Philhealth Group Membership for Health Sciences students

Dr. Alain Patrick Azanza, CatSU SUC President III, met with PhilHealth Local Health Insurance Office Catanduanes headed by Maria Zaila B. Romero, PHD to clarify and discuss matters on the enrollment of CatSU College of Health Sciences students under the Group Enrollment Program (GEP) of PhilHeath. Under GEP, the University will subsidize 50% of the premium funded from the Student Development Fund while only the remaining 50% will be shouldered by the students. 

Mr. Ferdinand Brizo, Social Insurance Officer II of Philhealth Catanduanes discussed that the premium payment can either be paid quarterly, semi annually or annually.  PhilHealth premiums are ₱ 3,600 annually, ₱900 per quarter. 

It was agreed upon by the body that the mode of payment for the Philhealth premium be settled on quarterly basis to be remitted on the first month of respective quarter for benefit eligibility of the students in these difficult times. 

According to Ms. Hannah Eden Santos, CHS SBO President, there are 198 students aged 21 and above, and 77 CHS students who will be 21 years old by the incoming quarter.

President Azanza said that  the 198 students are to be enrolled and the other 77 students will be included in the masterlist once they turn 21 years old, since they can still avail PhilHealth benefits as a qualified dependent by their parents who are active members of PhilHealth. 

Dr. Azanza told the College of Health Sciences Student Body Organization to verify and submit a masterlist of CHS students with their pertinent information to be validated by PhilHealth.

PhilHealth acknowledged the efforts and support of CatSu President Azanza to these nursing students molded by CatSU as future frontliners in the medical profession.

Present during the meeting were Philhealth Officers Maria Zaila B. Romero, PH. D., Chief Local health Insurance Officer, Leony Paz E. Austero, Ferdinand M. Brizo, Social Insurance Officer II, and CatSU key officials, Hon. Renz Mickenly T. Tanael, Student Regent, Janet B. Lim, Dean of CHS, Finance Officer Mr. Alfredo P. Cilot, Mr. Rommel Torres, University Accountant, and Atty. Nikko Rey Aicetel M. Santelices, Legal Officer. They were also joined by Solenn Angeleigh P. Tresmanio, CHS SBO Secretary, and Joyce Gonzales, CHS-SBO PIO.  #cvecilles
