Philhealth Rights of OFWs


My OFW Story is a public service program that tracks the challenging journeys of Overseas Filipino Workers across the globe. Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) are hailed as the country’s new economic heroes for their efforts in uplifting the lives of their families and bolstering the national economy through remittances. In service to this valuable sector My OFW Story brings to perspective current issues facing Filipino migrant workers and educates them on existing policies so they can be made aware of their rights and be able to protect themselves. Through re-enactment of personal stories, viewers are given a glimpse of the daunting working conditions most of these workers face on a daily basis. The program also reaches out to help solve real-life cases of OFWs in need of immediate assistance. My OFW Story is hosted by Atty. Wilhelm Soriano, former Administrator of the Overseas Workers’ Welfare Administration (OWWA).

    3. Alam ninyo guys Sa isang 100 % na OFW na nagpamember Sa PhilHealth cguro 3%lng ang makikinabang Sa hulog Nila kasi ang PhilHealth pag once hininto ninyo ang pagbabayad Hindi ninyo mapakikinabangan Yan maliban Kung magbayad kayo ulit ng contribution for 1years maliit lng ang matutulong Sa inyo Kung matalino kayo I bangko na lng pera ninyo tutubo pa Yan pagnagkasakit kayo ng malubha withdraw lng kayo Sa bangko kaysa sayangin lng ninyo bayad Dyan Sa PhilHealth na Yan kasi Ako Ilan taon na rin member Dyan walang pakinabang Yan skin

    8. My friend was hospitalized here in Singapore is it possible that we can reimbursement please need all your advice Sir in behalf of my friend She is Diabetic she need help

    9. Gusto ko Lang po itanong, about Z benefits. Ang anak ko po na confine and she was diagnose of leukemia. First confinement po may coverage po NG philhealth. Nga you po na confine unit ang anak ko for the second time and our bill reach to as 180thousand. Now the problem is my daughter come to philhealth again but unfortunately Sabi NG philhealth d na po mag covered ang philhealth Dahil the same diagnose Lang po. Nagugulohan po Ako dahil dto sa z-benefits na inimplement nyu…. Salamat Sana masagot nyu posted ang katanongan ko. I sang ofw Ako at kahit ano man gawin ko talagang d ko makayanan ang mahabang gamotan Para sa anak ko. Malamang Salazar!

    10. Pano po pag d ngmit ang philhealth hanggang mmtay ka..eh di mwwla rin ung ibinayad ng 10 yrs…at dba may free philhealth na ang senior citizen..hnd ba unfair?bkit pag nhinto ang pgbbyad sabi nyo dna mgmit philhealth pg naospital khit bayad ng 10 yrs..smantalang hndi nmn ngmit..magulo po kayo..hindi ba dpt covered kapa rin ng 10 yrs.sa philhealth khit ntigil bayad as long as hindi pa ngmit?

    11. sad to say walang pakinabang yan philhealth kahit ikaw ay active member dahil in patient lang , tapos yong gamot puro sa labas bibilhin, hindi na mareinverse, wala namang gamot sa pharmacy ng hospital, tapos 10 percent mareinverse

    12. Philhealth hindi nagamit ng anak ko dahil kailangan ng hospital ang signature ko ,wala akong pera pamasahe para umuwi ng pilipinas ano anong dapat gawin bumibili ako ng philhealth di naman nagagamit .

    13. Sa hospital ng hongkong ako na surgery. Ung insurance ko dito binigay ng employer ko mga ngastos sa hospital room..ako po ba pwedeng magfile ng medical record ko sa philhealth..
