Prov’l Government increases payment for PhilHealth insurance of 2,415 COs & JOs

LINGAYEN, PANGASINAN—A total of 2, 415 contracts of service and job order workers in the provincial government now have access to comprehensive social health insurance under PhilHealth’s Group Enrollment Program (GEP).

Under this program, Philhealth ensures that the workers, along with their qualified dependents (legal spouses and children below 20 years old without jobs or spouses), will receive healthcare benefits through monthly premium remittances and streamlined registration processes.

In relation to this, Ms. Tina Calamiong, personnel in charge of PhilHealth enrollment, stated that the premium payment of each worker covered by the provincial government increased from P400 last year to P500 this year.

The provincial board recently crafted a resolution authorizing Governor Ramon V. Guico III to sign a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with PhilHealth for the implementation of the National Health Insurance Program (NHIP) in the Provincial Government of Pangasinan.

As stated in the resolution, PhilHealth shall implement the NHIP through the Group Enrollment Program (GEP).

This significant initiative will not only expand the coverage of the PhilHealth membership but likewise ensure that individuals are included in the database to receive benefits.

The health program aligns with the priorities of Gov. Guico’s administration, particularly the provision of health protection for employees.
