FOR my column this week, I would rather write the good news for Filipino jobseekers and Fil-Am senior citizens in lieu of the ongoing hearings on military corruption in the Senate of the Philippines.

Fil-Am senior citizens with Medicare contract

Fil-Am senior citizens are not covered by Medicare or Medicare HMO outside the United States.

Hence, these senior citizens would rather stay in nursing homes in the U.S. or endure a claustrophobic existence in their place of abode.

Now, the good news for Fil-Ams who have plans to relocate and retire in their ancestral homes in the Philippines or live in comfort in their spanking condominiums in Metro Manila with their hard-earned dollars.

During my last visit with Dr. Erie Agustin, with office at 57-18 Woodside Avenue, Woodside, NY 11377; telephone 718.205.0030; fax 718.205.6136, he mentioned about his ongoing negotiation with Metroplus Medicare about their proposal to cover Fil-Am senior citizens who plan to retire in the Philippines if there are enough Fil-Am senior citizens who would sign up with Metroplus.

According to Dr. Agustin, two hospitals in Metro Manila are willing to cover the medical expenses of these senior citizens.

Fil-Am senior citizens who are interested to join Metroplus Medicare, HMO should write to Dr. Agustin.

He is also planning to place long-term advertisements regarding his current negotiation with Metroplus.
