PhilHealth Campaign In R-12 Up

KORONADAL CITY (PIA) - The Region-12 office of the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth-12) and the city government of General Santos have intensified their campaign against healthcare fraud by distributing member data records (MDRs) with the family picture of sponsored program members and their qualified dependents.

At a recent MDR distribution attended by General Santos Local Health Insurance Office head Nol Valila and City Social Welfare and Development Officer Rebecca V. Magante, 712 sponsored program members listed under the National Household Targeting System-Poverty Reduction (NHTS-PR) gathered in Barangay San Jose, General Santos City.

The members brought their spouses, children, and parents aged 60-years-old and above to have their pictures taken and printed on the MDRs.

Dr. Miriam Grace G. Pamonag, Field Operations Division chief of PRO-12 said that this initiative will "put a face" to the MDR and ensure that only the intended beneficiaries will be able to use the MDRs for purpose of claiming PhilHealth benefits in any accredited hospitals and non-hospital facilities.

Further, PRO-12 urged all accredited health care providers to access the list of NHTS-PR members to verify their status and eligibility.

PhilHealth Cares nurses assigned in selected hospitals in the region can also assist in the verification process through their Customer Service Information System.
