Sa Wakas, Kalusugan ng Buong Pamilya!

Ni Clark C. Baluan

Sa panahon ngayon, mahirap sa tao ang maging malusog, lalo pa sa buong pamilya. Masyadong mahal ang kalusugan. Pero may paraan na, ayon sa patunay ng maraming kasapi ng San Dionisio Credit Cooperative (SDCC) na sumali sa Coop Health Program ng IMS Wellth Care, Inc. (IWC). Ginamit ng mga kasaping ito ang serbisyo ng IWC Clinic para maagapan o malunasan ang mga sakit. Lumalabas na mahigit P100 lang kada buwan, sakop na ang alaga ng buong pamilya. “Libre-konsulta kaming lahat, kaya nga ang mga anak ko, kaunting sipon lamang dinadala ko na sa Clinic,” sinabi ni Rodelia Lumogdang. Wala ring bayad ang laboratory tests ng mga miyembro ng Coop Health, at may diskwentong 10% ang pamilya nila. Para siyang “family health manager” – tagapamahala ng kalusugan ng pamilya, ayon kay Ms. Regina Orcullo. Ang kailangan lang talaga ay magpunta sa IWC Clinic at gamitin ang mga serbisyong handog nito sa mga miyembro ng Coop Health Program.
