Philhealth insurance for indigents cover thousands of Ozamiz city families

by Rutchie Cabahug-Aguhob

OZAMIZ CITY, Misamis Occidental, Jan. 21 (PIA) – A total of 15,019 families from the city’s 51 barangays were covered by the Philippine Health Insurance Program (PHIP) by four (4) sponsors, last year.

Of this number, 10,094 families were covered by Mayor Nova Princess E. Parojinog-Echavez, through the local government unit (LGU) of Ozamiz City, Ludie Salud A. Raras, City Social Welfare Officer (CSWO), said.

About 1,363 families were also covered by Governor Herminia Ramiro, through the Provincial Government Unit of Misamis Occidental.

Likewise, 3,205 families were covered by President Benigno S. Aquino III, while 357 others were covered by the Department of Health (DOH).

Meanwhile, Raras said their office is now cleansing their records to validate the number of families who will be re-enrolled in the PHIP for 2012.

“Right now, we are cross-checking our records to avoid any duplication of names in the roster of beneficiaries covered by these four (4) health insurance programs,” Raras said.

This is because there were instances in the past wherein the misspelled names of beneficiares resulted in double coverage for some of the families and in some cases, a family was covered by all the programs. (PIA-10 Mis. Occ.)
