Package at Php10,000.

 

The PhilHealth benefit rate for medical detoxification package is Php10, 000 as
articulated in PhilHealth Circular No.2016-0030.

 

However, the state-run agency emphasized that the medical detoxification is only
the first stage or the precursor to effective drug addiction treatment.

 

The success of the medical detoxification depends on the collaborative and
concerted efforts of pertinent agencies that shall address the challenges of
drug addiction in terms of the personal, health and societal aspects of
drug rehabilitation.

 

The medical detoxification package is available to PhilHealth members with
acute physical symptoms of use of amphetamine-type stimulants such as
methamphetamine, cocaine or ecstasy or a combination of these.

 

However, if there is a documented indication to treat a common co-morbidity
associated with withdrawal symptoms arising from the substance, a case rate
corresponding to the co-morbidity may also be availed of.

 

All PhilHealth eligible members and dependents can avail themselves of the
benefit package as a one-time benefit”, and emphasized that, “the No Balance
Billing policy will be applied at all times to indigent, sponsored, kasambahay,
lifetime and senior citizen members who are admitted in ward accommodation
in accredited government Health Care Institutions (HCIs).

 

PhilHealth members who are admitted in government HCIs but are not eligible to
NBB will have a co-payment that should not exceed the package rate.

 

Payments for medical detoxification package can be paid in a single tranche
to the accredited HCI.

 

The package can be availed of in all accredited levels 1, 2 and 3 government
