PhilHealth members no longer need to guess how much of their hospital bills will be shouldered by PhilHealth. With the Case Rate Search app, you can begin exploring the different medical cases and corresponding rates that are covered by PhilHealth and take the guesswork out of the entire billing process.
Before the app was made available, PhilHealth members would have to wait for the hospital’s billing department to facilitate their accounts before they can get a view of PhilHealth’s participation in their hospital bill. This is a concern for most members and has even become a reason for others to refuse confinement. When patients are unaware of how much of their bill PhilHealth will be paying, they become concerned with their expenses and decide against having themselves admitted for proper treatment and observation.
Although PhilHealth’s participation is not applied on the patient’s bill until the attending physician has given a final diagnosis, it is still best to have an advance view of the possible deductions that the patient can look forward to. This serves as a guideline for the patient and his family, assuring them that they will not have to shoulder all of the medical expenses on their own.
