Additional information about the Cost of CT Scan Cost in Kenya

The cost of a CT scan test ranges from KES 6,000 to KES 15,000 depending on the body part being scanned and the medical facility. Government hospitals charge less than private medical facilities. For example, a CT Scan of the head (brain) costs KES 6,000 at Kenyatta National Hospital while the same costs KES 9,000 at a private diagnostic facility in Thika.


However, you can use NHIF for the CT scan but must be pre-approved by NHIF for private facilities. Pre-approval means you must fill out a form for the CT scan test and your NHIF details and the medical facility sends it to NHIF. You can proceed to have the test done after NHIF approves the CT scan test request.

The table below gives a summary of CT scan tests for various body parts and their prices (KES) in Nairobi and other cities and towns in the country). The CT scan prices may vary slightly depending on the hospital or health insurance company.
