By Peter Amunga

NHIF services for teachers and their loved ones have been suspended. TSC has NOT  [AID THE NHIF DEDUCTIONS DEDUCTED FROM TEACHERS FOR THE LAST FIVE MONTHS. Contacted, TSC lays blame on the National treasury.

NHIF via their website have made it clear that services for teachers under the TSC will not be served due to failure to remit funds.

NHIF mainly carters for Inpatient. It pays for bed and other services like MRI and specialized surgeries.  AON MInet carters for the clinical part that includes pharmacy, treatment, investigations and doctor’s fee.  Any teacher admitted in hospital must notify MINET and NHIF. Without an NHIF card, a teacher cannot access inpatient services.

What this means is that all INPATIENT  teachers or loved ones currently admitted in HOSPITALS CANNOT BE RELEASED UNTIL MONEY IS PAID. It also means is that those teachers or loved ones who want inpatient medication may have to pay for bed and room from their pockets unless TSC pays.

Teachers prepare for hard times.
