In line with its vision, “Bawat Filipino Miyembro, Bawat Miyembro Protektado, Kalusugan Natin Segurado,” all indigents under the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) and Modified Conditional Cash Transfer Program members (MCCT) are automatically entitled to avail of their PhilHealth benefits until December 31, 2017 per Advisory No. 2017-0001.

“…Pending the completion of auto-renewal for CY 2017, they remain entitled to benefits upon presentation of 4Ps or MCCT ID issued by DSWD,” Acting President and CEO, Ramon F. Aristoza, Jr. stated.

While those indigents under the Listahanan 1 of DSWD whose coverage also ended December 31, 2016 shall be subject to validation by PhilHealth when availing of benefits; they are automatically renewed for CY 2017 and shall be issued of Member Data Record (MDR).

These indigents are also entitled to “No Balance Billing Policy”. Meaning, members and their dependents can enjoy PhilHealth benefits with no out of pocket expenses as long as said benefits are availed from any government facilities on a ward type of accommodation. (hanah g. naanep, PRO III)
