  1. Saddened as I am by the NHIF scandal, i still strongly believe that we need affordable healthcare for all Kenyans. As things stand now, healthcare is a preserve of the rich and those who are insured by their respective employers. I have seen a hospital bill where doctor’s fee alone was 1.9M-where on earth does an average Kenyan get such money?

  2. It is indisputable that NHIF has gotten it all wrong but it is also a fact that private sector players are also fleecing Kenyans. Some of the bills that come out of private hospitals are mind boggling. As the NHIF saga is hopefully sorted out it would also be prudent for us as a nation to ask ourselves why our private health providers charge so much. Why is it cheaper for one to fly to India for some treatment? Private sector operators are also just as guilty as NHIF- feasting on the misery of Kenyans. Personally, I think Kenyans will only get relief when the existing public hospitals are re-equipped and re-staffed adequately to offer competitive service. Probably only then will private hospitals stop seeing patients as money making machines. 

  3. In retrospect ;  in 2002  FPE was popularly  implemented irrespective of the capacity of our primary schools and the number of teachers; the same happened in 2007 SSE; All this compromised quality and als opened doors for them to ‘eat’ the money(DFID funds);For the NHIF ,the arrogance being displayed by the Nyongo , the Unity of purpose (evidenced by silence even by populists like Raila or those who speak fo the mwananchi like Martha Karua ) , the staight talking Meridian/Clinix Mkorino tells us alot…………look at this Coast GH got 60k which cannot even pay for two nights in the  ICU;

    This NHIF should be stopped ; we need to look into and invest in our County/District Hospitals and the referral hospitals; employ more medical staff ; more equipments, more  and more capacity, then tax the Mwanachi more thro NHIF,

    and if need be ; all Medical health providers should competer with NHIF in providing medical insurance….
