boster n lng ung tinurok sa anak ko,nung 2010 na treat n cia ng anti rabies covered b ng philhealth ung boster?
Can you provide a list of private-owned bite treatment centers?
Hi Dewey, several private hospitals have their own bite treatment facilities, like St Luke’s, so just call your favorite private hospital and ask if they have anti-rabies or animal bite treatment. Muntinlupa? Try calling Medical Center Muntinlupa or Alabang Medical Center near Isuzu or Alabang Medical Clinic along Montillano St.
…..In Muntinlupa area.
Hi Joy, wala akong makita online or sa DOH/Philhealth database.
Gudam nakagat po kasi ang Anak ko ng aso naka first shot na po siya ng mabasa ko eto.gusto ko Sana sa taytay rhu na lang last 3 shots niya..ano po ba yun free? Kasi sabi accredited ng Philhealth.tnx
Hi sheila, visit Taytay RHU and ask. Even if you’re not able to use Philhealth, injection costs are lower, compared to private clinics.
hi mam, ask ko lang po nakagat ako ng aso 2 days ago, i went to san lazaro that same day and nainjectionan ako ng madaming vaccines. marereimburse ko po ba yung nagastos ko.. nasa 3k po yun eh. thanks po. paano po kaya ?
Hi may, you should have presented your Philhealth papers before treatment/payment so the benefit would have been deducted. Sorry I’m not sure if San Lazaro claims for refunds
Good Day! Can I claim for reimbursement for animal bite? philhealth dependent of my husband. was bitten by a cat May 20. Initial injection was at a private hospital then I went to PGH to restart my treatment. But I need to be injected with ERIG, out of stock at pgh so I had the injection at San Lazaro Hospital. I paid 3723 and I want to refund it. I’ll have my last injection at PGH on June 20.
Hi Grace, the animal bite benefit should be deducted by the center, so your Philhealth papers should have been presented before treatment or payment. No direct filing with Philhealth. Sorry I’m not sure if San Lazaro accepts claims for refunds.
if the animal bite center is not Philhealth-accredited, can I use my phikhealth? Animal bite center here in prenza marilao bulacan.
Hi malou, sorry, no. It should be Philhealth-accredited.
Hi malou, no, it should be Philhealth-accredited as an animal bite center
Hi po. Im from Paranaque. Malapit po ako sa Silverio Health Center. Nascratch po ako ng pusa. Nagpaturok na po ako nung initial. bale, 2nd ko na po by tom. Magkano po ung aabutin nun per session? Salamat po.
Hi Aika, coverage is 3k. Keep your receipts. Submit your Philhealth papers. Ask their Philhealth policy, whether you file upon first injection or before last injection.
Bukas po ba ang Silverio Health Center pag Sabado?
Is san laZaro open on saturday? For animal bite? Upon assessment, should I show my requirements so I don’t have to pay anything to the cashier?
Hi Sylver, bring your Philhealth docs and ask about their refund process. Usually, for animal bite treatment at San Lazaro, you pay first, and then refund.
Hi Sylver, the coverage is only 3k, so you have to pay the balance.
In an emergency, and you were not aware of eligibility for Philhealth coverage thus you didn’t bring requirements, how can one risk postponing getting the required inoculations for the anti rabies. I suppose the patient needs to pay the amount first, then submit the documents, and wait for about two months for the facility to be paid by Philhealth before it processes reimbursement to the payor.
i’m a new philhealth member. became a member last july self employed i pay 3 mos. can I avail my philhealth to avail the rabies Immunoglobulin shots?thanks.
Hi nikolai, did you pay for Jul to Sep? If yes, you can start using it in October. Requirement is payment of premiums for 3 months PRIOR to month of use.
mama was bitten by a dog so we went to the center for anti-tetanus and we were advised to go to silverio for antirabies shots. when we got there yesterday, they told us there were no more supplies, and it was aug.27 when doh last sent supplies. how often does doh deliver supplies to silverio?
Hi tabz, sorry I don’t know. It might be better if you find other animal bite centers near your place.
I was bitten by a dog last april this year and had anti rabies at san lazaro before I left for africa. Now I’m here in africa and I got bitten again by a puppy that was not vaccinated with anti rabbies. How long can my anti rabies vaccine that I had last april this year last? Up to when will this antirabies be effective for humans? Pls reply im worried.
Hi Gerrard, sorry I’m not a doctor, but I researched online, and the 2-injection vaccine can last up to 2 to 3 years. Did you complete the 3 or 4-injection antirabies treatment last April? If yes, I think you’re protected. But of course we can’t be too sure. Observe the puppy. If it remains healthy over 10 days, then most likely, it does not have rabies. Ask also Pinoys there about getting antirabies there in Africa. You can also ask your family to make inquiries at San Lazaro about your case.
How much package for ERIG?
Hi william, the full animal bite package is 3,000 pesos, available only at accredited animal bite centers. It may or may not include ERIG, depending on total costs.

Hi blessie, the Bataan Provincial Hospital in Balanga is an accredited animal bite package provider
Hi, I was bitten by a cat last March and was able to complete the anti-rabies vaccine. Nascratch ako ng pusa just this morning, do I need to get another dose of anti-rabies? Please reply. Thanks po
Hi Cherry, sorry I’m not a doctor. I hope you cleaned your wound thoroughly. And you need to consult again at the facility where you had your vaccination.
Good day ms. Nora you mean we need to get MDR from Philhealth office? I have my ID and quarterly receipts, are these not enough to avail the benefits? Is st. lukes accredited? Thanks!
Hi Jek, yes, you need your MDR. St Lukes is Philhealth-accredited, but it’s not an accredited animal bite center.
Gud evening. We live here in morong,rizal. where is the nearest public animal bite center here where I can use my philhealth for my child, 2years old. I’m not sure if it’s a bite or scratch by a cat. Want to get injection for him. thanks

Good morning nakagat po ng aso yung 6years old kong anak ko last Saturday night pero

Hi Jr, sorry hindi ako doctor, so ang the best is to bring your daughter to the doctor and ask. Check nio na lang itong list of accredited hospitals.
