As of June 25, 2020
Maxicare and other members of the Philippine Association of Health Maintenance Organization Companies (PAHMOC) recognize that HMOs, our partner doctors, medical providers, and patients must work together to ensure the safety of all stakeholders during the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes sharing the burden of the additional cost of personal protective equipment (PPEs) and other precautions meant to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In light of this shared responsibility, consultation professional fees (PF) for all our affiliated medical professionals and doctors are temporarily increased to Php 600.
This temporary increase will apply for consultations performed from May 25 to August 25, 2020. The effectivity of this temporary increase may be extended or shortened as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves.
