Save Smart For Healthcare. Your Way.

Self Employed Healthcare Plan (Kenya)

Kenya boasts of an ever growing vibrant economy with lots more people opting to be self employed as a means of sustainable livelihood. These group encompasses everyone from photographers, videographers, freelance agency creatives, social media influencers, system developers all the way to uber drivers, boda boda riders and market vendors. This sector despite being the backbone of the nation’s economy lacks access to quality healthcare products as there is no adequate Self Employed Healthcare Plan. Traditional health insurance models, designed for a more formal workforce, often fall short, leaving out a Self Employed Healthcare plan. Many workers in these groups are vulnerable to financial hardship in the face of medical emergencies.

By offering a more flexible and inclusive approach to healthcare financing, healthcare wallets provide an adequate self-employed healthcare plan. It empowers workers to take charge of their well-being without the constraints of traditional insurance. Below are ways where traditional insurance falls short;

  • Fixed Premiums, Unfixed Incomes: Insurance premiums are paid annually which can be a heavy burden for those with fluctuating earnings. Imagine having to pay a fixed sum every month, even during slow seasons such as April to July for event organizers and photographers.
  • Pre-existing Conditions, Excluded Coverage: Existing health issues can lead to exclusions or sky-high premiums, leaving the most vulnerable without coverage at their time of greatest need.
  • Job gaps and hops. As a self employed person, employment is characterized by frequent job changes, delayed payments and issues beyond your control, this creates gaps in healthcare access.
  • No retirement plan: Insurance is designed to cover people only when they are in active employment. The cover is not extended to retirement. You can compare traditional insurance products here:
