Philhealth Deduction for Colonoscopy

COLONOSCOPY is mainly a diagnostic procedure. Your doctor uses a colonoscope to examine your large intestine (rectum and colon) and the lower part of your small intestine.

A colonoscope is a thin flexible tube that has a small video camera at the tip.

Colonoscopy is used to find tumors, polyps, ulcers, inflammation and bleeding in your large intestine.
It can also be used to collect tissue samples for biopsy.

  1. Hello. i would like to ask for example. I will have to under go colonoscopy how much will i pay including pf and hospital. How much philhealth will cover. Thank you.

    1. Hi Ferdinand, you should ask your doctor, kasi iba-iba ang presyo nila. Tanungin mo “Doc, how much ang cashout ko kung gagamit ako ng Philhealth?”. With this question, you will know rin kung Philhealth-accredited yong doctor. Pag basic colonoscopy: 14,960 ang total deduction (PF: 7,560, Hospital: 7,400). Kapag merong tatanggalin, total deduction ay 18k (PF: 8,400, Hospital: 9,600).

  2. What hospital offers the best colonoscopy services?

    1. Hi Gannie, sorry wala akong ma-recommend. Makati Medical Center siguro. I-research mo yong mga gastroenterologists sa MMC. Gastroenterologists have special training in colonoscopy. In case of colorectal surgery, ang mag-perform ng surgery is the colorectal surgeon. Or mag-research ka online ng gastroenterologists na merong mga good comments. Mag-research ka na rin ng mga tips to do or foods to eat prior to colonoscopy para mas effective yong procedure.
