  2. Fill out the form
  3. On the outpatient medical facility form, you can indicate a different hospital for each of your family members.
  4. Visit your nearest NHIF branch and submit the change of medical facility form.

Alternatively, there is a national call-out for change of NHIF preferred facilities. When the call is out you are advised to visit your new hospital and change your preference.
