NHIF, in partnership with the county government of Murang’a, commenced an exercise to register dependents to be included in the enhanced health cover. Governor Irungu Kang’ata launched the two weeks exercise at Iruri dispensary in Mathioya on Tuesday, 21st February 2023.
NHIF teams assisted by county workers were deployed in different locations and all local public health facilities to conduct Biometric registration.
The cover, dubbed Kang’ata care, targets registering more than 100 000 dependents, including children, orphans, and parents of the principal members.
The programme started operations in January this year and covers 20 000 vulnerable households from the county where registered members are already receiving free medical care from local public and private hospitals.
The Kang’ata care medical scheme includes optical and dental services and compensation for the last expense.
