    I am not a student but that's where I went for my sinus issue. Walked in, 45 minute wait, saw an ENT specialist, got a prescription, paid p600. Total time just over an hour.

    That would probably be a wise decision, but Holy Child isn't all that bad IMO (I would recommend them over Silliman for anything minor as Silliman's sick call hours are packed and usually has long waits unless you are seeing one of the specialists that doesn't get much get much foot traffic). I've never actually been a patient at any of the hospitals in Dumaguete......but I know a whole lot of people who have spent quite a bit of time in them. :wink:

    My meds are not service connected so they charge me $8 per month per scrip. They are not opiods or anything like that so they are available here over the counter for just a bit more than what I paid the VA.
    As for reimbursement from VA for services outside VA system.....did not happen in my case.
    At times VA was absolutely fantastic and the people were doing an awesome job, at one other time I would have taken out a male nurse if I could have gotten out of the bed after being punched in the groin because he was mad at someone or something else.. That was in intensive care.

    If those meds you are speaking about are opiates you are likely going to have one hell of a time getting them in the Philippines. If you think the US/military is strict on those wait until you get to the Philippines. If you don't have a yellow prescription from a doctor authorized to prescribe them you are going to be SOL.

    You can have prescriptions refilled via phone or internet to VA and sent to your US address then have someone send them here.

    Or do as I do and simply pay the price for meds here which is simple but obviously will cost you.
