PWD ID for Psoriasis in Bacolod City

Updated on December 2, 2016

I have Psoriasis since May 2013. I just have recently known that Psoriasis is considered a disability. I have a friend who encouraged me to get a PWD ID since it can help me save on medicines and such because of the discounts it x. I am very hesitant at first because I am having a hard time accepting that I am a disable person. But in 4 years of having suffered from this illness, I am bit by bit feeling that I am really one.With that in mind I ask a friend of mine to get me a copy of the application form from Bacolod City Hall (old building). I have the form with me for more than a month now but I haven't had the time to process it because of my busy schedule.
Finally, I went there today. My friend told me to go the the Office of the Senior Citizen (OSCA) because that is where the PWD office is also located. I went there with high hopes that I will get approved but when I walked in the person en-charge wasn't around and someone from OSCA asks me to return after a few hours. So I went to some shops and do window shopping first to kill time.
When I returned after maybe an hour and a half, I am glad that there are someone who can help me with my concerns.

The officer there looked at my application form and told me that they cannot process my application first until I am approved by a government-employed doctor. He also told me that they are having some difficulties identifying what group my kind of illness belongs. He said that they received a lot of complaints from PWD Id holders and pharmacies who would not allow discounts.
I think they are becoming too strict when it comes to who can avail it.
He told me that if a doctor from City Health Office approves my application and sign my form, I can return to them and process my application with them.
I am planning to go to CHO tomorrow morning and meet with Dr. Vergara, who will maybe make a check up on me. I am really hoping that I can get that PWD ID beacuse it can help me lower my medical expenses.
I will keep you posted. Let's see what happens.
