KMET’s Bima Poa Health Plan

KMET strives to make health services accessible to as many communities as possible. One of its objectives is to improve access to quality healthcare services particularly in the under served areas.

KMET has developed a Community Healthcare Access Plan (CHAP) based on a network of healthcare providers, in Nyanza, Western and Rift Valley Kenya. The provider-based health plan project was designed and piloted from January to December 2013 and rolled-out based on pilot’s lessons learned the following years. Six KMET healthcare providers (4 in Kisumu East and 2 in Siaya) have been selected for the pilot phase of the project.

Bima poa is a product of CHAP, a healthcare plan for you and your family. It covers up to a maximum of 6 household members; these are the household head, spouse and children who are below 18years of age.

The healthcare plan is being implemented by KMET in partnership with Pharm Access Foundation (PAF), Africa Medilink Limited (AML), AAR Holdings Limited (AAR) and Safaricom.
