First, you don't get a refund. Philhealth paid 16k towards my total bill.

 

Second, cataract surgery is not elective by any means.

I had cataract surgery, namely exchanged lens in Cebu 5 years ago.

I can assure you I elected to have it done and it cost 16,000 pesos.

I'll ask a specific question.

 

My SO goes into a hospital in CDO and says to the doctor "I've had a sore throat for 6 months, What's wrong?"

He checks her over, asks her to get some blood tests and eventually gives a verdict of "you're OK"

 

Cost all up 1,500 pesos.

 

Can she claim that on Philhealth? Keep in mind that she elected to go to the doctor.

My left eye was 100% completely clouded - no vision whatsoever.

 

I guess I elected to be able to see again.

I think you're supposed to advise them about having Philhealth before the treatment/doctor visit.  Not sure if you can claim after?

I thought we were talking about Philhealth - the government insurance, and not Philcare, which according to their website is a private provider.

 

I pay as many bills as possible online.  BDO does not accept Philhealth online. In fact, of the 16 Davao BDO branches you can only pay your Philhealth at one of them.   I pay mine at the main branch of the Post Office.  I did see a Philhealth branch in SM by their Business Services but I did not ask them about making payments there.

The last time I tried looking for PhilHealth on-line with BPI's home on-line banking list of merchants, I didn't see PhilHealth listed. I don't think PhilCare is one in the same, but I'll check it out again just to be certain when I get a chance and not forget to check it out.

 - Where you guys make your or how you make your annual / monthly  payments?
Wu takes payments.  I pay about 6 months at a time.  I think they charge 8 pesos for a payment whether it's 1 month or 12.

"Bank of the Philippine Islands (e-pay)"

I just tried submitting my wife's Philhealth policy number on-line with BPI and it won't take! Used the numbers with dashes and without, still a no go! I'll call them and see what's up or go to our nearest branch after we return to the Philippines from our vacation.

Here's how it's listed on BPI's list of merchants - Philcare/Philhealthcare, Inc    Short name: PHCI
