HOW VIETNAM DEAL WITH CORONA VIRUS?
How does a nation with a minimal resources square up to a worldwide pandemic that has challenged both poor and rich countries?
How Vietnam have seemingly managed to get the outbreak under control?
These might be some of the questions that other countries battling with COVID-19 might have led to wonder.
While wealthy countries like the United States and Europe continue to grapple in mitigating the spread of the disease, Vietnam with much more limited resources was able to effectively deal with the pressing health crisis.
Anticipating the possible impacts of the pandemic, the country made some sort of preparations and implemented strict measures since January 25, 2020 right after the Lunar or TET Holiday and when the first few COVID-19 cases were confirmed from Wuhan China.
As a manner of preventing the spread of the virus, the Vietnamese government executed some bold anti-corona virus measures such as closing of schools and universities, locking down entertainment hubs, strict measures in the international airports, instituted travel bans to those who have visited affected areas in the wake of the corona virus outbreak,
placed suspected and confirmed COVID-19 patients under quarantine and tracking down anyone they might have come into contact with. By administering these effective measures, the country has won praises from the international community.
From the start, Vietnam has been apparently willing to sacrifice economic gain for the benefit of a healthy population and the strict measures as well as readiness have so far paid off
with 232 people successfully cured and with no records of death as of this writing. With limited medical resources, Vietnam has seemingly managed to get the outbreak under control.
It is indeed without a shade of doubt that Vietnam government has done a laudable job in combatting Covid-19 and in putting the lives of its citizens among other things. In that spirit, the government has been remarkably transparent in briskly addressing not just the medical but as well as the psychological crisis among the people.
In addition, the country has performed quite well in dealing with the crisis. In fact, Vietnam was one of the first nations to declare an epidemic and has been quick in its response, setting an example other nations would be wise to follow.
Vietnam, being a single-party state with large and well-organized military and security services was able to make quick decisions and legislate them promptly. And in addtion to that, they also have a strong culture of surveillance and people are obliged to inform the authorities if they suspect any illegal activity and anyone caught sharing fake news and misinformation about the corona virus will be liable to the authorities and as per the record, around 800 people have been fined so far for spreading fake news.
Moreover, People in Vietnam (both locals and foreigners) have also generally been more cooperative as opposed to the people of other countries when quarantined and isolated. People obey the rules considering that it is for the common good. No bashing, no violations, no discriminations.
Although Vietnam is still considered as a developing country, it has done a remarkable job in combatting the epidemic by putting the life and welfare of the people first and foremost. In that note, the government has been remarkably quick, sharp and commendable in addressing the crisis.
The government was stringent in fighting the pandemic and its people are fully aware of their personal accountabilities. And as a foreigner living and working here in Vietnam, I feel much safer here and I am very confident that Vietnam will definitely win its war against the unseen enemy.
The information and prevention steps from the Vietnamese government has successfully been implemented in a way that I think is worth emulating and undoubtedly an example for other countries to follow.

The POEA hereby informs the public that since the passage of Republic Act 11223, otherwise known as the Philippine Universal Health Care Act, the POEA Governing Board, a tripartite policymaking body with DOLE Secretary Silvestre H. Bello III as its Chairperson, has not passed a resolution that authorizes the POEA to require OFWs to pay Philhealth premium in their application for the issuance of OECs.
Matigas talaga si PhilHealth mga beshie :(

And so we are back on track..!
This is a new challenge. A new beginning.
We got this so Let's make it happen..!
May the 4th be with you..!
UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE (UHC) LAW (RA 11223)
What is UHC Law?
On February 20, 2019, the Universal Health Care (UHC) Bill was signed into law (Republic Act No. 11223) by President Rodrigo Duterte.
This law automatically lists all Filipino citizens in the National Health Insurance Programme (NHIP).Meaning to say, all Filipinos are covered regardless of their social status and nature of work.
For OFW's, the new directive covers all overseas Filipinos working and living abroad, including seafarers, Filipinos with dual citizenship, and even OFWs in distress or undocumented Filipinos.
What is the basis of the premium collection?
One of the highlights of this law that sparked controversy is the tiered payment computation scheme which gradually increases each year from 2019 to 2025 — 2.5% in 2019, 3% in 2020, 3.5% in 20201, 4% in 2022, 4.5% in 2023, 5% in 2024 and 2025.
The basis for this is the Republic Act 7875, as amended by RA 10606, also known as the National Health Insurance (NHI) Act of 2013, allows PhilHealth to collect up to five (5) percent of the employee's basic monthly salary.
And as part of the full implementation of the Universal Health Care (UHC) Law, the monthly PhilHealth contribution rate for employed members increased from 2.75% to 3% of the monthly basic salary since January 2020.
In addition, according to PhilHealth, the “premium of overseas Filipinos shall be computed based on their monthly income to be paid in Philippine peso equivalent”.
By 2021, the minimum stays the same, but the ceiling increases to Php70,000. It gradually increases by P10,000 each per year till the maximum of Php100,000 is reached by 2024 or 2025.
This means that if your monthly salary is Php60,000 per month, your monthly premium will be computed only against the Php60,000 ceiling — Php1,800 per month, or Php21,600 per year.
For those who are employed in the PHILIPPINES, the monthly premium will be shared equally between the employee and the employer.
Unfortunately, for OFW's they have to shoulder the entire 3% since their local insurance is not covered by their employers abroad. In other words, OFW's has to pay the full amount from their own pocket.
What happens if you miss your PhilHealth payment?
Members who have missed/unpaid premium contributions for a maximum period of three consecutive months but have established nine (9) consecutive months of premium payments prior to the unpaid period shall be allowed to retroactively pay within one (1) month following the unpaid.
Is there a penalty for late payment of PhilHealth?
Yes, and late payments for premium shall be computed with interests and/or surcharges.
The formula shall be: Interests and/or surcharges = Principal amount x 2% or Php200.00 whichever is higher, compounded monthly based on the number of months delayed.
Is Philhealth Premium payment mandatory for returning OFW's?
One of the provisions of the Universal Health Care Law states that OFWs headed to and leaving from the Philippines are mandated to pay for their PhilHealth premiums before the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) issues their Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC).
The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) shall ensure that land-based overseas Filipino workers, whether newly hired or returning (balik manggagawa), pay their PhilHealth premiums prior to issuance of the Overseas Employment Cetificate (OEC),” according to section 10.2.c of the Universal Health Care act.
PhilHealth is a tax-exempt government corporation under to the Department of Health (DOH) mandated to administer the National Health Insurance Program which provides health care services to all Philippine citizens so I guess it is not unfair for them to impose a penalty for delayed payment. Ang laki na ng binabayaran ng mga OFW's tapos may penalty pa?
At ngayon gigipitin pa ninyo sa pagkuha ng OEC para lang mabayaran ang contribution.
What the heck..!
It is so sad that they labeled OFW's as modern day heroes but they are penalized. This is an added burden for them and as a matter of fact this directive is plainly unfair and abusive.
Now, we appeal to the Philhealth to please do not add burdens to the OFW's and to stop using us as your Milking cows.
The imposed premium is just too excessive considering that some OFW's end up not utilizing Philhealth benefits while working abroad.
We understand that may mga exempted o libre sa pagbayad ng contribution gaya ng mga Members of the informal economy ,Orphans, abandoned children, Barangay health workers, nutrition scholars, barangay tanods, and other barangay workers and volunteers but please do not let the OFW's suffer para lang ma cover up ang mga expenses ninyo sa kanila.
To the Philhealth administration, is this your way of covering up the mess of the agency?
Remember the telltale signs that something was going wrong at the insurance corporation had been evident years ago when the Commission on Audit first tagged cases of ghost claims and padded receipts and other issues pertaining to the Philhealth fund?
Accordingly, insurance fraud, without saying, is one of the most rampant crimes worldwide. Unfortunately, in the Philippines, the fraud is not just rampant, but also cyclical.
Indeed, corruption is an abominable malaise in our society, but coupling this with an inefficient system, one that is under the control of the state is doubly lethal to a nation.
Good Luck Philippines..!
Laban mga OFW's..!
PHILHEALTH OR PHILWEALTH?
Why burden the already burdened Overseas Filipino?
The new law for healthcare is dubbed as a "new dawn." Frankly, it is more like a dark, ominous cloud over the horizon.
Here are the reasons why-
📌 The news about the 3% insurance increase is ill-timed. When most of the overseas Filipinos are forced to take unpaid leaves, salary cuts, and/or dismissals due to the novel coronavirus, news of this type, no matter the intention, will be received negatively. One does not add a layer of burden to a community that is already suffering.
📌 This is redundant and seen as unfair by many Filipinos. In Dubai, for example, it is MANDATORY for employers to provide health insurance coverage for their employees, and sponsors are required to get insurance for their dependents. We don’t need it. Why are we being charged for a “product” we don’t even use?
📌 PhilHealth is not the agency that Filipinos easily trust. So, could you blame the OFs for negatively reacting?
In February of 2020, its acting President was made to resign due to a fraudulent scheme.
Earlier in September 2019, a senate hearing on PhilHealth and DOH corruption allegations in connection with WellMed Dialysis Center that was suspended because of its involvement in the scam.
Then there’s the issue about the Overseas Filipinos who claimed to have paid premiums only to find out that theirs were stolen and the receipts forged. Gulf News reported that “liaison officers of recruitment agencies may be in cahoots with PhilHealth insiders.”
📌 The housemaids will be hit with a steep payment. 892 AED per year in 2024 is a huge amount for a general monthly salary of around 1,500 AED.
📌 the 3% increase is only for this year. It goes up to 3.5% in 2021, 4% in 2022, 4.5% in 2023 and 5% in 2024 and 2025. Do the math for your salary.
📌 To be fair, I love the idea about the dependents in the Philippines who are entitled to the same benefit as the overseas worker pending qualifications (which can be had through a private insurance company) AND the automatic lifetime membership upon reaching retirement age as long as you have paid at least 120 months (which is of NO USE if you only stayed abroad for less than 10 years!) of contribution, BUT when the agency handling it is riddled with issues of corruption, and the international coverage of private insurance companies are better and more comprehensive, aside from the problems mentioned herein, then, this new development is a boulder on the already fragile shoulders of the Filipinos working abroad.
To just accept it without a word is a new level of resilience. There is another term for it: ignorance.
If an overseas Filipino “goes home for vacation or other purposes” with missed PhilHealth payment, he/she will not be able to return or allowed to travel unless it is fully paid, INCLUDING the interest.
