PhilHealth sets new COVID-19 rate benefits starting April 15
As we are in combat against COVID-19, PhilHealth shoulders hospitalization of every COVID-19 patient. PhilHealth assures that there is a sufficient fund but it is not unlimited. That is why they will impose new rates benefits per COVID-19 patient starting April 15 and onwards.
“Kaya nga tayo mag-e-enforce nitong case rate para meron tayong sustainability sa anti-COVID campaign. Although yung pondo ng PhilHealth is sufficient, hindi naman unlimited,” PhilHealth President Ricardo Morales said.
Case rate package is divided into four categories as follows:
- Mild pneumonia: P43,997
- Moderate pneumonia: P143,267
- Severe pneumonia: P333,519
- Critical pneumonia: P786,38
“Up to April 14, sasagutin ng PhilHealth. Walang dapat ibayad ang mga pasyente.Yung pneumonia kasi is the complication of COVID-19. Ang babasehan nito yung date of admission. If they are admitted after April 14 or April 15 onwards, ito ang gagamitin na rate sa kanila”, Morales explained.
