PhilHealth issues IDs to rebel returnees
by Peter A. Balocnit / PIA

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – Two hundred one former members of the Cordillera People’s Liberation Army and New People’s Army rebel returnees and their dependents who are beneficiaries of the Office of the Presidential  Assistant on the Peace Process recently received their PhilHealth identification cards.

Jean Baawa of PhilHealth said the IDs entitle the beneficiaries to avail of primary government health institution’s services and benefits if they are confined in hospitals or claim for other health services.

Baawa said the beneficiaries were oriented on PhilHealth benefits and have appreciated learning about the “no balance billing,” one of the benefits they are all entitled to avail.

Baawa added they are conducting mapping on employers for temporary closure of their number on their employees’ PhilHealth membership for reason of their termination, as well as former barangay officials whose membership were sponsored while in public service but whose terms have ended.

Some who continued their membership as self-employed will still be mapped to temporarily close their employer’s number.

“After the mapping, we will visit them to re-enroll those who stopped paying their membership contribution or renew their membership to PhilHealth,” Baawa said.

Among other functions, the PhilHealth is tasked to administer the National Health Insurance Program, to formulate and promulgate policies for the sound administration of the program; to supervise the provision of health benefits and to set standards, rules and regulations necessary to ensure quality of care; appropriate utilization of services, fund viability, member satisfaction, and overall accomplishment of the program’s objectives.
