Increase Philhealth-covered Hemodialysis Sessions to 156 per year

0 have signed. Let’s get to 300,000!


There are 52 weeks per year and at 3 hemodialysis sessions per week, that's a total of 156 sessions per year.

Currently, Philhealth subsidizes 90 sessions per year. After which, the patient needs to fund his continuing sessions for the rest of the year. That's  about 184,000 pesos (66 additional sessions x 2,800 per).

With all the additional medicinal requirements whicwhen followed costs over 25,000 pesos per month, paying for the hemodialysis sessions (ave 2,800 per session) is more than a middle class person can afford. More so for the indigent members of our community.

Rather than just  government hospitals, we petition that all Philheath-accredited hospitals and dialysis centers be included and instead of free, limit it to 156 sessions per year which covers 3 sessions per week for 52 weeks. 

Lastly, we petition that the erythropoietin injections be included in the coverage if possible as the price of the injection range from 650.00 to 2,200.00 and this is needed per session so 156 per year.

We have designed a flyer which can be downloaded, printed, and posted on each of your dialysis centers so all the patients and their family and friends can signup too.
