So, the hubby and I have finally gotten hold of health insurance through the initiative of our labor union last November 2018. The money used to pay for the health insurance came from us (read: our CNA bonus) but because we got enrolled under a corporate account, we received discounts and added privileges. I don’t remember the exact annual premium anymore but it’s just under PhP11,000 per head. I personally think it’s the best deal for us at this time, coverage and price wise.
It was one of those weekends when we weren’t able to visit our Bacoor home and instead, got stuck in Manila to do stuff. Our Saturday was spent with friends while our Sunday was filled with household chores. Haha.
I learned about PhilCare through one of the blogs I read regularly. They offer a list of health services and have several clinics in Metro Manila. My Superf Nice, my good friend Carmela and I availed of their Women’s Health card at P670. (Even if we have our respective Ob-Gyne’s, we thought of trying out PhilCare for experience and to save money.) You see, the card covers three services (one-time use only): Ob-Gyne consultation, pap smear and breast or transvaginal ultrasound. If we were to pay for these services individually, it would set us back at least P2,000. Laking tipid, diba?
