The Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth)has issued a warning to its members, especially the Overseas Filipino Workers, against fake official receipts for premium contribution payments circulating in various parts of the country.
Reports have come to the attention of PhilHealth that a number of recruitment agencies are issuing falsified PhilHealth Official Receipts (PORs) to OFWs as part of their document processing.
This discovery has prompted the state-run health insurer to issue a series of advisories reminding the public to be vigilant about the proliferation of the fake PORs.
Likewise, PhilHealth called on its OFW members to be more vigilant and be watchful of persons or establishments issuing such fake receipts when paying their premium contributions as these may result that their PhilHealth benefits may not be availed.
The PhilHealth management in coordination with the POEA and other concerned offices is currently working to further intensify the campaign against agencies committing such illegal acts.
If you already a Philhealth member and you are not sure about who are your listed dependents,we are going to provide you the information on how to check your listed beneficiaries and dependents in the comfort of your home.
