President Rodrigo Duterte has directed the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) to expedite the payment of its obligations to private and government hospitals, Malacañang announced Thursday.

Consequently, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said PhilHealth, a government corporation attached to the Department of Health, approved the application of a Debit-Credit Payment Method to facilitate the settlement of accounts payable to Health Care Facilities (HCFs) amid the ongoing coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

This would ensure continuous delivery of healthcare services, particularly in HCF-eligible regions such as Metro Manila, Batangas, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Pampanga and Rizal, said Roque.

According to the secretary, HCFs must have no Interim Reimbursement Mechanism Fund balance on record.

“They must be attending to Covid-19 patients or providing the SARS-COV-2 testing package and their accreditation is not suspended during the applicable period,” he also said.
