The health care system in The Bahamas needs to become more modern, affordable and accessible. NHI Bahamas aims to do just that.

The new Government programme ensures that all legal Bahamian residents – no matter your income, age, island of residence or current health status – can receive health care at no cost at point of service. Cost for health care is paid for in full or in part, by Government.

The National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) has been established to oversee the implementation of NHI Bahamas. The Insurance Commission of The Bahamas (ICB) is involved with licensing and regulating insurance companies in coordination with NHIA.

NHI Bahamas is being rolled out in phases:

In the first phase of coverage (Primary Care), legal Bahamian residents receive a number of health services at no out of pocket cost at point of care. The full list of benefits can be viewed here.

So what can you do? For access to Primary Care coverage, you need an NIB Smart Card. For details on registration, call 225-5642 or visit Get your card to get your care.

If you have your Smart Card, you can enrol in the programme and select your primary care provider by filling out the online enrolment form here.
