PCSO Medical Assistance Program

The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) has conceptualized and established the Individual Medical Assistance Program (IMAP) to attend to the financial needs of all individuals with health-related problems through the provision of financial assistance. A guarantee letter is issued to the hospital or partner health facility which assumes the obligations of a specific amount due from the client for the services rendered.

Criteria for the PCSO Medical Assistance

All Filipino patients who request for assistance, either personally or through a representative, on a health-related concern, including:

  • Those confined in  any health facility
  • Those receiving health care management as outpatients; and
  • Those seeking management in foreign countries, provided that no health facility within the Philippines is capable of providing such procedure.
