The NHIF Corruption Scandal

NHIF Corruption Scandal

The NHIF Corruption Scandal struck the nerve of the masses after it was revealed that the National Health Insurance Fund could have lost more than Ksh10 billion in false medical claims. 

Investigators claimed that the figure had been flagged as fraudulent and was part of about Ksh50 billion paid to NHIF by Treasury as capitation premiums for medical cover for civil servants, Kenya Police Service, National Youth Service, and Kenya Prisons Service since 2013

The detectives claimed to have stumbled on a pile of documents related to premiums from special medical schemes worth Ksh12.7 billion annually which was suspected to have been arrived at following collusion between NHIF officials and hospital administrations, whereby they double-charged the government in medical bills.
