Saw this pic on the back of a taxi today.  Don't know quite what to make of it but it looks like Philhealth is planning some kind of change come October.

The current standard in order to avail benefits is making at least 3 monthly payments in the 6 months preceding the hospitalization.  Effective October 1, it is 9 payments in the preceding 12 months before hospitalization.  They are warning the public to be caught up on their payments in order to meet the more stringent 9/12 requirement.  There are some exceptions for new members and other situations.

It was supposed to be effective Jan. 1 but was pushed to Oct. 1 to allow more time for adjustments.
