How the Partnership Works

Through this partnership, Zambians will be able to pay health insurance premiums via the NHIMA platform by selecting SPENN as the form of payment. The user would then get a payment request to approve on the SPENN app. In the first phase, users pay through the NHIMA platform, and in phase 2, payments can be made directly in the SPENN app. This makes the process more accessible and convenient for all users.

Payment Stream and Technology

SPENN’s integrated payment system with NHIMA means that each transaction contributes to SPENN’s revenues, creating a new income stream based on transaction volume. Additionally, digitizing the premium collection will reduce NHIMA’s costs and improve service quality for users.

Current Payment Methods in Zambia

Currently, Zambians use various methods to pay for health insurance, including cash and electronic payments. SPENN is already a popular payment solution in Zambia, and this partnership will further extend its usage.

Impact of the Partnership

This partnership with the Zambian government strengthens SPENN Technology’s position in the market. It demonstrates the government’s trust in our technology and our contribution to the region’s economic growth.


As of 2021, NHIMA in Zambia has registered over one million principal members in its health insurance program, covering the public and private sectors, as well as ordinary citizens.

SPENN Technology og NHIMA Partnership: Fremmer Økonomisk og Helsemessig Inkludering i Zambia

SPENN Technology inngår nytt samarbeid med National Health Insurance Management Authority (NHIMA) i Zambia. Dette partnerskapet vil gjøre det enklere å betale helseforsikringspremier og utvider SPENN Technologys tilbud.

Hvordan Samarbeidet Fungerer

Gjennom dette samarbeidet vil zambiere kunne betale helseforsikringspremier via NHIMAs nettsted og app ved å bruke SPENN. I første fase betaler brukere via NHIMA-plattformen, og i fase 2 kan betalingene gjøres direkte i SPENN-appen. Dette gjør prosessen enklere og mer tilgjengelig for alle brukere.

Betalingsstrøm og Teknologi

SPENNs integrerte betalingssystem med NHIMA betyr at hver transaksjon bidrar til SPENNs inntekter. Dette gir oss en ny inntektsstrøm basert på antall transaksjoner. I tillegg vil digitaliseringen av premieinnsamlingen redusere NHIMAs kostnader og forbedre tjenestekvaliteten for brukerne.

Nåværende Betalingsmetoder i Zambia

I dag bruker zambiere forskjellige metoder for å betale helseforsikring, inkludert kontanter og elektroniske betalinger. SPENN er allerede en populær betalingsløsning i Zambia, og dette samarbeidet vil utvide bruken ytterligere.

Virkning av Partnerskapet

Dette partnerskapet med Zambias regjering forsterker SPENN Technology sin rolle i markedet. Det viser tillit fra regjeringens side til vår teknologi og vårt bidrag til regionens økonomiske vekst.


Per 2021 har NHIMA i Zambia registrert over en million medlemmer i sitt helseforsikringsprogram, som dekker offentlig og privat sektor samt vanlige borgere.
