What will happen to the lost Php15 billion? Pres. Rodrigo Duterte to start PhilHealth overhaul

Netizens ask the administration for any updates about the cases of the people involved in the PhilHealth issue.

  • They also mentioned about the allegedly lost Php15 billion and the administrations’ plans to solve it.
  • Duterte then said that he is considering the abolishment of the agency.

President Rodrigo Duterte has announced that he’s going to start with the complete overhaul of the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) after the huge corruption allegations against its top executives.

Now netizens are questioning what will happen to the 15 billion that was allegedly stolen from the agency and how will they make sure that the right people involved will be apprehended.

In his national address on September 28, the President said that he will try to reorganize the agency and will consider all its current personnel resigned.

“I will try to begin tomorrow shaking the tree sa PhilHealth. Balak ko mag-reorganize and impose upon them a single line of authority,” he stated.

“Hindi na puwede na itong mga tao na ito, they are already entrenched (sic) na. Wala, walang mangyari. Talagang either I’m going to revamp, consider everybody resigned there.”

He added that it will be his first attempt to fix the agency and will push through with his earlier plan to completely abolish the company. The reason being is that the privatization of PhilHealth is no longer an option as the government currently has insufficient funds.

“I am going to propose to Congress to abolish… Kung i-privatize mo naman, susmaryosep, walang pera. Huwag mo sabihin ng mga kapitalista sa insurance: Kami ang magbayad? Wala kayong pondo.”

Previously, Duterte has approved a task force recommendation to file cases against PhilHealth officials who are allegedly involved in corruption. This includes its former chief Ricardo Morales.
