Philhealth is now accepting applications for Philhealth CARES nurses program.
Philhealth CARES or Customer Assistance, Relations and Empowerment Staff nurses will be deployed to government hospitals to facilitate benefits availment of Philhealth members and also help the hospitals in facilitating the documentary requirements and significantly reduce the number of Return-to-Hospital (RTH) claims, which affects the processing time of claims.
Dr. Eduardo P. Banzon, PhilHealth President and CEO said that “the launch of PhilHealth CARES will definitely improve our front line service, with PhilHealth personnel assisting them at point-of- service which is the hospital. Availment of benefits will be easier and more convenient. They may also assist non-members and encourage them to enroll in the National Health Insurance Program.”
Philhealth CARES nurses deployment
On initial hiring, 334 Philhealth CARES nurses will be deployed to Levels 3 and 4 government hospitals, and around 196 more will be deployed to Levels 1 and 2 hospitals.
Deployment of Philhealth Cares nurses will start in March, once the recruitment and training processes have been completed. It will run for 6 months but may be renewed until end-2012.
