eric baluya started this petition to Rodrigo Roa Duterte and

Universal Healthcare Act is good step to bringing healthcare to everybody. Philhealth funds over the years have been depleted due to inefficient process and marred by corruption and controversy. We demand transparency on the expenses of Philhealth over the years to justify the exorbitant increase. Until all of this are cleared up, we seek fairness in the setting of premium for all. 

Here are our demands to be changes in Republic Act No. 11223 and its IRR

  • Change premium hike to 3% and 50,000 ceiling limit to all direct contributors
  • Self-employed and professionals to pay only 1.5% premium with same ceiling
  • OFW to pay the minimum premium on voluntary basis and not linked to OEC

The proposed premium hike is repressive to all stakeholders of Philhealth and unjustified. Especially when only a portion of your health bill is covered in reality which is different from the „no-billing“ provision. We, the healthy members of the society are willing to contribute but not to the detriment of our financial health.

We wholeheartedly support the Universal Healthcare Act and want it to succeed that is the reason we are pushing for this amended to make it work.
