SENIOR CITIZEN - Antolin dela Serna - Banat

Ang Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth), nagpahinumdom sa mga senior citizens nga pinasikad sa balaud, covered sila ubos sa National Health Insurance Program sumala sa Republic Act  10645, gisubli sa Republic Act 1133 o ang Universal Health Care Law of 2019.

So, mandatory kining atong pagpa-rehistro with PhiliHealth. Ania:  “Seniors who no longer have an existing membership with the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) are reminded to register to be able to avail of privileges, while retirees are expected to update their records.”

Ug dugang pa: “Senior citizens’ annual premium contributions shall be borne by the national government from the proceeds of RA No. 10351 (Sin Tax Law), provided that they are not currently covered by any existing (membership) category of PhilHealth.”

So, ang gobiyerno maoy moabaga sa tinuig nga kontribusyon, kini gikan sa gitawag nga sin taxes, kon buhis gikan sa mga bisyo, sama sa pagpanigarilyo.

Hinuon, aron makapahimulos kita niining mga prebilihiyo gikan sa PhilHealth, kinahanglan wala kitay regular nga source sa income.

Sa ato pa, kon duna kay regular nga income, perhaps gikan sa imong negosyo o sa panarbaho, dili ka maka-avail sa mga privileges gikan sa PhilHealth. Alang lang gyud kini niadtong wala nay kinitaan ug wala nay kapanginabuhian.

Matud ni PhilHealth President ug CEO Atty. Dante A. Gierran kinahanglan makaseguro ang mga senior citizens nga ma-duly registered sila ug ma-updated ang ilang record with PhilHealth.

“We have partnered with the Office for Senior Citizens Affairs (OSCA) in the local government units so that elderly Filipinos can be registered with PhilHealth conveniently, ” nagkanayon si Gierran.

Unsaon man? Mo-submit lang og duha ka duly accomplished PhilHealth Member Registration Form (PMRF) ngadto sa OSCA sa dapit nga nagpuyo ang senior citizen.

In the case of Cebu City, adto i-submit sa buhatan sa OSCA, either sa executive building  o sa Finance Center bldg.  sa dalan MCBriones, kilid sa Senior Citizens Park ug atbang sa PNB-Cebu.

Kining giingon ni Gierran nga nakig-partner sila uban sa mga buhatan sa OSCA, mahitungod niining pag-submit sa registration form ngadto sa PhilHealth, naa ba ni, Jeff Ocampo? 

Hinuon, kon ang mga senior citizens adto mag-parehistro sa Local Health Insurance Office (LHIO), mo-submit sila sa kopya sa ilang OSCA ID or any government-issued ID nga magmatuod sa ilang edad, ug 1x1 nga hulagway nga kuha, at least sulod sa niaging unom ka bulan.

Ug alang sa Central Visayas, “senior citizens may email their registration or data amendment transactions to the nearest PhilHealth LHIO. Email addresses of the LHIOs may be found in the directory of offices on the PhilHealth website www.philhealth.gov.ph.”

Ug ang mga retirees nga nakaabot na sa compulsory age of retirement, ug naka-contribute og balig napulo ka tuig, o 120 ka bulan, ug wala nay laing source of income, kinahanglan i-update ang ilang record ubos sa Lifetime membership.

Ug nia pa: “As of June 2021, Philhealth noted some 8.4 million senior citizen members and 1.3 million Lifetime members plus 3.3 million qualified dependents. From January to June 2021, PhilHealth has paid a total of P9.408 billion in benefits representing some 988,000 claims filed by elderly members nationwide.
