In Quezon City it is required to get an Occupational Permit and to get that one needs to show their Cedula NBI Clearance or Police Clearance and pay for the Medical Certificate Certificate/ Health Card.
Here are the steps in getting your Medical Certificate/ Health Card at Quezon City.
1. Order of Payment.
Go to the Basement of Civic Building B (located at the back of the Quezon City Hall Main Building -ask the security officers) and just say you are getting a Medical Certificate/ Health Card. The evaluator will give you the Order of Payment for the Health Fee.
Go to City Treasurer's Office Miscellaneous Fees Division (you have to exit the building, it is near Land Bank) and pay the following:
Health Fee: PhP 50
HIV Seminar Fee: PhP 50
Laboratory: PhP 94
3. Laboratory Examination
Go to the Quezon City Health Department located along Kalayaan Avenue within the Quezon City Hall Compound (near NBI Clearance Satellite Office/Red Cross Building). Submit for laboratory examination, sputum and stool, and wait for the results.
You will show your receipt and they will give you forms to fill-up. You will then submit the forms and the receipt along with your specimens. Then, they will give you a slip that indicates when you can get the results. They will return the receipt with the results.
Note: Bring stool and sputum.
You can also have your laboratory done at accredited diagnostic centers around Quezon City. I chose to have it here at Quezon City hall because it's way cheaper though not that convenient since the lines could be long and if you would drop by in the afternoon you will get the results the next day. Accordingly, you can only schedule your HIV seminar when you get the results of the lab test and paid the required fee. I suggest you submit your stool and sputum for laboratory in the morning to get the results in the afternoon.
4. Get the Laboratory Results
Go to the Quezon City Health Department as scheduled and show them the slip and an ID. They will give the results (with your receipt) and have you sign their logbook.
6. HIV Seminar
Ask for the table where they schedule the HIV Seminar. It is a requirement in getting your Medical Certificate/ Health Card. Most likely the schedule to be given is for the next day. They don't give schedule for the given day. You will show the results of your lab exam and sign their schedule sheet.
Go to the Quezon City Health Department as scheduled. HIV Seminar is held on the 3rd floor. You must come on time since they lock the door when the seminar starts. They will get your receipt and results of your laboratory test. You have to indicate if your work is Food or Non Food and you have to indicate this at the back of your receipt. You will sign beside your name on the schedule sheet.
As you are seated you will be asked to fill-in a form which will then be encoded and written on your Medical Certificate/ Health Card. You will return this form but a slip with a number will be left with you. This will be used later for the picture taking. You will also sign an attendance sheet.
The seminar is short and no dull moment. The facilitators/speakers are funny and really knows what they are talking about. They have a good system from having the HIV Seminar to getting your Health Card, so be early to get your Medical Certificate/Health Card early too.
7. Picture Taking and Verification of Information
After the HIV Seminar, you will be asked to go to the 2nd floor. Your number will be called as indicated on the slip given during the HIV seminar for picture taking and for you to check if the information encoded is correct. Correction made after printing is P50 so make sure all information are correct.
8. Getting of Health Card/ Medical Certificate.
This is in the 1st Floor of the same building where you had your HIV seminar. You will return the slip used earlier and wait for your name to be called.
You will be asked again to check the information on your Medical Certificate/Health Card if it is correct. They will give you the Medical Certificate/ Health Card with your receipt and results of your laboratory exam. You will then sign again their log book.
Your Health Card/Medical Certificate is valid for the current year and can be renewed for another 2 years.
