Having had my bouts (family and otherwise) share of medical emergencies, I really need to assess the medical insurance policies that my family have. It was quite frustrating that when I was hospitalized a few months back, none of my hospital, doctor and drug fees were covered by the insurance policy. The insurance company stipulates that a pre-existing condition was not covered because my membership was short of a week before my first year membership. Yeah. I got zero in my insurance policy. The Philhealth insurance policy, government issued, paid a measly 3,700 Pesos in the more then 50K bill.

In the US, Medicare policies can be complemented with a Medicare supplement insurance. This add on policy fill in the gaps that are not covered in the original medicare policy. This policy could lessen the monthly bills in medicare advantage insurance policies for the same services. I better tell my brother about this option. He said he's paying a load of money for his family's health insurance.

  1. Hi, Te Lena! Thanks for dropping by!

    How was the storm there in your place? Binaha kayo? My parents' house got flooded! I hope everybody in your family are ok, especially your Son who lives in QC.

    And I hope your Mother-in-Law is feeling better by now.

    Take care always!

  2. Kamusta ang sitwasyon nyo dyan? Kakatakot naman yung video ng baha na nakita ko sa inquirer. It was taken sa UERM ata. It showed cars being swept away by the raging water.

    Ok lang ba kayo dyan?


  3. Hi

    Dropping by to ask for your prayers and support for the Flood Victims of Typhoon Ondoy that just hit the Philippines, Metro Manila. I was very fortunate that my apartment has been spared from the major flooding but many have died and many more need to be rescued. Drop by over at empty streets to find out how you can also support those that have been hit by this tragedy.
