PHILIPPINE HEALTH SYSTEM
One of my students, a family woman came crying because her husband was very sick. She said, she is very confused and does not know what to do. The doctors told her that her husband needs immediate major chest operation. She does not have any savings, and does not know if anyone can loan or lend her some amount to cover the expenses. I simply ask her if her husband paid the monthly premiums of her Philhealth amounting to 1 hundred pesos per month for a year. She said yes, I am sure he did. So, I told her, go and check what he can avail from that government insurance and pray. The following morning she sent me a text message saying: Ma’am thanks to you very much! My husband was successfully operated and the insurance paid the seventy five thousand for the surgery.
