No appointment needed at Maxicare’s new Primary Care Clinics in VV Soliven and Skyrise Cebu

Maxicare Primary Care Clinics are established to give Maxicare members convenient access to superior healthcare and excellent customer experience.

Maxicare, the largest Health Maintenance Organization in the Philippines, announced that appointments won’t be necessary for its two new Primary Care Clinics (PCCs) in VV Soliven Shopping Complex, EDSA Greenhills, San Juan City; and Skyrise Tower 4B, Guanzon St. Cebu IT Park, Cebu City.

Maxicare Primary Care Clinics are established to give Maxicare members convenient access to superior healthcare and excellent customer experience. Usually, an HMO member needs to book an appointment and present a Letter of Appointment (LOA) to avail themselves of consultations or medical tests in accredited clinics and hospitals.

For the Maxicare members’ convenience, they can skip these steps as PCCs provide a paperless queueing system and an electronic medical recording system. Members can simply walk in and complete their lab tests and doctor consultations within half an hour; with an average waiting time of only six minutes. To make waiting inside PCCs the most relaxing healthcare experience, guests are offered free beverages, wifi access, and charging stations for their devices.

Maxicare President and CEO Sean Argos explained that Filipinos deserve convenient access to quality medical services. The Primary Care Clinics were established with this in mind. “We want to encourage Filipinos to make sure that they are in the best of health. We have learned that Filipinos tend to delay their hospital visits as these take up so much of their time. It is our mission, as a company, that whatever our patients and members need today and, in the future, are served in our Primary Care Clinics. We want this to be their safe space, we want to be here for them during their trying times, and we want to serve them faster so that they can spend time on things that matter most in their life.”

Maxicare PCCs are equipped with diagnostic and laboratory test equipment with consultation rooms for families, ENT room, extraction room for blood tests, vital signs station with BMI machine, radiology station with x-ray machine, and heart station with ECG machine. Patients can also consult with primary care physicians, and specialists in Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, OB Gynecology, ENT, Dermatology, Ophthalmology, and Psychiatry.

Maxicare Primary Care Clinics provide over 255 laboratory tests and procedures such as complete blood count, lipid profile (cholesterol tests), fasting blood sugar, and SGPT (liver test). They also have special laboratory tests like CA 125 (cancer antigen test) and ferritin (iron-stores test). The heart station includes ECG, 2D echo, treadmill stress test, and, soon, the Holter and Ambulatory monitoring. Anti-rabies vaccine and COVID-19 RT-PCR tests are also available.

“Maxicare is expanding our Primary Care Clinics to places closer to our members. Later this year, we are targeting to open three more PCCs before 2022 ends, with more to be opened next year,” Argos said. “We will continue finding ways to help our fellow Filipinos live their best lives.”

Take a look at the newly opened Maxicare Primary Care Clinics in VV Soliven and Skyrise Cebu.

Maxicare Prima Gold, Prima Silver, and E-Ready Advance prepaid cardholders have free and unlimited consultations at PCCs. At present, a total of 12 Primary Care Clinics are open nationwide: (Luzon) VV Soliven Greenhills EDSA, Eton Centris Quezon City, Northgate Filivest Alabang, SM City Clark, Ayala North Exchange Makati City, Bridgetowne Quezon City, W City Center BGC, and Double Dragon Meridian Park Pasay City; (Visayas) Skyrise Cebu IT Park, Cebu Business Park, and Megaworld Blvd. Iloilo; (Mindanao) Abreeza Mall Davao City.

Hearing from a policyowner who found a lifeline in insurance

For Cerila Espidillon, her insurance plan not only provided financial assistance but also served as a source of strength for her and her family, enabling them to confront the ordeal without worrying about the added burden of debt.

Life is full of uncertainties, and cancer is one of the toughest challenges families can face. Here, we share the story of one of our policyowners who found a lifeline in the form of insurance.

For Cerila Espidillon, her insurance plan not only provided financial assistance but also served as a source of strength for her and her family, enabling them to confront the ordeal without worrying about the added burden of debt.

Espidillon shares her story of resilience and PRU Love:

“I have been insured by Pru Life UK since 2013. I come from a poor family and saw people borrowing money when they got sick, and people who relied on their children to take care of them. I told my husband that I don’t want our kids to worry about us when we grow older. I knew I made the right decision when I was diagnosed with breast cancer on Valentine’s Day in 2022. Strangely, I didn’t worry and continued with my work here in Dubai. My biggest concern was my kids seeing me sick.

“My friend and agent, Peach, helped me process my claim. It was so fast. I didn’t need to follow up because not long after I gave all my documents, the claim was already in my account. The claim not only helped me pay my hospital bills without going into debt, but also made me feel at ease knowing I am financially covered. I felt the care that Pru Life UK has for its clients. Now I can focus on my recovery and my kids. Insurance policies offer peace of mind and financial protection, especially from unforeseen incidents. If we want a better life, we need to get insurance.”

Espidillon’s story is just one example of how crucial life insurance can be for families, offering peace of mind during difficult times. To keep families protected, Pru Life UK launched PRUHealth FamLove, a yearly-renewable protection plan that shares the critical illness coverage to up to four family members in one policy.
