Nairobi - The government is planning to launch a new health scheme dubbed the Indigent Fund that will target nine million Kenyans who live below the poverty line.
In a statement to Capital News, Chacha Marwa, the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) Strategy and Planning Manager said on Tuesday that the government had already rolled out the pilot phase randomly and would slowly expand it to the national level beginning next year.
Chacha said the entire scheme would cost KES 23 billion to be funded by monies drawn from the Exchequer.
