CarePay was first established in Kenya with an initial investment from the M-PESA Foundation (funded by M-Pesa, the hugely popular mobile payment system launched by Safaricom/Vodafone) and the Investment Funds for Health in Africa (IFHA). CarePay partnered with PharmAccess Foundation and Kenyan telco Safaricom to develop a smart health payment distribution platform branded as M-TIBA as Kenya.
In Kenya, M-TIBA is the preferred health payment platform for the government, retail and private health sector. It is a proven health payments integrator, revolutionising the management of large-scale health schemes and supporting the drive for Universal Health Coverage in Kenya.
So far, M-TIBA has connected over 4 million users and 1,200 healthcare providers to the platform. Its scale and increasing data value have attracted a growing number of public and private partners, including corporate employers, the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF), institutional donors, banks and private insurers.
Over 4.5M lives have been connected to M-TIBA in Kenya.
Over 715,000 treatment claims have been handled by our platform.
Over KES 750M of medical pay out has been done by the platform.
“CarePay can do for healthcare inclusion what M-PESA has done for financial inclusion. It provides speed, accountability and massively simplifies the user payments experience.”
Bob Collymore, former CEO Safaricom
