The National Confederation of Cooperatives (NATCCO), an umbrella organization of consumers, credit and marketing cooperatives and Gawad Kalinga have enlisted their individual members to the program. We have given recognition to the Integrated Cooperative Towards Unified Services (ICTUS) and the Alternative Network Resources Unlimited Multi-Purpose Cooperative and South Cotabato Foundation, Inc., all in PhilHealth Regional Office XII in Mindanao, for joining our cause.
Also in early 2009, PhilHealth granted a 35 percent aggregate increase in our benefit ceilings without any rate increase in premium contribution. This increase is unparalleled, compared to any other government service agency, in PhilHealth history, or even to its predecessor, the Medicare Program. Furthermore, the increase in benefit ceilings was coupled by a series of benefit package extensions with great impact to our members.
