MMDA Acting Chairman Romando Artes emphasized, “As a KPP, the MMDA medical clinic would now be able to provide all of its staff and their dependents with a primary care benefits package.”


According to Philhealth, the primary care benefits package includes health profiling, consultations, diagnostic and laboratory tests such as chest X-rays, fasting blood sugar, and electrocardiograms, as well as medicines for certain medical conditions like asthma, diabetes, and hypertension.



Emmanuel Ledesma, Jr., President and CEO of PhilHealth, lauded the MMDA for being the first government non-uniformed agency to be accredited as a KPP.


The MMDA and PhilHealth signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) to renew their partnership and seal the provision of the said benefits as well as promote coordination in related undertakings.



Under the agreement, the MMDA will also allow the display of PhilHealth information materials in its digital and non-digital advertising platforms to provide timely information on PhilHealth services and benefits.


Chairman Artes stressed, “We are committed to supporting and promoting the social health insurance and PhilHealth’s program for the benefit of the Filipino people, particularly in information dissemination.”



Ledesma underscored that the renewed alliance between PhilHealth and the MMDA will help improve the public’s access to quality healthcare, especially in the National Capital Region (NCR).


“By synergizing our efforts, we can better address our communities' evolving healthcare needs and contribute to our nation's overall health and resilience,” he stated.



As part of the agreement, PhilHealth pledged to prioritize the conduct of orientation seminars and other information dissemination activities for the employees and beneficiaries of partner agencies during special events.
