The Philippine Health Insurance (PhilHealth) regional office 9 has opened a portal intended for PhilHealth accredited health care professionals for improved access to information.

This is in compliance with PhilHealth circular 2017-0032 which mandates the establishment of   the PhilHealth Care Professional Portal.

Accredited Philhealth professionals will first have to register to be able to access the Philhealth portal

The portal will display the accreditation of the health care professional and track down claims of patients who have been served by the portal user.

The profile of the health care professional will also be shown including comments and complaints.

In the future the portal will also cover additional services such as electronic filling of accreditation applications, status of applications, and notifications and reminders.

PhilHealth Clerk 3, Philip E. Cataylo said that 928 PhilHealth accredited health care professionals will benefit from the opening of the portal.

These include doctors, dentists, and midwives who have been accredited by PhilHealth.

Before the opening of the portal,  these professionals will have to go to the office to follow-up their claims. Now, all they have to do is register and log-in. (RGAAGo)
