Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said the Department of Justice (DOJ) has rendered its legal opinion over the deal to have the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) conduct COVID-19 virus tests for the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth).

Guevarra said the legal opinion was sent to the the PhilHealth at around noon on Friday (Oct. 23).

““But we’d rather let them disclose the DOJ opinion themselves, if they must,” he said.

Guevarra said PhilHealth President and Chief Executive Officer Dante Gierran sought the legal opinion of the DOJ concerning the memorandum of agreement (MOA) to have the PRC conduct COVID-19 tests to PhilHealth members.

However, the PRC revealed that the PhilHealth incurred total debts amounting to P930 million for the COVID-19 testing.

Due to its need to recover its expenses, PRC has decided to suspend its COVID-19 testing for PhilHealth starting Oct. 15.
