NHIF Kenya, a state-owned corporation established in 1966 under the Ministry of Health, has been transformed over the years to enhance its efficiency and effectiveness. Its core mission is to offer affordable and accessible medical insurance coverage to all its members and their declared dependents, including spouses and children.

Calculation of NHIF Rates

NHIF rates and benefits are calculated based on gross income. The newly introduced rates stipulate that the minimum contribution is KShs 150 per month for a monthly income of up to KShs 5,999. Conversely, the maximum contribution is KShs 1,700 for a monthly income exceeding KShs 100,000.

In addition to these rates, NHIF Kenya offers ambulance evacuation services to all members. These services cater to members requiring emergency medical treatment at home or following road accidents. There’s no need to rely on bicycles, boda-bodas, or taxis in emergencies. Simply call the Red Cross toll-free helpline – 1199 – available 24/7.
