Huwag po ninyong hintayin siguro na ang company ang mag initiate po ng physical therapy you need to inform them or at least inqure for the schedule. Importante kasing macheck up if your medical condition is caused by your work in the ship or not or kaya temporary or permanent disability na po. If talagang mapatunayan na ang nasabing illness/sakit ay dahil sa pagtatrabaho mo sa barko may insurance naman po kayo makapag claim naman kayo ng kaukulang benefits sa inyong company provided maestablish po ninyo ang sanhi yan. You can also claim from SSS po for your medical benefits just keep all your medical records po.
