More often than not, people tend to put less importance to their health and one primary cause of this fact is the low income that families receive. Individuals/families spend their income to avail other commodities and services like food and education leaving their budget for health insufficient. With that fact, Governor Jeorge E.R. Ejercito Estregan conceptualized the Laguna Health Access Program, more commonly called the Orange “E.R.” Card of Laguna.
This program is primarily aimed to provide a quality health care program that will benefit the low income families/residents of the province. This will be done by providing subsidized hospitalization services in hospitals owned by the Provincial Government of Laguna (PGL) and by giving the beneficiaries the full range of medical services as in-patients and out-patients in the government hospitals of the province.
Beneficiaries of this program will be identified through a thorough screening process by the staff of the Special Services Division of Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (SSD-PSWDO).
