Reconstruct PhilHealth leadership, House committee chairman urge

House Committee on Public Accounts and Anakalusugan Party-List Representative Michael Defensor called for an “overhaul” in the leadership of the said agency.

The congressman said that there needs to be a “systematic change” to rebuild PhilHealth especially given “a pattern of alleged abuses where loopholes can be taken advantage of by the unscrupulous.”

Defensor added that PhilHealth CEO Ricardo Morales and his critic, lawyer Thomson Montes Keith will be invited to the hearings of a moto-propio investigation about issues regarding PhilHealth.

Keith, who served as PhilHealth’s Anti-Fraud Legal Officer, was among the reported PhilHealth employees who were forced to resign due to the widespread corruption happening within the agency.
