Each of these plans are charged differently. Accommodation is also offered in different categories where there are 19 private rooms, 6 semi-private rooms, and a general ward.
There are however some services that are not offered at the maternity department such as treatment of preexisting illnesses, labor-inducing treatment, and vaccination using vaccines that are not included in the KEPI regime.
