Bohol inks 2-year health coverage with PhilHealth

CEBU, Philippines - The Bohol provincial government has agreed to continue sponsoring the PhilHealth premium of some 32,564 poor families for a two-year coverage ending on December 31, 2013.

Despite concerns regarding increases in PhilHealth premiums, Governor Edgardo Chatto recently signed a memorandum of agreement with PhilHealth-Region 7 vice president William Chavez at the Governor’s Mansion in Tagbilaran City.

PhilHealth recently adjusted its contribution rate, including the annual premium of sponsored members that is now set at P2,400 per year, effective last January 1.

However, LGU-sponsored members whose coverage expired on December 31, 2011 were given an automatic three-month extension of coverage ending yesterday, March 31.

As an additional incentive, PhilHealth is offering another three-month extension (ending on June 30, 2012) to the coverage of existing members whose LGUs are willing to renew their sponsorship until the end of 2013 and commits to do so before July 2012.

On top of that, PhilHealth offers a 50-percent discount on the premium to LGUs who will renew, add or enroll sponsored members for the first time before July 2012.
