PhilHealth Rolls Out Learner’s Material for Grade 10 Students

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world,” South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician, and philanthropist, Nelson Mandela said.

It is in the same principle that the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation through its Social Health Insurance Academy has initiated a full scale partnership with the Department of Education in order to integrate PhilHealth curriculum from basic to tertiary education.

The program was introduced to students in tertiary level of Sultan Kudarat Education Institute (SKEI) in Tacurong, Sultan Kudarat in 2015 which gained favorable feedbacks.

On the other hand, the program for basic education was introduced to Rizal High School at Brgy. Caniogan, Pasig City in the same year.

This year PhilHealth through its Regional Offices started rolling out the program per Region and PhilHealth XII under its Regional Vice President, Dr. Miriam Grace G. Pamonag has initially conducted the training to Dep-Ed XII MAPEH Division and District Coordinators led by Dep-Ed XII Regional Education Program Supervisor, Mr. Norman Valeroso.

RVP Pamonag said that PhilHealth cannot do it all alone. “I always believe in the power and authority of teachers in terms of influencing the minds of the young learners. I for one can attest because when my son was still young, he used to assert that his teacher said this and that and it is what is right. Indeed, there is no better way of introducing this program in order to become a lifestyle of the entire citizenry than having it done with the young.”

Mr. Valeroso in return said that Dep-Ed is willing to give its all out support for the benefit of the students and the nation as a whole.

Issues on its sustainable implementation was taken up during the forum and it was agreed during the meeting that both parties shall conduct the regular monitoring and evaluation to carry out the program successfully.

Dep-Ed assured PhilHealth that it has already institutionalized its standard monitoring and evaluation from the Division down to the District level and it can be utilized with this project. (Hanah g. Naanep, PRO III)
