The Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) today released PHP 500 million as partial payment to the Philippine Red Cross. It will expedite processing of the remaining balance following strict compliance to government accounting rules and regulations.
“PhilHealth takes exception to the insinuation that it is reckless and is playing on people’s lives. Its prudence in taking charge of its members’ hard-earned contributions is central to the state health insurer. Its exercise of judiciousness is to protect the people and their funds”, PhiHealth President and CEO Atty. Dante A. Gierran affirms.
PhilHealth also recognizes and assures the accredited laboratories conducting the current OFW RT-PCR tests that it will expedite the processing of its payments upon submission of complete documentary requirements.
