Tag: #Circular No. 2021-0013
Senator Risa Hontiveros has filed a resolution urging the Senate to investigate the issues hounding the Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) and private hospitals which stemmed from issuance of a circular that suspends payment claims that are subject to investigation.
The House Committee on Health on Tuesday, August 24 called on the Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) to review and possibly suspend its controversial circular that calls for a temporary suspension of claims payment for hospitals who would be found having fraudulent claims.
Senator Christopher “Bong” Go on Sunday urged the Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) to provide hospitals some leeway and postpone the implementation of its Circular No. 2021-0013 which hospital and health provider groups believe conveyed the state insurance agency’s “mistrust” towards them.
