NHIF members will get emergency ambulance evacuation services in a new deal signed between the Red Cross Society and the State insurer.

The ambulances will be available to members who need emergency medical treatment from their homes or in road accidents.

National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) chief executive Geoffrey Mwangi on Wednesday said it would cost Sh490 million every year to provide the service through Red Cross’ subsidiary, Eplus Limited.

Civil servants have been entitled to NHIF evacuations in the past three years.
