NHIF denies reports of Linda Mama program discontinuation, assures public of its continued operation

Let’s set the record straight because there have been some rumors swirling around like a whirlwind on social media. The National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) wants you to know that the Linda Mama program is alive and kicking! So, you can put those false reports to rest and breathe a sigh of relief.

Now, let’s talk about the incredible Linda Mama program. This little gem was launched back in 2017 with a big mission—to reduce maternal and child deaths and provide much-needed financial support to mothers during their journey through pregnancy and childbirth. It’s like a guardian angel for expectant moms, offering them a one-year cover that includes antenatal visits, childbirth, postnatal care, and vaccines for their little bundle of joy.

But wait, there’s more! NHIF wants you to know that they’re not fooling around with these false reports. Over 6 million mothers have benefited from the Linda Mama program since it first burst onto the scene. That’s right—6 million strong and counting! NHIF wants you to rest assured that they’ve got your back, mamas.

Just a few days ago, the newly appointed NHIF Board Chairman, Eng. Michael Kamau, had some wise words for all the wonderful people of Kenya. He called on everyone to make their monthly contributions on time so they can access the healthcare services they need when they need them. It’s like a friendly reminder to keep things running smoothly and ensure that everyone gets the care they deserve.

Now, let’s dig into the juicy details of the Linda Mama program. Expectant mothers under this fantastic initiative get access to skilled birth attendants who will guide them through the beautiful journey of bringing a new life into the world. And guess what? They’ll also receive coverage for those all-important antenatal visits, the magic moment of childbirth (whether it’s a normal delivery or a C-section), postnatal care visits, and even vaccines for their precious little one. It’s a comprehensive package designed to make the journey smoother and lighten the financial load on moms during this special time.

NHIF is all about making healthcare accessible, affordable, sustainable, equitable, and top-notch quality for every single Kenyan. Eng. Kamau, the NHIF Board Chairman, is like the captain of this ship, steering it in the right direction. He knows that having an active health insurance cover is like having a superhero shield against unforeseen health emergencies and existing conditions. And you know what else? He’s got your back, your money, and your health. Now, that’s a chairman who means business!
