Health workers’ medical expenses covered – PHIC
by Press release

The Philippine Health Insurance Corporation will shoulder all medical expenses of all health workers should they fall ill during the period of the coronavirus disease-2019 (Covid-19) pandemic.

This is line with the desire of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte to protect the welfare and uphold the morale of all health workers in public and private health facilities.

PhilHealth made the assurance in light of the passage of Republic Act 11469 or Bayanihan to Heal as One Law.

Health care workers include volunteers who have been asked to augment or reinforce the health workforce and non-medical personnel necessary for the operation of a health facility like janitors, security guards, and maintenance personnel.

PhilHealth reiterated that it is in the midst of releasing P30 billion worth of financial assistance to health facilities through its Interim Reimbursement Mechanism (IRM) to help hospitals respond to the Covid-19 threat.

This will include hospitals and clinics with existing issues or under sanctions with the national health insurer.

Hospitals wishing to use this facility are advised to contact the PhilHealth personnel assigned to their area and accomplish a memorandum of agreement reflecting the amount applied for.  This procedure should be completed in not more than five working days.

As of March 25, PhilHealth has paid out P1.617B under the IRM program.

It has also paid out P 6.856B as part of its regular benefits payment and P 2.96B under its accelerated Return to Hospital program as of March.
