The Run is envisioned to generate public awareness about the health care benefits that each and every member is entitled to, and how these may be availed of. The Run’s carrier theme is the primary care benefit package or ‘TSeKaP’ (Tamang Serbisyo para sa Kalusugan ng Pamilya) to instill among target participants, particularly those in the vulnerable sectors of society, the importance of having a first line of defense against costly hospitalization. Thus, the Run is dubbed “PhilHealth: Ready, TSeKaP, Go!”.
Every PhilHealth member must be actively involved in initiatives designed to help increase his awareness of what medical care benefits he is entitled to. The PhilHealth Run 2015 is one such event and since we want to empower you with the right information about your PhilHealth benefits, we want you to be part of next year’s biggest Philippine Run ever!
