I have a big “mommy” wallet. I have so many IDs and discount cards that I bring with me everyday. It’s been a habit of mine to bring the extras in my bag so that I can always be prepared in case something happens to me, Dan or the kids (knock on wood!!)
Healthwise, I never leave home without these cards.
The Philcare ERVantage HMO card is the newest addition to my ever growing “must-brings” which I got from Smart. I already have extensive coverage for myself and the kids with our company’s HMO and Philhealth but I got this card in cases when my HMO would not be able to cover our expenses anymore. I’ve experienced this firsthand when we’ve maxed out our HMO’s coverage when Noah was admitted for Pneumonia last year. Buti na lang talaga umabot pa pero sagad na sagad na kami. And so it really is a must for me that we not only have extra funds to cover the emergency care of our loved ones but additional coverage as well.
The other reason why I also have Philcare’s ERVantage card is that it allows me to extend this coverage to our darling yayas, Ate Ann and Ate Maimai. Their health is also my responsibility. I give them vitamins and buy medicines for them when they are not feeling well. If something happens, at least I have the coverage to provide them with the proper medical care. This card as well as the other ER hospitalization cards are for individuals 6 months to 64 years old.
