Robredo concerned over Philhealth's new corruption rumors




Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo is concerned with the alleged corruption in the state owned corporation- the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth).
Corruption has resurfaced in Philhealth when PhilHealth anti-fraud officer Thorrsson Montes Keith resigned on July 23, citing “widespread corruption” within the agency.
The Vice President sees the mismanagement of Philhealth will directly affect the medical assistance it provides Filipinos, most particularly from the poor sector.

“Ito nakakabahala kasi ngayon ‘yung panahon na pinakakailangan natin ang PhilHealth kasi marami sa ating ang nagkakasakit,” she said on her radio show.
“Marami sa nagkakasakit hindi kayang bayaran ‘yung cost ng kanyang hospitalization, kanyang medication,” the Vice President added.
Philhealth chief Ricardo Morales has denied all the allegations of graft and corruption, and even challenged Keith to back up his claims by pieces of evidence he can produced.


The President has already called for an investigation of the alleged corruption in the government owned and controlled company. Senate is also planning to conduct its own probe.
