The Philippines celebrates National Children’s Month in November in every year. This celebration focuses on the need to provide Filipino children access to a healthy environment, good education, and healthcare. Children are susceptible to illnesses and injuries. If not prevented or given the proper treatment, their growth and development may be compromised.
In observance of the National Children’s Month this November, MediCard, a leading Health and Maintenance Organization (HMO) in the Philippines, reinforces this year’s theme “Kalusugan, Kaisipan, at Kapakanan ng Bawat Bata Ating Tutukan.” The company is one with the country in emphasizing the need for parents to provide their kids with the proper care, encompassing the importance of getting them the right HMO coverage that would help monitor their overall health and prevent, detect, or treat severe conditions.
With a healthcare plan, children will have access to preventive healthcare services, annual physical examinations (APE), and immunizations to help combat severe illnesses during childhood, such as polio, pneumonia, meningitis, influenza, tetanus, tuberculosis, hepatitis B, and many more.
For a perfect and comprehensive package for your whole family (including your kids), MediCard offers Individual and Family plans that cover all these healthcare services at a starting rate of PhP10,739 per year. Start maintaining your children's health by following the plan's hierarchy policy so they can be eligible for coverage.
Additionally, you do not have to worry about the expenses for your kids’ in-patient care. Depending on a child’s diagnosis and plan, this can cover X-ray and laboratory examinations, operating and recovery room expenses, and the services of MediCard doctors, including anesthesiologists, internists, surgeons, and many more.
For their outpatient care, on the other hand, you can have access to medical providers at any MediCard free-standing clinics or MediCard-accredited clinics or hospitals nationwide. Conditional to your child’s plan, this can also cover laboratory or diagnostic examinations ordered by a MediCard doctor, regular consultations, and specialist referrals.
Other benefits of this coverage include diets and health habits counseling and health management. On top of that, you can also take care of your kids’ oral health as you can avail of dental care services from any accredited dental clinic. This includes simple tooth extraction, oral prophylaxis, temporary fillings, and treatment of mouth lesions, wounds, and burns.
