  1. Malaking pahirap sa OFW pag ginawang mandatory ang pagbayad ng Philhealth…
    Hindi ako sang ayon na gawing mandatory ang pagbayad sa Philhealth

  2. Pahirap po sming mga OFW if dagdagan yung Philhealth payment premium plan,senyo nlng mpunta pinag hirapan nmin lalo n kming mga House maid n mliit lng ang sahod.me binubuhay kming Pamilya at hlos lh8 wla p kming saving,lalo ngayun n meron Pandemic….dhil di ksama ang aming pamilya s nkatangap ng pera gling s Government.porke me abroad s pamilya d u na binigyan… buti kung lah8 ng OFW ay professional or like Engineer,Doctors,at malalaki shod.sana po maisip nyo yan…

  3. Im just wondering, bakit at bakit kaming ofw ay giniit tungkol sa philhealth samantalang ang pamilya namin ay hindi nakatanggap ng ayuda dahil abroad kami…so???? Ano to??? Ngaun kami ipit ipitin??? Ano kami superman at superwoman???? Kung kelan gusto nyo mag implement ora orada???? Gigiit giitin nyo???? NO WORK NO PAY PA KAMI!!!!

  5. Pahirap sa mga ofw tapos mga kurakot lng nmn nakikinabang….. Paki balik Yung kinuha mong Pera hontivirus……

  6. I want reduction for the contribution and make it 1.5% and remove the interest for the late payment. In my case I have no beneficiary in the Philippines, my contrubution will be a clearly charity to Philhealth members… Also in my opinion, philhealth benifits of OFW supposed to be based on thier contributions.

  7. pano nmn po yun mababa ang sahod na ofw aba e hirap na hirap kami pagkayod pra sa pamilya tapos ang laki pa ng kakaltasin sa philhealth aba e magpakamatay na lng kaya kmi..paramg philhealth n lng ang ipaghahanapbuhay namin d2? di makatarungan yan..di nmn lahat ng ofw e malaki ang sahod…

  8. Unfair naman sila hindi nga nila natulungan ang lahat ng OFW nun walang trabaho dahil sa Covid tapos bigla na lng sila hihingi ng malaking contribution sa philhealth 😑😑

  9. NO TO MANDATORY PHILHEALTH
    😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑

  10. Why is there a need to introduce a new link to sign the petition? The big network in the Philippines mentioned Change.org in their news. At this time there are 170k+ OFWs signing the petition and the number is growing every second. I hope the numbers in Avaaz.org will be summed up with the number in Change.org. And I hope the new link is not created to divide the number of people signing this petition.

  11. Unfair naman to para sa mga OFW. Tapos ung makikinabang ung mga taong mas malakas pa magreklamo

  14. im not agree with this mandatory 3% contribution of philhealth….ang hirap ng magtrabaho dito sa ibang bansa..d ung sahod nmin n 6 n buwan dito sa ibang bansa mapupunta lang sa philhealth…anu yan tapos pag may mga crisis hndi mabigyan ang family n nasa ibang bansa excempted sila….1000% n hndi ako agree dito….kasi lalong pinapahirapan niyu kaming mga ofw dito paanu ung nagsasahod lang dito ng 1000riyal magbabayad ng ganyan wala ng maiuwi sa pamilya nila n pera napunta lang sa philhealth..πŸ˜”πŸ˜”πŸ˜”πŸ˜”nakakalungkot isipin tlga grabeh…murder ang ofw.

  15. Philippines is democratic country, hopefully the government Will give us a chance to choose on our own health insurance provider, I think philhealth are no longer applicable for OFW for many reasons.
    However, if the philhealth give us their clear platform on what are the benefits that would be beneficial to all perhaps I could have a second thought..
    But for now it’s a big NO on their new circular plan.
