Tricare And Cebu Hospitals

10 posts in this topic

ALCON,

I was just informed that Cebu Doctors Hospital and Chung Hua Hospital are among those now on the off limits list for TRICARE. My Source is: http://tpaoweb.oki.med.navy.mil/ click on the "hot news" link.

 

For those of you retired US Military, I have two questions for you:

 

1. Are you aware of these changes?

2. What are you doing for health care for you and your families in Cebu?

 

Putting the 2 best hospitals in Cebu on a TRICARE banned list is bad. What are you guys on the ground in Cebu hearing?

 

Have a good'un!!

Redneck! :cool_01:

Larry, I'm sure many retirees aren't aware of this problem but the powers that be are and they're working on it. As far as what am I doing for health care? Well it's out of pocket for now if needed! And if I get any updates on the situation I'll post them here.

 

Terp

Yea, we can thank the crooks of former Health Visions for screwing it up for all military retirees.

 

There are people working on fixing the problem but don't expect any miracles. The next time you see someone formerly associated with Health Visions, walk up and knock the dog crap out of them.

 

...and who says Americans cannot be just as corrupt as the next guy? :wt-hell:

Those Americans who sold this Health Visions scam to us are in hiding if they're smart.

Are any local EXPATS using any insurance plans for you and your families like Blue Cross Philippines?

If I may ask, what happened? Was it a scam insurance program?

I saw something about it before. I don't know all the details but they were overcharging the u s government and waiving the payment of co-pays for recipiants which is not allowed. I know there is more to it but I don't have all the details.

ALCON,

It seems that the contractor that handles Tricare did this without the approval of DOD. Follow the original link and you will see that most of the Major Hospitals in in CEBU are of the list and approved for TRICARE once again.

      Ive tried looking on the web, but no luck so im asking you guys:
      Has anyone been to Kawasan falls over the last week? 
      Or at this time last year? maybe not as helpful..
      I'm planning on taking the missus, and her brother and his missus on Saturday
      Keen to know if anyone has any idea about the water situation at the moment?
      Here in Toledo its been very dry the last 2 weeks, (YAY i can get in and out of our village without driving under a river) but im not sure this matters at all when considering kawasan falls.
      I guess year on year stats are irrelevant also as weather here is so unpredictable and there are no yearly weather patterns.
      I havent been there in 2 years, and this will be my 4th trip. I never get tired of that place. I dont care how many people are there, its beautiful and should be shared.

      Remember!
      Foreigners living in the Philippines can get Philippines, also single with tourist visas.
      The requirement is that you are "permanent tourist", in other words that you live here . This can be proved by lease contracts and stamp in your passport.

      But when I signed up, I used only my passport and ID card from BI (ACR).
      This had to be copied and submit with my application (PhilHealth Member Registration Form).
      Then I paid for 6 months, 900 pesos.(150 per month now)
      Everything took about 40 minutes.

      Joker and Harley Quinn love nothing more than creating havoc for Batman. But when their alone… they turn into a couple… just like everyone else. Yeah, Joker and Harley might act all tough but they bicker. Oh they bicker.

      Im hoping this is the right subforum for this.
      I'm looking for feedback from those who have been here a while and are used to Cebuano people, particularly services like vehicle maintenance and home maintenance. Im starting to get very, and visually, frustrated with the brains in some of the locals, not just so called mechanics.
      A neighbour has seen that i am always testing electrical things with my multimeter in my jeep and on my brother in laws little motor. Today my GF said, to me, BABY THEY WANT TO USE YOUR TESTER!!!
      So i love to help, and i went over to the guys who were standing around the crappy RUSSI motor and they pointed at the ignition module. as if to say, TEST IT! Now, i have no idea how to test this, but i thought, rather than saying NO, i will check other things, like how many volts are going to it. 
      5 Volts. This is a 12 volt battery putting out 5 volts,, its fecked.
      So i said, BAGO BATTERY.. OR CHARGE.
      But then i asked them to turn the ignition on, and they pointed at the ignition wiring harness which had all been taped together, so that everything is constantly powered ON.
      This infuriates me with rage, as it is now so impossible to explain to them how incredibly stupid this is, as it is on a completely different level of stupidity than I've ever had to deal with, and my bodies internal fuse for dealing with things diplomatically, just exploded.
      I walked away. They are beyond assistance, at least with my Bisaya vocabulary.
      Now i think about it, they may possibly believe that if the motor isn't running (after being kickstarted) that it isn't using the battery.

      And my question is, am i justified in feeling so god damn angry that i cant have an intellectual conversation here?
      Or am i being a cockhead?
