OWWA 7 Helps Ill OFWs

Overseas Filipino workers can now apply for supplemental medical assistance through the Overseas Workers Welfare and Administration (OWWA) 7 under the MEDPlus program.

The MEDplus program aims to give supplemental medical relief for the ill members of OWWA and Philhealth. Such illnesses include cancer, chronic liver diseases, heart diseases, and more. This covers medical/hospital bills.

To be eligible, the OFW must be active members of OWWA and Philhealth during hospitalization.
