OFWs warned over fake PhilHealth receipts

The Philippine Health Insurance Corp. yesterday warned Overseas Filipino Workers against fake official receipts for premium contribution payments which are reportedly circulating in various parts of the country.

“Reports have reached PhilHealth that a number of recruitment agencies are issuing counterfeit PhilHealth Official Receipts to OFWs as part of their document processing,” the PhilHealth disclosed yesterday in a statement.

This prompted the State-run health insurance company to issue a series of advisories reminding the public to be vigilant about the proliferation of the fake PORs.

“Only PhilHealth Regional and Local Health Insurance Offices are authorized to issue the POR,” the PhilHealth noted.

The PhilHealth told OFWs “to be more cautious and be watchful of persons or establishments issuing such counterfeit receipts when paying their premium contributions as these may result to non-availment of their PhilHealth benefits.” (Charina Clarisse L. Echaluce)
