• Does NHIF Help pay Kidney Disease Bills?

    The answer is YES!

    "NHIF also pays Sh500, 000 for kidney transplant."

    "NHIF should start offering subsidy on post-transplant medications to increase uptake of kidney transplants and ensure long term graft survival."

    The NHIF paid Sh5.9 billion in members' medical bills in the four months to October with more than half of it going into surgeries (including kidney transplants) and another big chunk in dialysis payouts.

    NHIF paid Sh84.2 million for dialysis bills, making it top of the claims list in just four months meaning more Kenyans are suffering from chronic kidney ailments.

    This amount is characterized by a rising number of preauthorisation made for new kidney patients.

    In July, for instance, the fund paid Sh894, 500 for 45 patients seeking dialysis with the number rising to 280 kidney patients in August for the same treatment which cost Sh3.92 million.

    October cost NHIF the highest at Sh79.2 million in claims payout for 2,027 kidney patients who received dialysis. "NHIF payout for a session of dialysis at KNH is Sh9, 500. A patient does at least two dialysis sessions in a week," said Dr Ngigi.
