Naivasha flower farm Oserian Flowers has entered into a partnership with CarePay Ltd to provide an outpatient mobile-based insurance cover for its employees.

The mobile health wallet solution will benefit 4,600 employees and will be run through M-Tiba, a Dutch platform developed by CarePay in partnership with Safaricom #ticker:SCOM and PharmAccess foundation.

Under the scheme, employees and family will receive an M-Tiba wallet on their mobile phones, allowing them to access outpatient care at Oserian health centre.

The medical data collected via M-Tiba is expected to give accurate insights into common ailments resulting in quick interventions.

Oserian management did not disclose the size of the cover when contacted.

“Since we are the entry point for CarePay under M-Tiba in the horticulture industry, we have signed a non-disclosure agreement with them and therefore cannot at this moment release the numbers,” the management said in a statement.
