0 618

Odiongan Mayor Trina Firmalo Fabic recently met with a regional officer of the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation to discuss the coverage of local government employees.

“Nakipag pulong tayo last November kay Philhealth Regional Vice-President Jerry Ibay kasama si sir Leandro Flores ng Philhealth Romblon,” said Fabic.

“May mga pinag-usapan kami kung paano mas magkaroon ng coverage o mas maraming tao na may Philhealth sa Odiongan,” she added.

The mayor said that the meeting was fruitful as more workers will be granted PhilHealth coverage.

“Ang pagbibigay ng Philhealth membership sa 125 na barangay officials ay unang hakbang pa lamang,” said the mayor.

“Simula din ng Enero 2022, magkakaroon kami ng sharing arrangement sa mga Job Order o casual employees ng munisipyo para magkaroon sila ng Philhealth coverage,” she added.

Fabic continued: “Mahalaga na ang ating mga frontliners at ang kanilang mga pamilya ay protektado para magampanan nila ng mas mabuti ang kanilang trabaho ngayong panahon ng pandemya.”
