How Much Will Philhealth

It is a good thing to be a member of Philhealth as it assures you of assistance in paying your hospital bills.  Their recent update on the guaranteed membership of Senior Citizens added to the insurance’s value to Filipinos.  Patients recovering from their illnesses can sleep soundly knowing that they can count on ready assistance from Philhealth.

To help us understand better how far Philhealth will go to support us in our hospital expenses, here is a “price list” of Philhealth’s participation on certain medical and surgical cases.  It is best to consult with your doctor or hospital as well to be sure of the fees that will be charged to your account.
