TRENDING: CONFIRMED:Hospitalization will be free next year for poor Pinoys no need of Philhealth says DOH chief




In 2017, poor Filipinos need not worry about their hospital and medicine bills –these will be free,  Health Department chief said Saturday.  

“There’s no need to hold any card of PhilHealth, just prove to us you are a Filipino, you are entitled to be covered by health benefits, the PhilHealth will take care of the hospital billings and other concerns,” Health secretary Paulyn Jean Rossel-Ubial said Saturday during her visit to the  Integrated Provincial Hospital Office (IPHO) in Maguindanao.

She said this after an increase of the funds being given by the Budget department to cover the hospital needs of the poor and needy Filipinos.

The Health Department, according to her, is now in good financial standing after the Budget Department paid last November the arrears of 32 Billion from the 42 Billion deficits of PhilHealth.

“This the is first time in [DOH] history ... President Duterte has exerted all efforts and expect changes in the next days ... poor patients will leave hospitals with no billings balance,” Ubial added. [source]
