June 25, 2011 is designated as the Second Nationwide PhilHealth Registration Day. PhilHealth Regional Office 1 (PhRO 1) will be conducting the event at seven selected sites at the following municipalities:
· Bacarra, Ilocos Norte
· Magsingal, Ilocos Sur
· Aringay, La Union
· Urdaneta City, Pangasinan
· Lingayen, Pangasinan
· Dagupan City
· San Carlos City, Pangasinan
The main objective of this activity is to ensure that eligible family members of public school students especially those classified as indigents should enroll and take advantage of PhilHealth benefits. This also aims to encourage other eligible individuals to register in the Individually-Paying Program (IPP), to educate members about the benefits, rights and responsibilities of being a member and to enjoin partners in mobilizing resources and ensuring universal health care coverage.
Department of Health (DOH) will spearhead the event and will be participated by other government agencies such as PhilHealth, Department of Education (DepEd), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) and Leagues of Provinces, Cities, Municipalities and Barangays. It can be recalled that through the collective efforts of the above-mentioned agencies, PhilHealth Sabado kick-off activity had been successfully conducted last October 2, 2010.
Eligible family members of public school pupils, PhilHealth Non-Members, Government and non-government stakeholders are invited to attend the said activity to gain access to an affordable and accessible quality health care for all Filipinos.
