Kalinga allots P17.6 M for PHIC members
by Peter A. Balocnit / PIA

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – The provincial government sustains its allotment of P17.6 million in its provincial budget to pay the PhilHealth contribution of 7,300 sponsored members.

Provincial Administrator Kristian Wandag said the provincial government has to maintain assistance to indigents under its social services program in order for said members to of avail free hospital confinement.

He said the LGU also allots the amount to discourage doctors from charging professional fees from indigent patients confined in charity wards since half of what will be reimbursed by PhilHealth will go to them.  

Wandag said the provincial hospital earns from PhilHealth reimbursements. “We generate income more than what we spend,” Wandag said explaining that 50 percent of the total collection from PhilHealth reimbursement goes to doctors and 50 percent to nursing and other allied services.

The provincial government also shoulders payment of medicines purchased outside of the provincial hospital but also on reimbursement basis. Patients will be reimbursed upon presentation of an official receipt.
