The Social Security System (SSS) gave 30 more days to the five-day prescriptive period for filing sickness notifications of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) for their illnesses not requiring hospitalization, in consideration of their limited time and accessibility to SSS offices while abroad.
Dr. Brenda P. Viola, SSS Officer-in-Charge of the Medical Services Division, said OFWs previously had five calendar days from the start of home confinement to file their sickness notification, and this prescriptive period is now extended to a total of 35 calendar days.
The public is hereby warned on the proliferation of fake PhilHealth Official Receipts (POR) issued to PhilHealth members particularly to Overseas Filipino Workers.
