New Scheme for PCSO Medical Assistance for HD & PD Patients

New Scheme for PCSO Medical Assistance for HD & PD Patients


Upon the announcement and implementation of Philhealth Circular No. 022-2015 on August 2015, which increased the benefits of Philhealth members with CKD from 45 to 90 hemodialysis claims, the Individual Medical Assistance Program (IMAP) of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) for Chnronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients undergoing hemo- and peritoneal dialysis was suspended. On March 11, 2016, the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office, invited all dialysis stakeholders to a meeting at their office in the Lung Center of the Philippines to introduce its new IMAP scheme for  dialysis patients.

The new assistance program for Philhealth members emphasized a shift of support from dialysis sessions to medicines (erythropoietin) amounting to P14,000 x 6 claims for a maximum of P84,000 in a year. Non-Philhealth members who avail of the IMAP will get P20,000 for their hemodialysis procedure every other month and P35,000 for dialysis solutions for peritoneal dialysis patients every other month.

Anemia is indeed a very big complication of CKD. The PSN thanks the PCSO for its forsight and consistent support for the plight of CKD patients undergoing dialysis in the country. 

Please see the linked Powerpoint brief for more details.

The Olongapo Mission

The Olongapo Mission

The aftermath of the recent monsoon rains and flooding in Olongapo last September brought about an outbreak in Leptospirosis cases in the city. Government officials and health care providers were overwhelmed with the number of cases which were admitted to the hospitals. James L. Gordon Hospital became the center of attention as about 80% of the affected individuals flocked here. The number of admitted cases swelled to about 500 easily overwhelming the hospital staff and its resources. Members of the PSN Central Luzon Chapter and the National Organization led medical missions to help the health-workers of the hospital cope with the situation. Aside  from assisting in the delivery of care to patients, PSN volunteers took time to help educate the health-care personnel in implementing the protocols for leptospirosis. Health Secretary, Dr. Enrique Ona declared the outbreak under control on October 14, 2013.
