The contest is divided into four levels – the division, regional, area and national levels.

PhilHealth National Quiz Bee will be one of the main activities during the 25th PhilHealth anniversary celebration next year.
It was institutionalized because PhilHealth is now integrated in the MAPEH subject for all Grade 10 students nationwide, both in public and private schools alike. PHOTOS COURTESY OF PHILHEALTH 10
