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.
