Medicard Is One of the Strongest HMOs in the PH

Remember the old adage “Health is wealth.” I am telling you, this is so true.  Even if you have a lot of money today, there might come a time that you will lose all your savings just to pay for your hospitalization bills. Most of us, young Pinoys, have this belief that sickness only befalls the weak and old, tama ba (right)? Well, most of us make the mistake of thinking we don’t need to worry about health care because we’re young and healthy.

In fact, there are those who would spend all there savings on the latest gadgets or on cellphone loads rather than get a health plan, right again? Ha ha ha! Bulls eye! 

Most of us don’t realize that in life, I am not asking for it but in reality, whether you admit it or not, there are a number of unexpected events: vehicular and sporting accidents, trauma cases, milk tea poisoning, even dog bites that need equal attention and importance.

I learned this lesson the hard way. As you know, I am a ruptured brain aneurysm survivor. I could have used some health care service like MEDICard when I was admitted in the hospital and when I underwent an operation. I am speaking from my true experience. Stressed ka na sa sakit mo, stressed ka pa sa kahahanap ng ipangbabayad mo sa ospital. Coiling and stent operation plus the hospital room fee, surgeon professional fee and other add-ons plus physical therapy, medicines, check-ups and other treatments thereafter left me with an almost empty coffer.  Why ? Because I did not prepare for those events. I should have gotten myself an insurance combo to protect me in times of need.

My brother who happened to be my mentor said that stress might be impossible to avoid in this crazy world but there are ways to manage it and feel more relaxed to maintain our balance within. These include organizing our daily schedules, getting a life insurance and HMO, simplifying our activities and eliminating unnecessary commitments. Exercising, eating healthy and staying in a relaxing environment can also put our mind at ease. We also need to nurture optimism and tolerance to not get easily upset by unfavorable situations and difficult people.
I decided to move on since nothing will happen if I’ll just be think negatively about it.  After all, the year is still young and perfect for a fresh start.  It is a good idea to work on improving my health and well-being. I am currently shopping for the perfect HMO which could jive with my medical needs in the future. There are so many health cards in the market today. And choosing for the reliable one will cause stress in itself. 

After interviewing and comparing various health cards, I came up with several reasons why MediCard members feel secure that their health is cared for by one of the strongest in the industry.

1. Medicard is the pioneer in HMO industry. It is turning 28 in the month of May this year. No wonder, people trust them 100%.
