Banking on the ‘sachet‘ phenomenon similar to sari-sari store‘s “tingi” shampoos and conditioner concept, I think the insurance industry will hit the right button with the concept of a budget prepaid health insurance specifically that of the PhilCare Health Vantage Card.

PhilCare Health Vantage

Did you know that only 4% of Filipinos have a comprehensive HMO coverage (and most have it only through the large corporations they work in that are given bulk discounts)?

This means that most Filipinos simply aren’t prepared for life emergencies or even minor hospitalizations. When such eventualities do occur, the financial cost often lead to debt and more problems.

With the regular Filipino’s financial reality in mind, PhilCare created the Health Vantage prepaid card.
