PCSO Individual Medical Assistance Program

How do you ask the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes for financial support? There are many ways on how you can ask for money from PCSO. One of them is through the Individual Medical Assistance Program or IMAP.

Under this program, medical assistance is given to individual patients through the issuance of guarantee letters to hospitals where the patients are confined. A guarantee letter is a certification issued to hospitals for a particular charity patient under the PCSO medical assistance program where the agency assumes the obligation of settling the cost of hospitalization, including the medicines, medical, surgical or blood supplies, and diagnostic procedures.

PCSO’s objectives for this medical assistance program are the following:
General : Restoration of social functioning (Physical recovery) through medical assistance
Specific : Provide assistance for hospitalization expenses, laboratory procedures and purchase of medicines, chemo drugs, dialysis solutions, antibiotics, implants, devices and other medical needs.

What are the requirements that you need to submit to the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes office to avail of this medical assistance?

  1. Letter Request to Chairman/General Manager
  2. Medical Abstract
  3. Bill/Quotation/Costing from Hospital Pharmacy/Supplies
  4. Laboratory Request/Medicine Prescription
  5. Endorsement/Acceptance letter from Hospital Social Services/Credit Collection Office

    Bakit po kaya ang tagal ng payment ng PCSO sa hospital? Na-admit po ang biyenan ko last year pa ng mga September/October 2014, pero until now wala pa daw po ang tulong ng Pcso sa hospital. Saan po kaya pwedeng i-follow up yon? May refund pa po kase kame sa hospital, hinde po nila mai-release kase wala pa daw po yung sa PCSO..

    Hi Sir / Madam,

    Good day!
    GUsto ko lang iclarify yung mga requirements na inistate mo.

    What are the requirements that you need to submit to the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes office to avail of this medical assistance?

    Letter Request to Chairman/General Manager – (Si patient ba ang gagawa ng letter then address to chariman/GM ng PCSO?)
    Medical Abstract – (Kanino ito nakukuha? sa Hospital ba?)
    Bill/Quotation/Costing from Hospital Pharmacy/Supplies – (Iba ba ito yung total bill? like in my condition, ksma ba dito yung surgery? Nirerequest lng ba to?)
    Laboratory Request/Medicine Prescription – (Kanino po sa hospital ito nirerequest, sa Doctor po b?)
    Endorsement/Acceptance letter from Hospital Social Services/Credit Collection Office – (Endorsement? from whom? and to whom shall the letter be address?)

    Umaaasa po sana ako na magabayan nio ako sa mga tanong ko. My BF was diagnosed with RHD and as per his Doctor from PHC kailangan ng operahan dahil isa nlng yung valve na gumagana sa knya. Pag di pa naagapan ikakamatay nia yun. Yung surgery na gagawin ay mdadagdagan lng ng 15years ang buhay nia kasi hanggang ganun lng ang kayang itagal ng prostethic valve na ikakabit. At halos 1M ang kailangan gastusin para sa Valve surgery. We are hoping na matutulungan kame ng PCSO para sa gastusin. Kaya umaasa po ako ng sobra sa tulong nio.

    Maraming Salamat po at gabayan ka pa po sana ng Panginoon.
    🙂

    Sir,madame, I am begging for your help because I really want to undergo kidney transplant to live more years with my family.But my family’s income is not enough to support the operation.

    Hoping for your feedback and kind heart

    Thank You and God Bless…

    Dear Sir / Madam,

    A blessed day!

    “A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal” by Steve Narabole

    I am Flordeliza Afable, 25, single, from Rodriguez, Rizal. I am a teacher but currently not working because of Hyperthyroidism.This year supposed to be, is my fifth year in the teaching career. Having this illness is really not easy. A lot of symptoms occurs, and it has now hindered my teaching career, and dreams.

    Almost two years ago, I was diagnosed with this illness. I was teaching then, in a private school run by the sisters. Honestly, they are not providing any medical card that I can use in case of emergency, since I was just in a probationary period then. With the salary I had, I know I cannot take care the hospitalization bill if i would be confined. Until the time that I had absences already because of the constant fever, dizziness,and abnormal feelings which are one of the symptoms of hyperthyroidism. And these cause a salary deduction. By this time, buying my medicine (PTU) was become very impossible for me to support regularly. I was asked by my doctor to take 3 tablets of PTU 3 times a day. So meaning, I should take 9 tablets a day of PTU, which actually cost a big amount already. This situation led me to file a resignation.

    I did my best to ask financial assistance from my family, but sadly, they cannot afford it. I am the only college graduate in our family, and for now, I am really hoping that somebody with more and has a generous heart would help me. I cannot say ‘yes” to the doctor yet for the confinement, because I have to be sure that there will be an angel already who’ll support me.

    I am now at home to rest. However, my thyroid (neck) is already getting bigger and these different symptoms I am experiencing right now are giving me a hard time to act normal, help my family, and pursue my dream to become a nun someday, to help other people, too to the best I can.

    I am really willing to undergo radioactive or any treatment that is best to cure my illness easily for this is getting more risky. I really don’t want to die yet, because of this. I am still young and I still want to work hard, use the talents and skills that I have for my love ones and people who needs me. I still want to help the congregation, and this will only be possible if you, and everyone, would help me.

    With humility, I would like to hear more from you. .. to have an assurance, so in God’s perfect time, I can already be admitted to the hospital, without worrying that my family will be stuck to debts.I am willing to do the processes that you and I would need to follow to make this successful. Just please guide me.If you need to communicate with me, you are most welcome to message me in my email add ([email protected]).

    For this request that I am asking, I really do not know what I can give in return to your generosity and compassion. But I can assure you, in any way possible, I will help and continuously pray for you.

    Thank you so much for taking time to read this letter of mine. More powers to PCSO and its family. May God bless you always.

    Sincerely yours,

    FLOR AFABLE

    If you have the requirements already, go to the PCSO QC office or any PCSO branch to submit them. If you can’t do it by yourself, prepare an authorization letter in favor of your representative who will submit those requirements for you. Note: The service is a first come, first serve basis.
