NHIF rates increased from April 2015

The National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) Board gazetted new NHIF contribution rates on 6th February 2015.

The new rates take effect on 1 April 2015 and range from KShs 150 – KShs 1700 depending on the contributor’s monthly gross income.

We advise employers to amend their payroll and deduct NHIF contributions based on the new rates, beginning with the payroll for April 2015.

The deductions should be remitted to NHIF by the 9th of the subsequent month. Failure to do so attracts a penalty of five (5) times the contribution due.
