Its also important to note that NHIF offers different services and so its important to inquire with them based on the service you pay for. There is Inpatient, Inpatient, Linda mama, Supa cover, civil servants and Eduafya sercices. Like the handbook mentioned by @Lucy is for civil servants.

Yes, they cover dental services but it depends on your hospital. some hospitals can charge you for dental treatment on the nhif card but some excludes it and thus you'll have to pay for it externally.
