17. Do private and public health facilities need to be certified by the DOH as a COVID-19 facility to be included in this benefit? | Kinakailangan bang maging certified ng DOH ang mga private at public health facility para makakuha ng ganitong benepisyo?

YES. Health facility shall be duly licensed or designated by the DOH for COVID-19 response in accordance with the latest National Action Plan Against COVID-19. However, the National Action Plan for COVID-19 Response also clearly stipulates that certain health facilities are part of COVID-19 response. BHS, RHUs and Urban Health Centers while not licensed are considered as part of COVID-19 response and thus need not be certified by DOH as part of COVID-19 response. 


OO. Kinakailangang lisensyado o itinalaga ng DOH bilang tumutugon sa COVID-19 batay sa National Action Plan Against COVID-19 ang mga favility. Gayunpaman, may paglilinaw na sa National Action Plan for COVID-19 Response na ang ilang health facility ay kabilang sa mga tumutugon sa COVID-19. Ang mga BHS, RHU, at UHC ay hindi lisensyado ng DOH ngunit binibilang sila bilang tumutugon sa COVID-19. Hindi na kinakailangan ng mga nabanggit ang ma-certify ng DOH bilang bahagi ng mga tumutugon sa COVID-19.
