“Medpadala” Assurance of Healthcare Made Accessible and Convenient

Healthcare now more than ever, is at the forefront of our life concerns. Under unpredictable times, and after witnessing uncertainties and natural calamities, we have been made to realize that we need to look after our health especially those of our loved ones. Thanks to the advancement of technology and the wonders and conveniences enabled by mobile devices, we now have the access to healthcare at our finger tips. Distance is becoming less and less of an issue, when it comes to providing the medical needs of those who matter most.

Generika Drugstore, with its continuous goal to innovate and address its customers’ ever-evolving needs, has introduced us to MEDpadala. It is an electronic gift certificate (E-GC) exclusively used for the purchase of medicines and medical supplies at any Generika Drugstore, in-store or online.

Because it is electronic, one receives MEDPadala in the form of a Code and security PIN, on email or SMS, upon purchase. Upon receipt, all one needs to do is send the Code and security PIN to the beneficiary. The beneficiary can immediately use the credits to purchase medicine or medical supply at any Generika Drugstore nationwide or on the Generika Drugstore Mobile App for delivery

Originally with the overseas Filipino workers in mind, Generika developed MEDPadala to allow OFWs to take care of the medicine needs of a loved one even from afar, with assurance that the budget allocation is used for its intended purpose.

While it continues to be relevant to OFWs, the challenges to travel and mobility brought about by the pandemic and other calamities have expanded the benefits of this digital innovation to just about anyone in the Philippines or abroad who wants to take care of the health needs of family and loved ones even from afar.  It can be used to send an allowance to ensure loved ones can regularly take their maintenance medicines, vitamins and/or supplements, or at any time as the need arises.

Atty. Yet Abarca, President of Generika Durgstore, shares, “We are just happy to offer a facility that demonstrates our commitment to improve access to quality and affordable medicine and helps people care for their families and loved ones. With MEDPadala, the peace of mind that your family’s health is assured, despite the distance, is invaluable. 

MEDPadala can be purchased through or at any Generika Drugstore outlet. Purchased online, MEDPadala is available in multiples of P500, with denominations ranging from P500 to P5000. If purchased from a Generika Drugstore, MEDPadala comes in multiple of P100, with amounts ranging from P100 to P2500.

Even as the MEDpadala is bought in denominations, it allows the users flexibility for the credits to be used gradually, in increments, and has no expiry. With these features, users can manage and budget their MEDPadala credits.
