Phil Health 7 expands frontline services in Cebu City from Jan. 10-12by Fayette C. Riñen
CEBU CITY, Jan. 10 (PIA) -- The Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PHIC) 7 will expand its frontline services for three days in Cebu by setting up information desks in three big shopping malls starting today, January 10 until 12.
Phil Health social insurance officers will be deployed in the information desks at SM City-Cebu, Ayala Center Cebu and Parkmall in Mandaue City to accommodate requests for member data updating or issuance of Member Data Records (MDR) and Phil Health identification cards (PIC).
Supporting documents and proof of identity are needed as members are advised to bring the necessary requirements to complete the transaction.
The three-day expansion of frontline services is Phil Health’s participation and contribution to the Sinulog festivities.
PhilHealth personnel will likewise be at the National Economic Research and Business Action Center (NERBAC) from Jan. 16 to Feb. 17 for the issuance of Certificates of Good Payment Standing (CGPS) needed by business establishments and employers to secure business permits.
The issuance of CGPS in Cebu City to more than three establishments or branches handled by a single bookkeeper or company representative at the Phil Health Members’ Assistance Center (PMAC) is considered a bulk transaction and will begin on Jan. 16.
Prompt remitting and reporting business proprietors and employers on the other hand, enjoy the convenience of having their CGPS sent earlier.
Before 2011 ended, Phil Health’s Collection Section already released more than 2,000 CGPS to establishments with updated remittances and reports. This also helps fix Phil Health offices in business permit application deadlines.
Phil Health service offices in the cities of Mandaue, Carcar and Danao are also issuing CGPS on Mondays through Fridays. Additionally, Phil Health Danao will be issuing CGPS weekdays at the Bogo City hall and the municipal halls of San Remigio and Liloan. (PIA-Cebu with PR from Phil Health)
