MAASIN CITY, Southern Leyte February 28 (PIA) – The Philippine Health Insurance started receiving submitted lists from the different municipalities of non-PhilHealth-member constituents from the different barangays in the province.
LHIO Henry Madula of PhilHealth Southern Leyte reported during the DyDM-DYSL Kapihan sa PIA radio program last February 21, that massive registration at respective barangays across the province is now on going for all non-PhilHealth members whose ages ranges from 21 up to 59 years old. Madula said the latest development came about with the universal coverage program of all Filipino citizens under the national state insurance program as directed by President Rodrigo Duterte. He said that the registration will cover only those who have not been enrolled with PhilHealth ever since. The activity entails registration for possible funding by the Department of Budget and Development (DBM), he added. He further disclosed thatpresently the following sectors are already automatically covered with PhilHealth such as the senior citizens, Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) families, and National Household Targetting System (NHTS) beneficiaries.
