CS Susan Nakhumicha promises to review NHIF rates to Ksh 300

Health CS Susan Nakhumicha has on Sunday promised to review the current National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) rates from Ksh500 to Ksh300.

Speaking from Bungoma County, the Health CS noted that the government has pumped in Ksh 4.1 million into the Linda Mama initiative so as to cover charges for pregnant mothers before, during and after delivery.

“Soon, two months from now, we are going to reduce NHIF rates from Ksh500 to Ksh300. In the current Financial year (2023/2024), in the Linda Mama programme, we have pumped in Ksh4.1 billion. Linda mama will cater for your clinic visits before you give birth. The programme will also cater for your bills when giving birth and it will also pay for you four clinics after giving birth,” said the CS

Nakhumicha continued by revealing how she has cleaned KEMSA which was in a mess and now things are back to normal.

“When I joined the Ministry of Health, I found a huge mess. I immediately moved in to clean the rot at KEMSA and things are back in good order there. I am also streamlining NHIF and soon the Fund will have a new CEO.” said the CS
