ABOUT PAHMOC

History

It all started when the Insurance Commission called for a forum with executives of all Health Maintenance Organizations on February 21, 2017.

Two officers from well-known HMOs exchanged ideas about creating an organization that will genuinely represent its members in all industry platforms. What was initially a casual interaction progressed to an organized gathering two weeks later at the Tower Club in Makati on April 7, 2017. Eleven companies, brought together by friendship and mutual principles, then became the founding members of the Philippine Association of HMO Companies on April 21, 2017. It was followed by an election.

Two officers from well-known HMOs exchanged ideas about creating an umbrella group which, while a like-organization with the incumbent, will genuinely represent its members in all industry-sensible platforms.

What seemed to be a passive interaction progressed to what would be a gathering of independent companies two weeks later at the Tower Club in Makati on April 7, 2017.

It was a marriage of friendships and principles, until eleven companies organized itself to become the Philippine Association of HMO Companies on April 21, 2017. It was followed by the election of the first set of officers, and the eventual recognition of the Insurance Commission on July 10 of the same year.

PAHMOC now stands as a strong organization of principled and passionate HMOs committed to work together in evolving the HMO industry to new heights of success for the benefit of all its members and stakeholders.
