About Us

National Hospital Insurance Fund is a State Parastatal that was established in 1966 as a department under the Ministry of Health. The original Act of Parliament that set up this Fund in 1966 has over the years been reviewed to accommodate the changing healthcare needs of the Kenyan population, employment and restructuring in the health sector.

Currently an NHIF Act No 9 of 1998 governs the Fund. The transformation of NHIF from a department of the Ministry of Health to a State of Corporation was aimed at improving effectiveness and efficiency. The Fund’s core mandate is to provide medical insurance cover to all its members and their declared dependants (spouse and children).

The NHIF membership is open to all Kenyans who have attained the age of 18 years. NHIF has 95 fully autonomous branches, satellite offices and a presence in the 47 Huduma Centers across the country. Each of these branches and satellite offices offer comprehensive customer service.
