P5.1M allotted as medical aid for BGHMC indigent clients
by PIO release

The city council approved a resolution allocating P5.1 million as assistance to indigent patients at the Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center (BGHMC) who are bona fide residents of the city.

The resolution stated that this year, the city government appropriated P12.6M assistance to the BGHMC. Of the amount, P7.5M was programmed for the purchase of medical equipment to augment the existing units at the hospital while P5.1M is for medical assistance for indigent patients.

Under the resolution, the amount shall be allocated for the disposal of the concerned city officials, specifically the city mayor – P550,000; vice mayor – P350,000; and the 14 members of the local legislative body – P300,000 each.

Resolution 99, s. 2009 provides that the medical assistance shall only be for indigent patients who are bona fide residents of the city.

The assistance shall be extended to patients who are confined at the charity ward of the BGHMC for expenses for drugs, medicines, medical services, professional fees, laboratory tests, ECG, X-ray, surgery, and other medical or laboratory procedures, directly provided by the government hospital.

For outpatients and emergency patients, the resolution stipulated the funds may cover the same expenses as the above, but limited to what is directly provided by the hospital.

The resolution provides that the councilor or official shall identify and recommend, through a letter, the indigent and deserving patient who may avail of the medical assistance and that the letter, which will be addressed to the BGHMC medical center chief, should indicate the maximum amount the patient can avail of.

The guarantee letter should be accompanied by a proof that the beneficiary is a bona fide resident of the city and proof that the patient is an indigent.

In emergency cases, the requirements may be waived or submitted later by the patient after undergoing the emergency procedures.

The resolution added that the BGHMC, through its credit and collection office, shall furnish each official on a quarterly basis, the list of patients who have availed of the medical assistance program, including the amount of assistance extended for monitoring and recording purposes.

The grant of financial and medical assistance to the deserving indigent patients has been a continuing program of the local government started by previous administrations.
