Nairobi - Another mega scandal is looming as reports emerge that the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) has under their newly established health scheme accredited non-existent and non-functional health facilities to offer services to civil servants, Capital News reports.
According to the Kenya Medical Practitioners Pharmacists and Dentists Union (KMPDU), the outpatient health facilities in question do not have a countrywide reach as they claim.
In a statement, NHIF says each accredited facility is receiving KES. 2,850 for every principal member per year for outpatient care. This is then multiplied by five dependants which translates to KES. 14,250 per year for a principal member and dependants.
