This is done by way of employers submitting to NHIF Kenya a list of their employee’s brief details such as name, national/passport id etc, together with the respective rate each employee should be deducted. All this is done online for faster and efficient service delivery to all.

NHIF Kenya has introduced a far more efficient & faster method of collecting employers monthly payroll byproducts to NHIF via the Byproduct system.

Due to the different types of software applications that employers use to capture their payrolls, we suggest that you use a standardized software application to capture your monthly NHIF byproduct such as Microsoft Excel.

Rather than sending hard copy documents or email of the same to NHIF Kenya, you can just register and upload it once you login. This makes processing faster and reduces the chances of human error.

Payment of Claims by National Hospital Insurance Fund

Claims are submitted by hospitals directly to NHIF Kenya after the contributors have been discharged from the hospitals. The claims are examined by the National Hospital Insurance Fund to ensure validity before payment.

A claim can however be rejected and the hospital informed accordingly to incorporate either the missing documents or to address the abnormalities identified.

The National Hospital Insurance Fund strives to pay claims within 14 days upon receipt of the claim from the hospitals. Members who opt to clear the bills with the hospital may launch a general claim directly to NHIF for reimbursement.
