The Outpatient Consultation and Diagnostic Package (OPB) was designed and launched by PhilHealth in 2000 and comprises diagnostic, preventive and curative services for indigent families enrolled in the Sponsored Program. Currently premiums are financed by Local Government Units and the National Government, whilst services are typically delivered through Rural Health Units (RHU). Modol (2008) noted that no targets where set on the quantity of services to be provided during OPB design. Similarly, no calculations were made on the adequacy of the capitation fund.
