Mental Illness Spares No One

Everybody is prone to mental illness according to Dr. Rene Obra, a well-respected psychiatrist in Cebu. One can experience anxiety and depression because we are all humans, he added. Therefore, uncomfortable symptoms must not be ignored. Irregularities in the sleeping, eating, and physical habits are symptoms enough for a certain mental illness. It just depends on the degree of the disorder.



Beating the Stigma

Sad experiences are not reasons enough to commit suicide. They are mere triggers. Depression can lead to suicidal tendencies. The feeling of unworthiness is often caused by lack of nutrients and hormonal imbalance. Eating fresh fruits and vegetables every morning in an empty stomach can help regulate blood circulation. Thus, helping in getting rid of discomforts internally.


Insurance Coverage for Mental Illness

Arnel Pahang, an insurance expert explains the insurance coverage for mental illness in the Philippines. He said that suicides are actually covered when it happens at least after 12 months of the reinforcement of the policy. This is in the case of life insurance. Although he warns not to encourage suicides but should it happen, it is best to have insurance for more than a year.

Limited Social Insurance Scheme

The new social insurance scheme covers mental disorders but is limited to acute inpatient care. Psychotropic medications are available in mental health facilities. A Commission on Human Rights of The Philippines exists, however, human rights were reviewed only in some facilities and only a small percentage of mental health workers received training related to human rights. These measures need to be extended to all facilities.

The Least Imee Marcos Can Do to Influence a Cash – Free Policy for Private Hospitals

cash
By: Elena Grace Flores

Filipino voters are already aware of the important criteria for Senators. They must have the capability to create laws that would upgrade the people’s lifestyle. Gov. Imee Marcos seems to have that capability. In fact, the cash or gold scandals that her family faces compliments that. She champions a project that further addresses the demand for nursing employment opportunities. The Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte (PGIN) partners with BPO companies to provide online health care jobs to all registered nurses in the province. On top of that, she calls for all medicines to be exempted from value-added tax (VAT) as she pushes for a review of the cheaper medicines law. Marcos can certainly influence a remedy that would aid working Filipinos during medical emergencies. z

Oversupply of Nurses is Not a Problem with Imee Marcos

The Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte (PGIN) in partnership with Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) companies takes measures to provide employment opportunities for Ilocano nurses. This is in line with Marcos’ commitment to generate more jobs for the Ilocanos. Her influence is definitely the key to its success.

Removal of VAT from Medicines

Marcos, who runs for a Senate seat said Republic Act 9502 or the cheaper medicines law fails to make medicines more affordable. This is because certain provisions in the law favor the interests of big pharmaceutical companies in the country. Ten years after the law passes, the prices of medicines, particularly for critical diseases and illnesses remain exorbitant. She said that to drastically bring down the prices of medicines it is crucial to remove the VAT from all medicines.

The Failure of the Aquino Administration

In fairness of the Aquino administration, it launches the Universal Health Care (UHC). It gives provision to every Filipino of the highest possible quality of health care. That should be accessible, efficient, with fair funds or assistance, and appropriate for the public”. The former President puts ita availability and accessibility friendly for all Filipinos. His government aims to ensure that every Filipino shall receive affordable and quality health benefits. This should provide adequate resources – health human resources, health facilities, and health financing. But it fails greatly because of the poor mentality influence. Public hospitals are crowded. PhilHealth can only provide maximum of 20% off hospital bills. On top of that, private hospitals can be rude to patients when they run out of their insurance coverage.

Cash – Less Deals with Private Hospitals

The workforce needs quality health care assistance. This is the key to a progressive economy or population in general. A serious illness must not cripple a promising individual. Since the policies of private hospitals are not in line with the government’s provision, a medical funding facility for this purpose is necessary. This would allow cash – less deal with the private hospital involved.

Political Provisions during Elections

Politicians would surely allocate funds for medical purposes during elections in the Philippines. Although they are mediocre, at least they exist. However, Filipinos deserve more than that. A country can’t be powerful when a mere disease can make them bankrupt when it strikes. Australia and England, for example, accommodate expensive health procedures to their citizens with money for free. The government owes the progress of a nation to its people.

No Insurance for Robredo’s Rating to Rise after Japan Speech and Pilot Radio Show

insurance





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Leni Robredo has been the target of frequent attacks by allies of the President and other anti-Liberal Party groups. This has put a dent into her trust ratings. She, however, continues to criticize online abuses in her speeches especially overseas. The most recent one was in Japan. Not enough, Robredo now has an hour-long radio program every Sunday over RMN-DZXL. Unfortunately, no insurance that these efforts can salvage her from the rating dip because they seemed to be ignored.






Youtube video by; ABS-CBN News
[VIDEO]: Vice President Leni Robredo pushed for women empowerment in business as she spoke before global and business leaders at an international summit for women in Japan. Robredo is in Tokyo for a two-day visit. More than 1,000 business leaders and top government officials from more than 60 countries attended the summit’s opening day.



Japan Summit

Leni Robredo cited the difficulties of women due to the anonymity that cyberspace affords abusers. Robredo calls online harassment as an “emerging threat” in the Philippines. Filipino lawmakers have yet to pass measures that will make online users safe from abuse. She said this during the Global Summit of Women in Tokyo, Japan.




Quantity and Quality Time

Robredo advised parents to spend both “quantity time” and “quality time” with their children. It’s true that this is crucial for families but the VP did not quite offer a solution while she occupies the second top position in the land. She did mention to come up with more local jobs so that parents do not have to work overseas. She said this on Sunday, Mother’s Day during the pilot episode of her radio show.




Health and Nutrition

On nutrition, Robredo expressed concern over the disruptive growth of Filipino children in remote communities. She claimed that she filed a bill in Congress that would allow barangay nutrition scholars and barangay health workers to become permanent government employees. This would allow them to reach more families and teach them proper nutrition than being just volunteers. It is not certain if this bill was approved or not.









No Insurance to Improve Rating

It is a pity that the VP has to anchor a radio show and galavant around to read speeches even if she does not have the right charisma for it. The strategy could actually make her trust rating a lot lower because most people hate her guts for insisting that she won the Vice Presidential race without cheating vs the popular Bongbong Marcos. Keeping a low profile is much helpful for her these days given the circumstances.

Guidelines for Cheaper Insurance Costs


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
You might be shopping around for your home and car insurance right now but it is best to know where to look first. Asking the wrong people might mislead you. Just five things to remember:

1. Discounts are not given voluntarily. Do not agree right away on what is offered. Make it a point to ask for promotional offers like the month that they are more likely available.
2. Pay a substantial lump sum to lessen the remaining premiums but first, deal only with insurers that are tried and tested by people you know well. After all, it won’t matter how much discount you got if the claims will not materialize.

3. Do not eliminate disaster coverage just because calamities rarely happen in your area. You never know when they strike!
4. Include substantial liability coverage in your insurance to be able to take care of other people that you cause harm in case of car accident or injured within your property. This will save you from possible lawsuits in the future.

5. Get a renter’s insurance if you do not own the house. You will also be covered with liability and loss of properties in your household.

If you are happy with your existing car insurance, ask the same provider if they have other kinds of insurances that you might need. Often, if you are already a good client, they will try to give you the best options you can avail. It’s smart to do it that way.
