Deal is struck

The East African - - BUSINESS -

The Cen­tral Or­gan­i­sa­tion of Trade Unions (Cotu) and the Na­tional Hos­pi­tal In­surance Fund Board reached an agree­ment last week that will see the in­surer con­tinue of­fer­ing ser­vices as be­fore. This fol­lows a pub­lic outcry over the fund’s de­ci­sion to limit mem­bers’ out­pa­tient vis­its to only four per year. Cotu Sec­re­tary-gen­eral Fran­cis At­woli said the trade union and the in­surer had agreed on a num­ber of is­sues at a meet­ing with NHIF chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Ge­of­frey Mwangi. The Cotu boss also said they would set up a com­mit­tee that would work closely with the top man­age­ment of the fund to mon­i­tor the in­surer’s per­for­mance.
