Unlimited Medical and Dental Consultation Cards from Philcare
Of all the things someone should care about, health is what I’m most particular with. When I got married I processed all the necessary documents immediately–for my son and I to acquire a health card under my husband’s employee benefit. Back then, when I was still single, I see to it that both of my parents were my dependents and has health cards.
Because I am for peace of mind, needless to say, I am an avid availer of products that offers peace of mind such as insurance plans, health cards, life plans and whatnot.
Now that I’m married and not working, I cannot apply them as my dependents. Not to worry though because my brother have it covered. He’s single and he enrolled them as his dependents.
But for similar cases like mine, you can independently enroll your loved ones of health cards isn’t it? Yes, there were number of health card providers out in the market but PhilCare is my personal favorite. With their line of products, I felt the geniune concern for Filipino families. I felt their desire to really help by making their products affordable to many.
In 2014 PhilCare commissioned the PhilCare Wellness Index where more than 1,200 Filipinos nationwide were asked about their views on health and their well-being. The first of its kind in the Philippines, the study provided PhilCare with an in-depth look on how Filipinos approach health and wellness. A lot of surprising health truths were uncovered with this study including: Filipinos tend to think only about their health when they are sick and more often than not, have a strong tendency to self-medicate during times of illness.
In spite the fact that 59% of Filipinos have access to doctors, majority – or 74 percent—still choose to self medicate than consult a doctor. What makes this alarming is that Filipinos view on health is often on the “curative” and not preventive. Meaning, they will only consult or see a doctor when they are already sick. For others, it’s the high cost of consultation that prevents them from seeing a doctor upon on-set of illness.
PhilCare is addressing this situation with the introduction of its Unlimited Medical and Dental Consultation cards which allows its holder to avail of consultation services for 12 months from its nationwide network of PhilCare-designated affiliated doctors.
