Hi,
Am looking for a good medical insurance for an aged individual. Someone close to me is approaching retirement and am planning on having him medically insured. Any one you can recommend?

It starts to get a little more expensive after 50. Insurance companies rarely used to insure guys past 65 but they are nowadays. AAR still does although they are a little more expensive than most other insurance companies. My folks still use them so I know its possible.

premium ni how much? In the short run, it might seem expensive but not in the long run

I have only used NHIF card when admitted in hospital. Im told civil servants can use it over the counter at public health institutions instead of giving cash. i dont know how true this is

Because NHIF only offers inpatient, not outpatient, cover to the general population. Civil servants however get both inpatient and outpatient cover.

There was this scheme that was rolled out by Safcom and I think Britam. You may wanna check it out: http://lindajamii.co.ke/about/

Asanti sana Luther. Looks good but I've realized one catch in the panel of hospitals. Hospitals like KNH, Aga Khan, Mater, MP Shah are not in the list
