    1. Hi maricar, dapat nadeduct yong coverage mo before discharge. Did you file your Philhealth with the hospital? Is this a government hospital? If yes, wait for your benefit payment notice from Philhealth through postal mail, then go to your hospital with the notice, ORs and hospital docs and ask for a refund.

  1. good day, inoperahan po kagabi brother ko…acute panceatitis at inalis mo appendix nia…magkano po ba mababawas sa bill nia?

    1. Hi edgie, yong pag-alis ba ng appendix niya ang main procedure na ginawa? If yes, ang coverage for appendectomy is 24,000 (14400 for hospital costs and 9600 for PF)

    1. Hi Jho, yes, basta senior automatic Philhealth lifetime member na. Pero merong mga hospitals/clinics nirerequire nila ang MDR or ID from Philhealth; yong iba naman, require lang nila senior citizen ID. 2 options to get Philhealth ID card: sa Philhealth nearest your residence or sa OSCA in your town/city. Bring senior citizen ID and 1×1 ID photo

  2. Ask ko lang po. Nag undergo ako ng cholecystectomy. Package ung usapan namin ng doctor na 130k pero less pa daw Philhealth. Pagdating ng bill ung hospital cost lang ang binawas na 18k. Pano po ung sa PF. Marerefund po ba un?

    1. Hi Kelly, dahil sabi ng doctor mo na “less pa daw Philhealth” dapat mai-minus din yong PF na 12,400 at dapat 18,600 ang deduction for hospital cost. Tanungin mo yong hospital bakit hindi binawas. Ipilit mo na irefund

  3. Hi good day ask q lng poh if ofw ako, ung mama q ba mka avail ng philhealth koh ? Db my discount yun? Ooperahan po cya sa gallbladder nya. At paano nla ma avail yun dto po ako Singapore. Slamat poh

    1. Hi Analiza, is your mama 60 years old or older? Puede lang dependent ang mother or father kung 60 years old or older at kung merong permanent disability with medical certificate. Bukod doon, pag 60 or older na, puede na silang Lifetime free member as senior citizens.
