Issuance of OECs not linked with PhilHealth premium contributions, POEA insists


The Philippine Overseas Employment Agency (POEA) issued a statement, saying that its office did not pass a resolution that requires overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) to pay PhilHealth premiums in their application for the issuance of overseas employment certificate (OECs).

“The public is assured that POEA systems and processes on the issuance of OECs are currently not linked with that of the PhilHealth, and is consistent with the directive of President Rodrigo Duterte to ease OFWs,” Bernard Olalia, POEA administrator said in a statement that was exclusively forwarded by Dubai’s Labor Attache Felicitas Bay to The Global Filipino Magazine.
