As if things weren’t bad enough, the household consumption health expenditure in 2020 was valued at approximately P548 billion, marking an increase of 320.28% from 2019’s P171.1 billion.
Knowing these stats, how do you protect yourself? How do you adapt and cope with the uncertainties that lie ahead?
Given the operative nature of our country’s healthcare system, the government works hand-in-hand with the private sector.  However, even with the existence of government-mandated benefits such as Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) and health maintenance organizations (HMO), 37% of Filipinos are still paying medical expenses out of their savings
Being an employee, your health is of utmost importance. In an unprecedented time like this, you might want to consider the option of getting additional health insurance. In addition to shielding you from spending your hard earned money, it also provides an extra layer of protection and assurance to your loved ones in the event that something happens.
Uploan currently offers a COVID Defense Cover (CDC), the first in the Philippines, which is a 3-month coverage insurance plan. It has been established to provide financial assistance upon COVID-19 diagnosis. Furthermore, it’s an insurance product specified for COVID-19 cases such as confirmed positive cases and death due to coronavirus diseases. If your employer has partnered up with Uploan, you can even get it for FREE. No additional fees, no hidden charges, just follow a few easy steps and you’re good to go.
As we continue dealing with COVID-19 and given the vaccination efforts from both the government and private sectors, in which only 0.9% of the population has been fully vaccinated, it’s always better to stay safe and protected through health insurance.
