ACPS for doctors

Doctors accredited by the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation will be receiving their payment from PhilHealth for reimbursement of professional fees through an Auto Credit Payment Scheme (ACPS).
PhilHealth's ACPS is a system where payment of professional fees is made through an automatic credit to the account opened by PhilHealth in the Land Bank of the Philippines branch nearest the residence or hospital affiliation of the accredited doctor. PhilHealth Bicol regional head Orlando D. Iñigo said that ACPS implementation in Bicol started last October 15. As a general policy, the accredited doctor need to open an account in Land Bank.

Based on the list of accredited doctors in the PhilHealth Bicol regional office database, the Land Bank was requested to assign a reserve account number in the branch nearest the doctor's residence or hospital affiliation. The doctor will now receive a Letter of Introduction (LOI) from PhilHealth, which he/she will present to the branch where his/her account was assigned, to get the ATM card.

Newly-accredited doctors can write or call PhilHealth Bicol Regional Office No. V (PROV) to identify where they want their account to be opened, Iñigo said. Schedule for crediting is every 15th or 30th of the month. A payment notice will be sent to the doctor detailing the amount credited, name of patients, period of confinement and the exact date when the amount was credited. The Auto Credit Payment Scheme is mandatory to all PhilHealth-accredited doctors except salaried government doctors whose professional fees will still be paid through the issuance of a check payable to the Chief of Hospital.

In other developments, the PhilHealth Bicol regional office calls on all employers in Bicol to remit on time and win special prizes in the "REACT AGAD" Contest. Recently, the PROV Contribution and Data Management Division launched the "REACT AGAD" Contest that seeks to encourage all employers to enroll their employees in the National Health Insurance Program and, by promptly remitting the latter's premium contributions and submitting remittance reports, will qualify them for the promo.

All employers who remit on or before the 10th of the month and submit their quarterly reports to the PhilHealth Bicol regional office or to any PhilHealth Service Office regionwide not later than the 15th of the month following the applicable quarter, bearing complete and proper information, are entitled to raffle draw ticket/s. For total remitted amount of P150,999 and above for every quarter, employer will receive five raffle draw tickets.
