Dear Kenyans ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ช,
The Social Health Insurance Act 2023 is a cause for concern!
Concerns range from an abrupt end to medical cover for millions to substantial contribution hikes. It’s a pivotal moment for healthcare in our nation!
The heart of the issue? Our comprehensive medical cover, a hard-earned right, faces immediate jeopardy.
Here’s a detailed look at the issues:
1๏ธโƒฃ Comprehensive Medical Cover Withdrawal: The law threatens to snatch away the comprehensive medical cover for 3 million+ civil servants and county employees. Contributions skyrocket, but healthcare access plummets. This is a breach of our agreements, and we won’t stand idly by!
2๏ธโƒฃ Informal Sector Struggle: 80% of Kenyans work in the informal sector, yet this law unfairly burdens them with upfront annual contributions. Is it a crime to be jobless? We demand fairness and equal monthly contributions for all. Let’s say NO to this injustice!
3๏ธโƒฃ Primary Health Care Fund: Taxpayer-funded, yet we demand transparency! The Primary Healthcare Fund must be disbursed to counties through the Commission of Revenue Allocation. Let’s prioritize service delivery and healthcare workers in level 1, 2, and 3 facilities!
It’s time for all Kenyans to be vigilant about these unjust policies! The fight for our right to comprehensive healthcare is on.
