There is ‘hope for reform’ in PhilHealth, says gov’t corp council


MANILA – There is “hope for reform” in embattled state insurer Philippine Health Insurance Corp (PhilHealth), the agency tasked to manage government corporations said Wednesday.

The Governance Council for GOCCs (GCG), authorized to reorganize all government-owned and controlled corporations (GOCCs), has created an ad hoc committee to look into PhilHealth and is coordinating with government’s task force investigating its supposed anomalies, its chairman Samuel Dagpin Jr. said.
