NHIF Paybill Number and NHIF Payment Via Mpesa 2016

With the NHIF Mpesa paybill number, you  can now make your NHIF payment via Mpesa straight from your phone. NHIF which stands for National Hospital Insurance Fund is a national health insurance parastatal that helps Kenyans have access to medical services at an affordable price. While they cover the entire bill in the public hospitals, the insurance covers the bed charges for those admitted in private and mission hospitals.

Though the monthly payments are deducted directly from the payslip by the employer, self employed individuals can make their monthly contributions  though bank deposits or other means that are convenient for them.

NHIF payment through Mpesa is without doubt the easiest option. You can pay from the comfort of your house without having to waste your day queuing. Here's how you use Mpesa to make NHIF payments.
1. Go to Mpesa menu and choose 'Pay Bill' option
2. Key in the NHIF Mpesa paybill number which is 200222
3. Key in your NHIF Account number
4. Key in the amount you wish to contribute
5.Key in your M-Pesa PIN.
6. Check again to ensure that you have input the correct information
7. Wait for a confirmation message

    1. No. You just have to pay for the months that you've not contributed for, as far as I know.

  6. My NHIF card No is 0592780. I am a private contributor. I paid/renewed my contribution for this year on 30/10/15 through Mpesa at 2.14pm and I got an mpesa acknowledgment receipt no. JJU4CVNT7W. I am a Nairobi resident.
    Confirm whether my account was credited. I don't know how to check and I am away. Your toll number is impossible.

  7. Yes. However, contributions for the period you did not contribute must be updated where one wishes to claim NHIF benefits.

    1. You visit any NHIF branch with er details like passport photo and copy ID. She will not get an Id if she's your dependant. She'll be using yours.

      For your lost card, you'll get another one for 200 shillings if you go with your ID.

      For your dependant's contribution, you will not have to pay anything extra. A;ll your dependants will be covered under your name.

      Please note: If you want her to be a member herself, you can register her on her own even though she's your dependant. She';ll get a card of her own and will be making contributions of 500 a month. If she adds you as her dependant as well, the two of you can use either card to access medical care. But registering both spouses is only necessary when both are employed since membership is compulsory for all employed Kenyans.
