    Was out the other day and decided to do a walk around Ace Doctors Hospital. Nice place, clean and easy to get around. Doctors offices were mostly unstaffed, I was there between 10 and 11AM, not sure what time most clinics open.

    Got back home and sent a message to ISOS, that manages Tricare here. I asked if they are a certified provider as far as hospital services and labs go. They are not.

    So if you use them, don't expect any reimbursement. Some of the doctors may be certified, but nothing else.

    Do you know if they reimburse Phil-health?

    Just got out of ACE where I spend the last couple of nights (respiratory problem - not COVID related). They do not admit COVID patients, but staff is wearing masks (as they should be) at all times, including janitors. Yes they do reimburse PhilHealth, at least they did when my wife paid the bills. I have a PhilHealth card and my dues are paid up, so I should receive the reimbursement (deduction on the bill before the final amount to be paid). Not a fan of hospitals in any way, shape or form, but I have nothing but praise for them. Also lucky with my physician, Dr Cuyacot. Pleasant, straightforward and approachable. His clinic starts at 16.00 hrs (4 PM for the illiterate).

    Dr. Cuyacot has been my doctor for a few years and I second your assessment. I have a high opinion of him personally and of his ability. He is a pulmonary doctor but has treated me for other ailments too. I thought his office started a little earlier but whether it does or not, he is at Silliman in the doctor's building there. He has hospital privileges at Silliman and Ace.

    Agreed. Rather nasty I think. Why would you be illiterate for not understanding the 24 hour clock? Not everyone was in the military and not everyone is expected to know.

    I worked all of my career in 24 hour clock (anyone ready for that lesson on bus timetables?). It's a very easy mathematical conversion either way, so there may be some argument to brand anyone who does not understand it as lacking in some intelligence (although illiterate seems a bit strong to me). Each to their own however.
