Community consulta is under its preventive phase, first of three health care coverage of BacCHP (preventive, promotive, and curative).
The preventive phase aims to collectively understand the health status of barangays residents and promote effective health measures necessary from each barangay by their health stations and workers.
Community consulta includes checking of vital signs, urinalysis, oxygen saturation, blood testing (levels on sugar, uric acid, cholesterol, and hemoglobin), electrocardiogram (ECG), and giving out prescribed medicine after a free consultation with the doctor.
Health Insurance and Health Care Consultant Atty. Valerie Anne Hollero, emphasized that health care should not be selective and every one from all walks of life is rightful to avail the BacCHP.
Philhealth members are eligible beneficiaries for this program. Barangay Health workers have disseminated registration forms throughout their indigents, regardless they can seek their respective barangay hall for the said form.
