PhilHealth at 21: Celebrating achievements, improvements

The Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) highlighted its accomplishments, various benefit packages, innovations, and new and strengthened partnerships when its celebrated its 21st anniversary recently.

An attached agency of the Department of Health (DOH), PhilHealth was established in 1995 to provide universal health coverage for Filipinos.

The celebration, held at the Chardonnay by Astoria in Pasig City, was led by Health Secretary Janette L. Garin, PhilHealth President Alexander A. Padilla and board members, and attended by officials of several PhilHealth partners and member-institutions, both private and public.

Together, they looked back at the achievements of the agency and cited the efforts made to ensure “universal health coverage for all Filipinos.”

In his speech, Padilla said they have introduced several innovations to ease the tasks of membership, such as member’s inquiry facility; all case rates engine facility; unclaimed refunds, which are now on line; electronic premium remittance system (EPRS), the one-stop online portal for overseas Filipino workers (OFWs); and My PhilHealth Portal.

He added that among the current innovations that had been introduced were the enhancement of benefits, such as the expansion of contracting for the delivery of the Z Benefit Package; the expansion of the hemodialysis and peritoneal-dialysis packages; and the enhancement of the outpatient HIV/AIDS treatment package.

The Z Benefit Package is being offered to PhilHealth members to address health conditions that lead to prolonged hospitalization and very expensive treatments.

Padilla also mentioned the assistance they had provided to families affected by Supertyphoon Yolanda (international codename: Haiyan) in November 2013, as well as citations and awards as they move forward.

The PhilHealth chief also announced several partnerships to ensure that their service delivery will be further enhanced and can reach more Filipinos who should be receiving them to realize the Philippines’s goal of having universal health care.

Such partnerships include those with select private hospitals, which will provide the Z Benefit Package and the No-Balance Billing system to sponsored and indigent members, providing membership to orphaned children under the care of the Department of Social Welfare and Development-accredited child-caring institutions.
