1,365 Indigents Get PhilHealth Cards PDF Print E-mail
TAPAZ, Capiz (June10)— Gov. Victor Tanco personally distributed the PhilHealth cards to 1,365 indigent beneficiaries in Brgy. Taft here recently.
The distribution was in line with the continuing “Universal PhilHealth Coverage” campaign of the provincial government, and the realization of Tanco’s development agenda “Healthy Capizeño.”

“My administration focuses on projects which will benefit the people, above all. The PhilHealth Cards will help the beneficiaries since (the cards) will lessen expenses” when the latter will be hospitalized,” said Tanco.

He added: “This is a testament of my commitment to give quality healthcare, especially to the poor.”

Meanwhile, Acting Provincial Administrator and Legal Officer Atty. Jose Villanueva discussed with the beneficiaries the advantages of having PhilHealth cards.

Among these benefits are subsidies for hospital room and board, drugs and medicines, laboratories, and operating room and professional fees, for confinements of not less than 24 hours.

The beneficiaries were identified through surveys conducted by the local Barangay Health Workers from the different upland and lowland communities in this town.

Also present during the distribution were Vice Mayor Bob Gardose and Sangguniang Kabataan Federation-Capiz President, ex officio Provincial Board member Zoe Maria Felipe Herrera. (CPPB/PN)
