Would like to inquire what/how much are the benefits/rates I can get for the outpatient surgery from PhilHealth.
Surgeon, anesthesiologist, actual procedure, OR, etc.
I may need to undergo arthroscopic surgery.
We cannot give you the actual amount that you will receive from PhilHealth since it varies depending on a number of factors. However, you may use the benefit table here http://www.philhealth.gov.ph/forms/others/lifetime_benefits.pdf to compute for the approximate amount. Same PhilHealth benefits are being provided for all member categories.
Hope this helps.
How about if I can be reimbursed even if the hospital is not yet accredited?
I read in the site:
What if the hospital is not accredited? Will I still get paid?
Claims of members confined in non-accredited hospitals shall not be compensated unless all of the following conditions are met:
Case is emergency as determined by PhilHealth
The hospital or facility has a current DOH license
Physical transfer/referral to an accredited facility is impossible as determined by PhilHealth.
The hospital PGH FMAB is still undergoing the Philhealth accreditation. Will I still be reimbursed even if they are not yet accredited?
If the hospital or doctor is not accredited PhilHealth may not reimburse the doctor's fee or the hospital charges. You can try to call the PhilHealth Office or call center for the status of the accreditation of your hospital or doctor. If you are to call the PhilHealth Office, directly look for the accreditation department and inquire the new accreditation period of your hospital. Moreover, if the hospital/doctor has submitted all required documents and PhilHealth approves the renewal, the start date of the accreditation period will be the date of submission of the document or the expiry date and since filing of the renewal application is before the expiration of the accreditation period, there is a chance of continuity of the accreditation and if this happens then you will be paid for hospital charges or professional fees.
