Description

The National Hospital Insurance Fund has disimssed criticism by workers unions that the new medical scheme was a 'rip off' accusing them of dishonesty. The fund’s CEO Simon Ole Kirgotty says the enhanced rates are only aimed at increasing access and reducing the cost of health care, but extended an olive branch to the unions urging them to consider negotiations on contentious issues instead of resorting to strikes. But there are concerns that NHIF has kept contributors in the dark on the details of the scheme despite commencing deductions in the month of April.
