NHIF embarks on special 200/- per person per day package for farmers

THE National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) through its special benefit category for cotton farmers named ‘Ushirika wa Afya’ is expected to start treatment benefits for about 300 cotton farmers at a cost of 200/- per day, equivalent to 76,800/- per year.

This was revealed here recently by Singida NHIF Manager Dr Mohamedi Kilolile, while addressing newsmen in his office.

“I am appealing to all cotton farmers to grab this opportunity by registering themselves to access the benefit because diseases come without notice. The conditions for the service include one must be a farmer, and secondly must be an AMCOS member,” he said.

He said the cost for one farmer was 76,800/- per year, among the cheapest benefits offered by NHIF – 200/- per day.

Kilolile explained that as for now the benefit was already being offered in other areas in which the Fund was collaborating with Tanzania Postal Bank (TPB) to simplify its issuance whereby the bank will meet farmer’s benefit payment which would be paid back after the crop’s harvest.
