Mandatory insurance coverage for overseas Filipino workers

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has issued a stern warning to agencies recruiting land- and sea-based Filipino workers not to commit the mistake of passing on to their recruits the cost of the mandatory insurance coverage for overseas Filipino workers (OFWs).

Labor Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz said agencies caught violating this provision under Republic Act No. 10022 shall face penalties in accordance with existing rules and regulations of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).

The POEA, through Administrator Jennifer Jardin-Manalili, has vowed to strictly monitor agencies that would attempt to circumvent the law, particularly the new provisions under R.A. 10022.

Licensed recruitment and manning agencies or foreign employers shall bear the cost of the insurance coverage of workers as mandated by R.A. 10022.

However, Manalili said insurance coverage is optional for name hires, rehires (balik-manggagawa or vacationing workers) as well as workers hired through government-to-government arrangement. These workers may request their foreign employers to pay the cost of insurance or they themselves may pay the premium.

The no-nonsense implementation of the provisions of R.A. 10022 is among the reforms committed to by the DOLE under the Aquino administration.

On top of the OWWA life insurance of P100,000 for natural death, P200,000 for accidental death, P100,000 for total permanent disability, and P50,000 burial benefits, R.A. 10022 requires recruitment agencies to pay the premium of the following insurance coverage for OFWs: US$ 15,000 in case of accidental death; $ 10,000 in case of natural death, and $ 7,500 in case of permanent disablement, including repatriation costs, subsistence allowance benefit, money claims, compassionate visit, medical evacuation, and medical repatriation.

The Insurance Coverage Guidelines was signed on September 8, 2010 and published in a national newspaper on Sept. 17, 2010. Hence, the insurance policy has become a mandatory requirement for processing of OFW contracts and overseas employment certificates (OECs).

Baldoz explained that a certificate of cover (COC) provided by an insurance firm licensed and certified by the Insurance Commission (IC0) is now required before the issuance of OECs or exit clearance of agency-hired OFWs.

She said a certificate of entry or other proofs of insurance coverage from the manning agency shall be accepted for seafarers if the vessel is covered by protection and indemnity. The coverage must also conform to pertinent POEA rules and regulations and the POEA Standard Terms and Conditions Governing the Overseas Employment of Filipino Seafarers on Board Oceangoing Ships.

At least  something beneficial  was agreed for the worker and the family.

there are more than half million Pinoy seamen abroad,  yet this basic insurance to protect them and their families is not fully implemented?
