4.7 million Filipino families are set to benefit from the “Pnoy PhilHealth day” that aims to provide health insurance coverage to “true” indigents in the country after they were evaluated and identified by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). “The truly poor will be sponsored by the government,” Department of Health (DoH) Secretary Enrique T. Ona said in a press briefing at the DoH compound in Manila on Tuesday.

The monthly contribution for PhilHealth amounts to 100 Pesos. For the indigents, 50 Pesos will be provided by the national government and the remaining 50 Pesos will be paid for by the local government. “In keeping with President Aquino’s promise to give each and every Filipino access to quality healthcare in three years time,” Ona said.
