After no more than 48 hours of my PhilHealth online application, I received an e-mail this afternoon informing me that I am already a certified member of the Philippine Health (PhilHealth) Insurance Corporation.
I haven’t paid for my first contribution though, I am just really excited to receive my PhilHealth identification card soon. For the meantime, I will share to you what the possible benefits I will be getting as an Individual Paying Member of PhilHealth.
- PhilHealth provides subsidy for room and board, drugs and medicines, laboratory exam, use of operating room complex and professional fees for confinements of not less than 24 hours.
- Day surgeries, dialysis and cancer treatment procedures such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy in accredited hospitals and free-standing clinics.
- Some special packages for TB Treatments, SARS and AVIAN Influenza and A(H1N1) cases.
