Employers to pay NHIF contributions for staff


• Kenyan employers face additional burden of statutory deductions if Parliament passes a Bill that requires business owners to match workers’ monthly contributions to the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF).

• Doubling the Sh1,700 that top contributors make to the NHIF ranks high on the list of targeted changes to the NHIF Act, which will be introduced to Parliament this morning at a special session.

• The plan is to have the workers continue paying same amounts and employers matching in a structure modelled on the National Social Security Fund (NSSF).
