CITY OF MALOLOS-Governor Wilhemino M. Sy-Alvarado will distribute more or less 60,000 PhilHealth cards to the Bulakenyos until the end of October this year for the PhilHealth MOVES project of President Benigno Simeon Aquino III.

PhilHealth MOVES or Mobile Orientation, Validation and Enrollment Scheme is part of President Aquino’s health agenda which is to provide universal health coverage.

According to PhilHealth Regional Office 3 B Branch Manager Dr. Roberto Reyes, PhilHealth MOVES was launched to ensure the distribution of PhilHealth Number Cards directly to the member or recipients identified through the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction of the Department of Social Welfare and Development.

“Orientation on National Health Insurance Program benefits, availment procedures and eligibility requirements and other related matters will also be provided to the recipients sapagkat talagang napaka-importanteng malaman ng ating mga miyembro ang mga benepisyong hatid ng PhilHealth,” Reyes added.

Yesterday, Alvarado and PhilHealth distributed approximately 5,000 cards to 5,000 families in San Miguel, Bulacan.

Since the first week of October, PhilHealth had distributed more or less 30,000 cards in Bulacan.

“Ako ay nagagalak at nagpapasalamat sa tulong na ibinigay ng ating mahal na Pangulong Aquino sa pamamagitan ng PhilHealth cards. Sapagkat isang katotohanan na ang kalusugan ay kayamanan kaya naman sa mga hindi inaasahang pagkakataon ng pagkakasakit, upang lapatan ng pangmatagalang tulong pangkalusugan ay ibinigay ng pangulo ang nasbaing helath insurance sa mga Bulakenyong kapus-palad,” Alvarado said.

Meanwhile, the said health insurance company had a media launch of its first ever nationwide running event dubbed as “PhilHealth Run 2013: Nationwide Run for Mother and Child Protection” yesterday morning at the Sen. Benigno Aquino Jr. Session Hall at the Capitol building.

On February 17, 2013, the said nationwide run will be held simultaneously in 18 provinces and cities inviting around 180,000 participant-runners to raise money for Mother and Child Protection.

The distribution of PhilHealth cards is a joint effort and cooperation of PhilHealth, Provincial Government of Bulacan, Department of Health, Department of Interior and Local Government, Social Welfare and Development and local government units in Bulacan. ###
