Indigent patients of the Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center Emergency Room and the Outpatient Department may avail of the medical assistance secured by Mayor Benjamin Magalong from the Office of Sen. Grace Poe.
Magalong announced the release of the fund amounting to P1 million from the senator who welcomed the partnership with the city to sustain the city government’s thrust to provide free healthcare services to residents in dire need of medical assistance.
The mayor said his office has coordinated with the Medical Social Work Department of BGHMC to work out the financial aid.
From Oct. 21 to Dec. 31, 2019, the City Mayor’s Office will accept requests from qualified patients by issuing referral letters to avail of the medical aid.
Patients are required to submit the following documents: originally signed certificate of indigency from their respective barangays, valid identification card, medical abstract/certificate, billing statement and/or doctor’s prescription to the CMO during office hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
To ensure the qualification of the applicants, the BGHMC will verify the authenticity of the submitted documents. – Aileen P. Refuerzo
