You have MediCard – Why worry?: 7 Reasons why Medicard is one of the strongest HMOs in the Philippines

I and my wife have been a freelancers for quite some time and honestly, we have earned more compared to working at full-time jobs. But recently, we both agreed that one of the things we miss out on is the benefits of having a health card. Having one provides more security for me and my wife especially because health issues are always unpredictable.

Three years ago, my wife and I planned a trip to Boracay for my birthday and, unexpectedly, my son got sick and became hospitalized. We had to cancel our trip. We had no choice because, bottom line, family and their health comes first. Its implications - we were not able to use the plane fare to Boracay and the accommodation arrangements for the trip. Plus, we had to pay the hospital bills.

Back then, we could have really used some health care service like MediCard. If we didn't have any second thoughts we would have availed of it back then, especially for our son.

I know that there are many health care service providers available but among them, Medicard is one of the strongest in the industry.

7 Reasons why Medicard is one of the strongest HMOs in the Philippines:

1. MediCard is one of the companies that led the way in the Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) industry, founded in May, 1987.

2. It is one of the founding members of Association of Health Maintenance Organizations of the Philippines. AHMOPI is the recognized trade association of Health Maintenance Organization (HMOs) in the Philippines. 

3. Medicard is the only HMO that is run and founded by doctors.

4. It also has more than 40,000 accredited doctors, specialists and dentists in about 1,000 accredited hospitals and clinics throughout the Philippines.

5. It is the first HMO awarded with ISO certification in the Asia Pacific Region. This, in itself, says a lot about the quality of this HMO.

MediCard is international

6. Medicard offers a comprehensive healthcare coverage to its members from hospitalization, outpatient, preventive, emergency, member’s financial assistance and dental services.

7. This HMO is 28 years strong. In fact, they will be celebrating their 28th year in the industry this coming May.

With these credentials, MediCard members feel secure because their health is under the guardianship of the strongest in the industry. So, if you have MediCard, why worry?
