TABUK CITY, Kalinga – Two hundred one former members of the Cordillera People’s Liberation Army (CPLA) and New People’s Army rebel returnees and their dependents who are beneficiaries of the Office of the Presidential Assistant on the Peace Process recently received their Philhealth IDs.
Jean Baawa of Philhealth said their IDs entitle them to avail of Phlhealth benefits if they are confined in hospitals or claim for other health services.
The beneficiaries were oriented on Philhealth benefits and they are happy to learn about the ‘No Balance Billing’ benefit which they are all entitled to,” she said.
In another development, Baawa informed that they are conducting mapping on employers for temporary closure of their number on their employees’ Philhealth membership for reason of their termination as well as former barangay officials sponsored of their membership while in public service but their term ended.
Some who continued their membership as self-employed will still be mapped to temporary close their employer’s number. “After the mapping, we will visit them and enroll again those who stopped paying their membership contribution or renew their membership to Philhealth,” Baawa said./JDP/PAB-PIA CAR, Kalinga
