reached to such decision after revealing that what they receive from insurers doesn't correspond with the services that they offer. They argued that the money that the insurers are paying them is very little compared to what is given to public hospitals. They claim that most public facilities receives huge money which can cater for the services offered to patients with NHIF compared to what they have.
However, their decision has left most Kenyans angry as they claim that it will be a blow to them since some of them had registered with private hospital despite receiving poor services. They claim that most private hospital usually treat NHIF patients as if they are treating them for free. Others claim that NHIF deduction should be reduced since most people aren't benefiting from it and it might fall due to bad leadership.
