Our team has been informed that private hospitals are now doing business with expecting mothers.
Any Kenyan man who has a pregnant wife should be very careful what she consumes online and who she follows.
Githeri media and bimbos masquerading as influencers have been dubed and brainwashed by their greed for quick cash and endorsement that have now turned out to be wash wash and pure scam.
Last week, Presenter Ali endorsed Forex conmens that later on scammed him and slapped his fans thousands if not hundreds of thousands.
Last month, Mejja was also called out by his fans after it turned out that he had endorsed (Football Future Finance) frauds that also scammed more than Kes800 million from his fanatics.
Back to this story, Kenyans musicians and cloutchasing folks disguised as content creators have been selling private hospitals located in funny areas in Nairobi and Kiambu county.
“Hizi hosi unaona hawa wamama wa celebrities wanapelekwa kuzaa ni za wakora- These private facilities you’re seeing Kenyan celebraties tapping that they have good maternity services are frauds“
Another Kenyan complained to us.
“Hello Cyprian, I am here just wondeeing what if had not seek second opinion, my son could have been killed. I saw an influencers saying this private hospital in Ruai has good services so I just checked in the issue was homa kadogo running nose and the CO lied to me that my son had congested chest and pneumonia and recommended CPR and rNebulation*sp was it really necessary yet he had no signs of difficult breathing? I thank God coz of my instincts and had to just check out and went to another known facility my son was okey chest was clear. Why misdiagnosed kids yet they are so innocent probably coz you wanted to chop off from insurance?”
If it’s not misdiagnosis, these facilities are inducing expecting mothers before due date to force a C-section which isn’t covered by the National insurance.
“My wife was induced 7 days before her due date in one of the private hospital in Kamakis, they also have a branch in Ruai and Kahawa. She insisted I take her their during her pregnancy period. We were forced to have a C-section and pay in cash. They charged me ks101,000”
Many young couples consuming content being thrown at them without due diligence are now left with torn pockets.
According to Dr Abdi Mohammed, the Chair Kenya Association of Private Hospitals, they cannot accept the heavily reduced rates that the national fund has imposed on them.
According to Dr Abdi most private facilities will be reimbursed only Sh20,000 for a caesarean section.
“This is way below the professional fees recommended by the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Council. For the caesarian section, an obstetrician is supposed to charge Sh96,000 or maximum Sh180,000 then you have charges for the hospital but NHIF wants to pay Sh20,000 for everything,” Dr Abdi said.
While speaking to local media, the NHIF chairman Lewis Nguyai says they held talks with private facilities in January and are still open to more negotiations before new rates take effect.
“There has been to and fro and everybody will use their own negotiating tactics. We always endeavour to ensure that we put 100 percent public participation,” he said.
According to reports from the ministry of health, NHIF has over 10million principal members.
Early this year, then health CS Kagwe said claims by contracted facilities jumped from Sh19.7 billion in the financial year 2015/2016 to Sh54.6 billion in the financial year 2020/2021.
It is a very lucrative business for these hospital you’re seing YouTubers advertising.
We have also been informed that 98 percent of mother’s seeking maternity from these hospitals are forced to deliver via C-section which is not covered by the NHIF.
We shall start serialisation an name calling these facilities that are ripping big from struggling Kenyans trying to seek medical care.
