The Philippine Health Insurance Corporation’s Regional Office IVA (PRO IVA) convened a total of 65 school representatives in the recently held Project Welcome in Laguna and Quezon.
Project Welcome is a venue to tap colleges and universities and involve school administrators, student affairs and student councils in increasing awareness on PhilHealth. Likewise, it aims to help encourage students who are 21 years old and above to register and pay their PhilHealth premiums. This activity is also intended to gather inputs, suggestions and other project mechanisms from the participants and raise awareness among graduating students about PhilHealth programs and benefits.
Present in the event were Arsenia Torres, Senior Manager of PhilHealth’s Social Health Insurance Academy, who spoke about the Integration of the Social Health Insurance module into the Tertiary Education Curriculum. Alberto C. Manduriao, PRO IVA Regional Vice President and Annalisa Astilla gave the orientation about Project Welcome and PhilHealth Programs.
The participants also organized the schedules for the conduct of Project Welcome in their respective colleges/universities. (END)(Jose Gerard V. Aranilla)
