PIA Press Release

PhilHealth Eastern Samar tops universal coverage in Region 8

By Alice Nicart

City (7 January) -- Mrs. Josephine "Nick-nick" B. Mosquisa, Chief, Social Insurance Officer of PHILHEALTH, this province was all smiles when she reported to this writer that for another year, their effort paid off: PhilHealth Eastern Samar beat all other field offices in the Region and grabbed the topmost rank.

"Thanks to the support of Governor Ben Evardone who provided some P23,000.00 which facilitated the additional enrolment of indigents," Mosquisa revealed.

Nick-nick added that last November, per assessment of the National Statistics Coordination Board (NSCB), they were able to achieve the 95% coverage based on the 2009 population.

Asked to translate such achievement into a common language, the lady chief said it means 35% increase or more benefits are in store for the members.

She said that for room and board in secondary hospitals, 1st to 4th normal deliveries of mothers could avail of P400.00 a day from the previous P300.00. In cases of AH1N1, (just in case) the member or his dependent can avail of P75,000 insurance in a DOH accredited hospital but any health worker who might be inflicted of the disease would have some P100,000.00 health insurance.

Moreover, Ms. Mosquisa stressed that OPD services for indigents in accredited Rural Health Units still prevail so with the treatment for TB Dots.

Still a productive mother that she could be, who could relate to the pains of motherhood, Nick-nick once more reiterated the advocacy that "NO WOMAN SHOULD DIE GIVING LIFE" and No woman may not put the bills, because PHILHEALTH offers maternity health packages for P6,500.00 in the 10 RHUs in Eastern Samar: Lawaan, Balangiga, Oras, Maslog, Sulat, San Julian, Maydolong, Hernani, Salcedo and LLorente.
