Cambodian Delegates Visit PHL to Study National Health Insurance Program January 18, 2018

The Cambodian delegation will be in town for four days. The study visit began with a two-day discussion on topics such as the NHIP Story and Strategic Directions, PhilHealth Today – Bigger and Better Membership Programs by Virtue of RA 10606, PhilHealth Benefits and Availment of Services, Benefits Development and Accreditation of Health Care Providers, Actuarial Process and Valuation, PhilHealth Enterprise Architecture, Getting the Message Across – Communicating and Advocating NHIP, and the PhilHealth Feedback Mechanism. The delegates will also visit the Local Government Unit and Health Facilities as well as the PhilHealth Local Health Insurance Office in Calamba, Laguna to observe first-hand how the NHIP works.

Arsenia Torres, Senior Manager of PhilHealth’s Social Health Insurance Academy (SHIA) emphasized the importance of the study visit, citing the delegates’ need to explore and appreciate the NHIP and how it has become a success driver towards the Philippines’ quest for universal health coverage.

The study visit is the first for PhilHealth this year and the SHIA is expecting more delegates from other countries to learn more about social health insurance, the PhilHealth way. (END) (Glomeda C. Pactores)
