The Philippine Postal Corp. is issuing a set of stamps to mark the 20th Anniversary of the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth). PHLPost said the 20th Anniversary commemorative stamp features the agency’s 20th anniversary logo and slogan “Ensuring Universal Coverage for All Filipinos.” It said the stamp will have a denomination of P10. Some 104,000 pieces have been printed by Amstar Co. PHLPost in-house artist Vic Serevo designed the colorful postage stamps to reflect the “rich history of social health insurance in the country.”
According to PHLPost, the stamps were available starting Feb. 14 at the Manila Central Post Office.
Philhealth was created after President Fidel V. Ramos signed The National Health Insurance Act, or Republic Act 7875, on February 14, 1995.
