Montes 06:21 PM, Jun 24, 2022

Greetings! My wife is a PWD (visual disability as stated in her ID). Kindly let us know the procedure on how she can get a PWD Philhealth membership. Also, does it require for the PWD to be an indigent in order to avail of the PWD Philhealth membership?  We have already inquired at the Philhealth Region 4A office but they were not able to provide the information we requested as, according to them, they still haven't received a memo regarding this.
