The National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) is a government-sponsored medical insurance scheme that provides coverage to individuals who are 18 years or older and have a monthly income of more than Kshs. 1000.

NHIF registration is mandatory for those working in the formal sector. It’s important to know how to check your NHIF status online to ensure uninterrupted access to healthcare benefits.

As a policyholder, it’s crucial to stay informed about your NHIF status. Late payments can result in penalties, but don’t worry! If your membership is deactivated due to late payments, you can reactivate it by paying the arrears along with the applicable penalties. Additionally, there may be an NHIF card reactivation fee.

To keep track of your monthly NHIF contributions and check your balance, arrears, and penalties, there are several options available. You can visit the nearest Huduma Centres or NHIF branches, or you can check your status via email, SMS, on the NHIF website, or through the NHIF App.
