A possible revamp is expected in the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth).
Several PhilHealth officials are currently under investigation for alleged corruption within the state-run health insurance agency.
“Iyan po ay isang possibility bagamat ang PhilHealth po ay binuo po iyan ng isang batas,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said during a virtual presser Thursday.
But, Roque pointed out that the reorganization PhilHealth due to alleged corruption issues must adhere to laws.
“The reorganization cannot also violate the law, so it has to comply with it,” he said.
Several lawmakers, including Senators Franklin Drilon and Richard Gordon, are pushing for a top-to-bottom revamp of PhilHealth to ensure that only component and honest individuals are appointed to the agency.
