DEPARTMENT ORDER NO. 4
(Series of 2001)
 

MEDICAL CARE PROGRAM FOR OFWs AND DEPENDENTS

  

TO : ALL CONCERNED

SUBJECT : MEDICAL CARE PROGRAM FOR OFWs AND DEPENDENTS

In line with the efforts of the Department to streamline processes and make its procedures worker-friendly, overseas Filipino workers who have opted to subscribe to Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PHIC) for Medicare coverage shall no longer secure a Certificate of Exemption from OWWA as a pre-requisite for obtaining an overseas employment certificate (OEC).

The POEA shall issue the OEC upon completion of documentary requirements, including the receipt of payment of Nine hundred pesos (P900) for the annual medical care premium issued either by OWWA or PHIC.

This Order revokes all provisions of POEA Memorandum Circular No. 70, Series of 1994, and OWWA Memorandum of Instructions No. 001, Series of 2001, that are inconsistent herewith.

Effective immediately.

May 29, 2001
