Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (Philhealth) Executive Vice President Arnel De Jesus will be unable to attend the August 11 Senate hearing on the alleged corruption within the agency, citing an “unforeseen medical emergency.”

In a letter addressed to Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III dated August 7, De Jesus attached a copy of his medical certificate from the Asian Hospital and Medical Center in Muntinlupa City.

The medical certificate showed he has been confined at the hospital since August 5. He is diagnosed with acute coronary syndrome, hypertensive heart disease, and diabetes type 2, among others.

De Jesus, 61, is scheduled to undergo an angiogram, angioplasty, and pulse generator replacement.

On Saturday (August 8), Philhealth President and CEO Ricardo Morales also informed the Senate Committee of the Whole, through his doctor, of his absence at the August 11 hearing.

Morales’ doctor said he advised the Philhealth chief to take a leave of absence as he is undergoing chemotherapy for lymphoma.

Sotto said he is open to let Morales take part in the hearing through video teleconferencing if he cannot be physically present due to his health condition.
