THE Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) today called on Filipinos who are not yet members to drop by any of the SM or Bayad Center branches in the National Capital Region to register and avail themselves of the new PhilHealth card.
Aside from SM branches in the NCR, the registration activity is also ongoing in branches of Bayad Center at the Robinsons Department Stores and Supermarkets, Walter Mart, The Landmark in Trinoma and Makati, Isetann and Ever Gotesco Malls.
Bayad Center outlets in eBusiness Services, Inc., Mail More and Villarica Pawnshop, also in the NCR started accepting registration applications last October 1 and their branches in USSC Service Stores in the NCR are also welcoming PhilHealth registration applications.
The registration campaign is primarily intended for non-PhilHealth members who have the means to pay for their own premium contributions.
With the new PhilHealth card, members may avail themselves of discounts on health and wellness products and services in selected partner-merchants such as Watson's, South Star Drug, Rose Pharmacy, Vivian Sarabia Optical, Fresenius Medical Care, JNW Drug Testing Inc., and PQ Health Shield.
Prospective registrants at SM branches must bring any valid ID card, copies of supporting documents for qualified dependents he wants to declare under his membership and payment of P360.00 inclusive of one quarter premium, registration fee and card. Bayad Center outlets, on the other hand, will charge P358.00 for the same card. For more details about the new card and the ongoing registration activity, interested parties may call the PhilHealth Call Center at 441-7442. (END)
