No to Philhealth premium Increase! Scrap Circular No.022!
The Philippine Health Insurance Corporation or Philhealth Board recently issued Circular No.022 imposing a 150% hike in health premiums of OFWs from the current P900 to become P2,400.
The hike in OFWs health insurance premium will not only bleed us (OFWs and dependents) dry, it also sucks out our blood leading ‘to death due to deprivation of free and affordable social services’. The government through various agencies is killing us so softly by imposing additional fees in pretense of better social services.
By all legal and extra-legal means allowed by law, We, OFWs and dependents, must support the campaign against Philhealth premium hike, and expose and oppose this ‘unhealthy money-making scheme’ by the Philhealth.
We kick off this signature drive, on paper and on-line, to gather the support of as many OFWs and their families.
We are targeting 1-M signature by July 2012, the supposed start of imposing Philhealth premium of P2,400 from the current P900. With our position paper, we will send the signatures to Pres. Aquino and to the Philhealth Board members, members of the Senate and House of Representatives.
We appeal to all our fellow OFWs, their dependents, friends and OFW advocates to join us in our campaign by signing this petition and help pass it on to others and urge them to do the same.
No to Philhealth insurance premium hike!
