The National Hospital Insurance Fund has been rumoured to be conducting registration in counties without the county government green light. The chairman of Council of Governors, Wycliffe Oparanya, called out to NHIF to stop the registration saying that lack of transparency might only lead to prejudices.
“Stop the ongoing NHIF registration…failure to consult and the lack of transparency in such processes can only breed mistrust and in the long run, prejudices the Counties,” Oparanya said.
The county government was supposed to work together with the NHIF on a project dubbed UHC which was among the Big Four Agenda. The UHC is supposed to be undertaken as a joint operation between the national government and NHIF.
“The NHIF reform process has not been finalised and it requires the involvement of both levels of government. The Multi-Agency Taskforce report is yet to be adopted and disseminated,” he said. “This report contains significant recommendations that were proposed by County Governments.”
