PhilHealth No Balance Billing (NBB) Policy for Sponsored Program Members Admitted in Government Hospitals
Sponsored Program members refer to indigent families whose enrolment into the National Health Insurance Program (NHIP) is made possible through the sponsorship of the local government units, private companies and individuals. Also included under the Sponsored Program are families listed under the National Household Targetting System for Poverty Reduction of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) whose annual premium has been paid for by the National Government.
Accredited government hospitals must refer to the validity period stated in the Sponsored Program member‘s ID card to ascertain that availment of benefits is within the said validity period.
The NBB policy also applies when the Sponsored Program members avail themselves of outpatient surgeries, hemodialysis and radiotherapy in accredited non-hospital facilities that includes free-standing dialysis centers (FSDCs) and ambulatory surgical clinics (ASCs). It also applies when they are availing themselves of our existing outpatient packages for TB-DOTS, Malaria and HIV/AIDS.
At the same time, all other member-types are entitled to the NBB policy when availing themselves of the Maternity Care Package (MCP) and the Newborn Care Package (NCP) in accredited MCP (non-hospital) providers.
