The National Council for Population and Development staff (NCPD) have been sensitized on the comprehensive medical cover by National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF).

Addressing the staff at the Council’s headquarters office at chancery house early on 20th February, the Director General of NCPD Dr. Josephine Kibaru-Mbae termed the scheme as a sufficient cover for the staff owing to the packages provided thereof.

Leading the exercise, Dr. Marie Adera and Mr. Erastus Makali from the NHIF said the scheme was tenable to all NCPD staff and their dependents in all accredited facilities across the country.

The scheme, they revealed, was comprehensive and covered maternity charges, air and road evacuation services, outpatient and inpatient covers besides other benefits. The Toll free number 11990700395395 and 0738395395 could be used by staff to access Red Cross ambulances while air rescue services could be accessed through Mary on 0786412324 or call center 0730702000.

NCPD staff are set to be covered through this scheme effective
