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.
