Call for Expression of Interest - pre-design study of an outpatient benefit 
package for medicines in the Philippines

Dear all,

The WHO Country Office for the Philippines is considering recruiting a short 
term technical assistant to perform a pre-design study of an outpatient benefit 
package for medicines for the National health insurance.

The overall objective of the technical assistance is to present options to 
develop an outpatient medicines benefit package focused on medicines, using 
accredited heath care entities as providers of medicines eligible for 
reimbursement by the national health insurance.

The specific objectives of this technical assistance include:
*       Study and present feasible options to introduce an outpatient medicines 
benefit package funded with the national health insurance resources for its 
members;
*       Assessment of stakeholders? willingness to participate in such schemes, 
including retailers and prescribing agents;
*       Study and present options of who should be the fund holders, defined as 
the stakeholders that will trigger the benefit (giving the prescription/ 
control costs);
*       Study and describe the potential impact on the national health 
insurance claim procedures and operations workload in order to assess the 
absorption capacity of such package by this institution as well as providers 
capacity to process and submit medicines benefit claims to the national health 
insurance; and recommend applicable claims processing procedure and payment 
mechanism.

Individuals interested by this project are invited to submit their resume by 
December 8th to the following electronic address: dauphinc@wpro.who.int
