PhilHealth issued Circular No. 03 in January this year to strengthen and improve the enforcement of the "NBB" policy, which guarantees qualified members that they will no longer have to pay any amount beyond what PhilHealth pays for when admitted in ward-type accommodation in government hospitals.
The policy is pursuant to Section 43 of the Implementing Rules and Regulation of Republic Act No. 10606 (National Health Insurance Act of 2013) which states that, "No other fee or expense shall be charged to the indigent patient, subject to the guidelines issued by the Corporation. All necessary services and complete quality care to attain the best possible health outcomes shall be provided to them".


For 2017,  a proposed budget of P3.35-trillion shall cover the healthcare and tuition fee of state universities or colleges in Philippines. According to Sen. Loren Legarda, there is also additional P3 billion allocated to Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) for the coverage of all Filipinos

They will no longer be required to pay  for anything in government hospitals under the “No Balance Billing” as mandated under the Amended National Health Insurance Act or Republic Act 10606, which Legarda principally authored.   Close Ad X The budget will also allocate P96.336 billion for Department Of Health, this will then be used  for the construction of additional health facilities and drug rehabilitation centers in the country.    The Filipino citizens who will be covered under this provision, through a POINT of Service (POS) Program, must be classified as financially incapable to pay his/her Philhealth membership according to the DOH classification on indigence.
