PhilCare ER Vantage 80 – Aiming to help the Filipinos cope up with the continuous annual premium increase in availing a basic health aid package, the HMO Philippines sector levelled-up their coverage of services by coming up with prepaid offers.
For any healthy individual, getting a health card with a huge annual premium becomes impractical. Considering the minimum premium of 1,000/month for a basic health coverage, an individual could spend around 12,000 annually per person. Today, PhilCare sets the pace for the industry not only with the reliable in-patient and outpatient health care it provides, but also with the total wellness and healthy living it actively promotes—in an affordable manner.
When I was working full-time as a financial consultant in a BPO firm, paying for my childrens’ health insurance premium every payout was really a burden on my pocket.
But I had no choice thinking that any emergency sickness or hospitalization will give more strain and impact the family’s budget.
Thanks to one of the leaders in HMO Philippines, PhilCare revolutionized their health aid products by coming up with prepaid emergency cards.
Just what I needed right?
Yeah, with PhilCare’s ER Vantage cards, I will not only save Php 2,000 monthly (that’s 24,000 annually compare to 1,300 x2 one-time payment!!) but will also free myself from the worries of unexpected expenses from any sudden sickness or hospitalization.
It’s so easy to purchase and I simply did it online. I just visited PhilCare’s official website and checked the ER Vantage card options. It’s their contribution to meet the healthy Filipino’s changing needs. PhilCare understands that being healthy means more than not getting sick; it also means getting you and your family prepared for any emergency.
With prices ranging from P900 to P1,300, individuals 6 months to 64 years old can avail of the benefits of ER Vantage. Upon text registration, the card will be activated within a 7-day period. The benefit of the card runs for an entire year where the registered can avail of the emergency hospitalization at any of PhilCare’s affiliate hospitals and clinics nationwide.
ER Vantage health cards come in three variants that individuals can choose from depending on their preferences and needs. For a one-time payment of P900, P1,100, or P1,300, users can avail of P40,000.00 up to P80,000.00 worth of emergency hospitalization expenses.
