Medicard: Family Health Insurance for Online Freelancers in the Philippines

My wife and I have been doing online freelancing for a couple of years now. With freelancing, we get to enjoy our own work time in the comforts of our home. But with this setup, we don't have any company in the Philippines where we can enjoy benefits like health insurance.

Now that we have a baby boy, I can't help but think of ways to insure my family in case of sickness. We were just dependent on savings and salary for medical emergencies. So, I looked for health insurance companies that could cater to independent small families like us. 

Upon thorough research on the Internet, I found out about Medicard Philippines. They have family packages. So I went through the online application found here. I selected the family package semi-private without the 5-star hospitals with 2 dependents (wife and son-less than a year old). A couple of days after, a representative from the company called me and verified the information. Then I paid P29,915 through Unionbank deposit to finish the application. I got a discount for paying through a bank deposit.



Everything went well. Joy, the representative is responsive through email and answered any questions we had. We waited for 2 weeks before we received our cards and booklets.

Our package covers P60,000 per person per illness during the 1-year period. It also includes basic dental procedures and annual physical checkup. 



My wife and I are happy with the overall transaction with the company. Now we have peace of mind in case of medical emergencies. We just pray that we'll never have to use this card for any grave ones.

Midway Minkay Beach Resort

Wife and I went to Midway Minkay beach resort as part of my birthday celebration. We agreed to go out more often while we don't have kids yet. 
The resort is located in the Municipality of Initao, around a 45-minute bus ride from Iligan city where we live. We took a Rural bus transit with a fare of P85 each person.
The resort staff were friendly and polite. Area was clean and we enjoyed the white sands. We rented a room for two for P1,799 a night with complimentary breakfast. The food was great and there were a lot of amenities that you can enjoy such as renting banana boat, zip line and jet skis. 
Overall, we had an awesome time. I highly recommend the place.
Here is a video I created about the resort. Contact numbers and rates are found in the video.
