OWWA And PhilHealth Launches New MEDPLUS Program For OFWs


Another hooray for OFWs for their personal health insurance or public health insurance for their families!
The Vice President for Corporate Affairs Group of

PhilHealth, Dr. Israel Francis Pargas announced the recently launched program for Overseas Filipino Workers - the OWWA ad PHILHEALTH OFW MEDPLUS.






 Bandila also reported it here in this video news below.


WHAT IS OFW MedPlus? 

OFW MedPlus is a program worked together by OWWA (Overseas

Workers Welfare Administration) and PhilHealth which provides health assistance and medical health benefit for  OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker)  in case they are confined in hospitals abroad.

WHO CAN AVAIL THIS BENEFIT?
Aside from the OFW, this assistance can also be availed by the OFW's qualified dependent/s in the Philippines. 
Dr. Pargas further explained, “…it’s a benefit for our active members and PhilHealth members na kung sila ay mao-ospital or maco-confine due to a dreaded disease,[mayroong] on top of [that] na ibibigay ang OWWA as a benefit doon sa ating mga members…This is a 50,000-peso benefit para sa mao-ospital na mga active OWWA and PhilHealth members. So on top of that na binibigay ng PhilHealth, sila ay bibigyan pa rin ng 50,000 [pesos]… although this is for one time financial incentive...”


Requirements For The OFW MedPlus

According to Dr. Pargas, for OFWs to be able to avail the said

benefit, they should qualify to the following:

1. The Overseas Filipino Worker should be an active OWWA and PhilHealth member.

2. The identified illness must be under the category of “dreaded” disease.

3.  The annual benefit limit from PhilHealth hasn’t consumed.

4.   The health care facility where confined is accredited.

Process for Filing Claim Forms


If confined abroad, the Overseas Filipino member should provide

their claim forms (which is also known as PhilHealth Claim Form 1) together with the medical record (or operation record if operation is performed) and Statement of Account. Within 180 days from the date of discharge, it should be sent either via overseas courier or e-mail to the PhilHealth Office or any Local Health Insurance Office nearest to the member.


On  the other hand, if the OFW or his qualified dependent is confined in the Philippines, claim form (PhilHealth Claim Form 1) must be neatly filled out and submitted to the Billing Section of the accredited hospital before the date of  discharged.

Dr. Pargas plainly discussed that the two departments

provided an amount of nearly 150 Million Pesos for this year only. This is favourable to all our OFWs and their families in case of emergency for medical health insurance benefits. Hopefully, this program could help and assist thousands of OFWs across the globe who may have health issues.

HAVE YOU SEEN THE NEW PHILIPPINES PASSPORT AND ONE OF THE SAFEST PASSPORT IN THE WORLD?


Via Jobstreet"All Philippine passports are now integrated with chips that contain the data of the holder. These new passports are called ePassports. The ePassport is a global standard in travel documents, and as a member of International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the Philippines is required to adhere to their standards.


The chip embedded in the ePassport contains data essential in verifying the identity of the passport holder. It contains data on the personal information found on the data page of the passport, the biometrics of the passport holder, the unique chip identification number and a digital signature to verify the authenticity of the data stored on the chip. This technology allows the information stored in an ePassport to be read by special chip readers at a close distance, such as the scanners used in immigration counters."

“A world class passport that would deserve the respect and recognition, of course, by all other governments,” said DFA Ambassador Libran Cabactulan in an ABSCBN report. “It will really enhance the image of the Filipino because they will now be carrying passports that I would say nearly impossible to fake, to be compromised.”
Enhanced security features include an embedded chip containing biometric information used to authenticate the identity of the traveler, including a photo, fingerprints, and signature.

“It will establish a one-to-one correspondence between the document and yourself,” he said. “In other words, it will establish beyond doubt that you are the person alleged to be holding this passport.”
The chip has provisions to accept additional information that may be required in the future.
Cabactulan said while each page of the new passport tells a story about the Philippines, these designs are part of its new security measures as well.
“It will have some educational objective as well,” he said. “There will be lines and colors and combinations here that I cannot even tell you because that’s part of the security.”

Malaysia Issued Suspension On Recruitment Of Foreign Workers




Malaysia said they would freeze the recruitment of temporary foreign workers. This is due to the protest against the plan to hire 1.5 million workers to satisfy the industry demands.

On Friday, the government suspended the recruitment of all foreign workers, with a plan to also review their foreign employment policies.

The Malaysian Government's priority right now is to provide employment opportunities to its local workers.

Announcing the decision, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the suspension would enable the Government to reconsider the revised two-tier levy for foreign workers.


"Further details on the decision to freeze foreign worker recruitment will be announced by the Government," the Human Resources Minister said.

Part of their plan is also enforcing measures for illegal or undocumented workers in Malaysia. Foreign workers without legal work documents or those who overstayed in the country will be arrested and deported back to their home country. 


"Those existing foreign workers, especially whose working permits have expired or are without proper document, they are not allowed to work in Malaysia," Zahid said after a function to meet army personnel at Camp Muara Tuang.

However the Malaysian manufacturers are urging the government to clarify how long they are planning to freeze the hiring.

The Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM) hopes that the issue can be resolved soon to avoid deleterious effect on the economy.
