Oro gov't awards Philhealth cards to 777 indigent families

Cagayan de Oro City (19 September) -- THE city government of Cagayan de Oro awarded on Wednesday a total of 777 indigent families from barangays Puntod and Macabalan with PhilHealth cards that will provide them medical insurance.

During the holding of the People to People Program in Barangay Macabalan, City Mayor Constantino G. Jaraula personally handed the Philhealth cards to the beneficiaries of the city government's health insurance for the indigents program.

Together with Vice Mayor Vicente Y. Emano and other members of the city council and representatives of PhilHealth-10, Mayor Jaraula turned over the PhilHealth cards to some 350 poor families in Barangay Macabalan and another 427 families in the nearby Barangay Puntod.

Macabalan barangay chair Norbel Saa accepted 350 cards for the beneficiaries coming from Macabalan, while Puntod barangay chair Marvin Beja accepted the 427 cards for the beneficiaries coming from Puntod.

The city government allocated P6 million for the health insurance of some 10,000 families all over the city identified as the poorest of the poor through the Social Reform Agenda-Minimum Basic Needs (SRA-MBN) survey.

Mayor Jaraula said that the program has helped a lot of indigent families gain access to quality health care and stressed the need to ensure good health and wellbeing of the residents as a key to a truly progressive city. (Cagayan de Oro City IO/PIA-MisOrOccCam i-Net) [top]
