Household Utilization of Health Care by PhilHealth Members (Indigent, Sponsored Members and from the self-earning informal sectors)*

Guided by the mandate of providing financial means to all Filipino, the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PHIC) has established a pro-poor program, called initially as Sponsored Indigent Program which has enabled the access of basic healthcare services at an affordable cost. It has grown faster than the other programs and has attained its goal for universal population coverage, hitting the national target again and again. The evidence of PhilHealth’s success in terms of membership is very clear, however, the utilization of health care services, health facilities and PhilHealth benefits of indigent and sponsored members is another issue to tackle.

This study assessed the patterns of health care utilization over time, differentiated patterns of health care utilization through indigent and sponsored members, and evaluated whether efforts to increase PhilHealth sponsorships have had an impact on utilization of PhilHealth benefits by indigent and sponsored members. Secondary data from the PhilHealth database was analyzed and an analytic cross-sectional survey of households who were PhilHealth indigent members, sponsored members, members from the informal sector (self-earning), and non-members in the two lowest income quintile was done.
