Healthcare in the Philippines

Hospitals in and around Manila often offer high-quality  medical care. However, even the best hospitals may not  meet the standards of medical care, sanitation, and  comfort provided by hospitals in the United States. Many  hospitals outside major urban areas may offer only basic  medical care in rudimentary conditions. It is wise to  evaluate the standards of medical care at a hospital before contemplating a medical procedure.

Most hospitals will require a downpayment at the time of admission. Local hospitals do not usually accept U.S.  health insurance policies, but many U.S. insurers will  reimburse patients for hospital charges. Patients are often  required to pay their bills before being discharged from the hospital.

Two of the premier private hospitals in Manila are the

Makati Medical Center, Amorsolo Street, Makati, Tel.:  (011-63-2) 815-9911

St. Luke’s Hospital, E. Rodriguez Avenue, Quezon City, Tel.: (011-63-2) 722-6161 or 723-0301.
