Emergency Health Care is Just a Prepaid Card Away

Health is wealth. This is not just a saying for me coz I really believe nothing is more important than the safety and good health of my family. Prevention is key, but as parents, we always need to be prepared for emergency health needs and address our overall wellness. 

For our health needs, there are several options we can avail of, like getting health insurance. Unfortunately, many don't have access to HMOs. Mahirap magkasakit, and it's scary to think about health-related emergencies. Well, as a Smart brand ambassador, you can always expect me to be a bearer of good news from Smart. =)  This prepaid health card is the latest service from Smart and it can even be extended to family members and friends!

Smart eMoney Inc. (SMI), the financial services subsidiary of Smart Communications, Inc., and PhilCare, one of the top HMO providers in the country today, have tied-up to provide easy and convenient access to health services. Simply load up your Smart Money account and you can buy any PhilCare prepaid health card as needed!

Here's how it works:
  • Smart users can conveniently purchase hospital and clinic health packages and pay through mobile devices using Smart Money
  • PhilCare's ER Vantage products provide Filipinos immediate access to quality and efficient emergency health care at very affordable prices
  • The emergency hospitalization cards are for individuals 6 months to 64 years old
  • Prepaid cards will be delivered straight to the users
  • Once the card is received, benefits may already be availed 7 days after successful SMS registration
