Goals & Costs
The TCHP initiative will result in increased access to good quality health care, delivered by qualified medical staff in upgraded clinics and hospitals, with sufficient beds and readily available medication.
The cost of the TCHP initiative will be deducted at the end of each month from each participating member’s milk account in order to pay for the coverage. With a low coverage cost starting at Kshs 375 for a 1 person family to a maximum coverage cost of Kshs 1,499 for a family of 7 or more, the THCP initiative ensures that each member of Tanykina Dairy Ltd can access this unique healthcare plan.
The Health Insurance Fund subsidizes part of the premium paid in order to make the plan even more affordable & thus have a wider coverage.
Through the TCHP initiative, health facilities within the Tanykina Dairy Ltd. catchment area have been upgraded to provide quality primary health care.
These new facilities are located at Kaiboi, Kaigat, Chepkemel, Kabiemit and Chepterwai.
The TCHP initiative also provides referrals to two quality referral facilities: The AAR Clinic in Eldoret and The Moi Teaching & Referral Hospital.
The TCHP initiative also covers transport for emergency cases and ensures that no additional costs are incurred by a member of the health scheme.
