President Benigno S. Aquino III graced the launching of the All Rate Case and Z-Morph Benefit Package, an assistance given to Persons with Disability (PWD), at the Heroes Hall, Malacañan Palace.
Spearheaded by the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth), Z-Morph, or Z Benefits Rate for the Mobility, Orthosis, Rehabilitation, Prosthesis Help, aims to benefit persons with disabilities with lost or deficient limbs in support of government initiatives to protect the interest and well being of PWDs.
In his speech, President Aquino attested his administration’s plan on giving continuous healthcare for the country. He thanked PhilHealth for their efforts of bringing quality and efficient health service, not only to ordinary Filipinos, but also for the PWD sector thru the Z-Morph Prosthesis Benefit Package. He then challenged everyone to continue the unity towards a healthier country.
“Hindi man madali, napatunayan nating posible ito, basta’t sama-sama, basta’t nagkakaisa, basta’t nagmamalasakit sa isa’t isa, kaya nating makamit ang makabuluhang transpormasyon ng ating bansa,” he said.
The Z-Morph Prosthesis Benefit Package is a part of the Z Package introduced by PhilHealth on 2012. It provides true financial risk protection for PhilHealth members with medically and financially catastrophic condition.
