PhilCare launched their newest card called Unlimited Medical and Dental Consultation card yesterday held at Bristo Pamana, Makati City.

Most of the Filipinos tend to think only about their wealth when they are already sick or sometimes they self-medicate during the ties of illness. These and other surprising health truths were uncovered in 2014 when PhilCare commissioned the PhilCare Wellness Index where more than 1,200 Filipinos nationwide asked about their views on health and their well-being. The first of its kind in the Philippines, the study provided PhilCare with an in-depth look on how Filipino approach health and wellness.

In spite the act that 59% if Filipinos have access to doctors, majority – or 74 percent – still choose to self-medicate than consult a doctor.  They will only consult or see a doctor when they are already sick. Alarming right? For other people, the high cost of consultation that prevents them from seeing a doctor upon on-set of illness.

That is why PhilCare introduced their Unlimited Medical and Dental Consultation cards which allow its holder to avail of consultation services for 12 months from its nationwide network of Philcare-designated affiliated doctors.

President and CEO of PhilCare, Noemi G. Azura shared “PhilCare believes that prevention is always better than cure. Other than leading a healthy lifestyle, Filipinos should also be able to have immediate access to their doctors during onset of any illness or even just to check the progress of their health. Our new Unlimited Medical and Dental Consultation cards will address this need.”

Philcare developed three variants of Unlimited Medical and Dental Consultation cards according to the age of its user.
