Ruffy Biazon thinks sick PhilHealth execs the biggest irony


How can you lead a health agency when you are physically unfit?

Muntinlupa Rep. Ruffy Biazon found fault in the surprise excuse given by PhilHealth President Ricardo Morales to skip this week’s Senate probe by saying he couldn’t head out due to his lymphoma and chemotherapy procedures, while EVP and COO Arnel De Jesus also submitted a medical certificate to justify his looming absence on Tuesday’s hearing.

“It would be an irony for Philhealth to be headed by someone who is unhealthy,” the politiko said, dismayed.
