“Introduction: The uptake of modern health services in developing countries remains low.
“However, high dropout rates and low enrollment rates hamper the implementation of the CBHI program. This study aimed to assess CBHI membership renewal and related factors in communities
“Results: Community member renewal was 67.3%. family size (AOR=2.54; 95% CI: 1.26-5.12), knowledge (AOR=1.87; 95% CI: 1.05-3.32), years of school enrollment (AOR=2.22; 95% CI: 1.39-3.54), enrollment fee contributors (AOR=9.16; 95% CI: 5.29-15.82), benefit packages (AOR=1.99; 95% CI: 1.18 -3.35), confidence in the CBHI system (AOR=3.53; 95% CI: 2.12-5.86), training (AOR=1.81; 95% CI: 1.01-3, 21), chronic diseases (AOR=6.82; 95% CI: 3.80-12.24) and children under five years of age (AOR=1.98; 95% CI: 1.27-3.10) were significant associated with renewal of CBHI membership. Low awareness, limited benefit packages, unaffordable premiums, poor quality of healthcare services and supply shortages were key factors in CBHI membership renewals. Conclusion: Renewal of CBHI membership was low. Family size, knowledge, years of enrollment, enrollment fee contributors, benefit packages, trust in the CBHI system, education, chronic illness, and children under the age of five were significantly associated with renewal of CBHI membership.
“In addition, there are correctable gaps in community awareness, benefit packages, affordable premiums, quality health services and the availability of relief supplies. Therefore, the necessary measures must be taken at all levels to reduce membership dropouts.”
