There’s no point dragging this out if the government knows they owe the money.

Quezon City Rep. Alfred Vargas wants PhilHealth to send the P930 million it owes to the Philippine Red Cross for payment as soon as possible, with fellow Filipinos already reeling from the delays since the free testing has been stopped.

“Philhealth should prioritize payment of its 1B debt for COVID19 testing to the PRC as more returning OFWs become stranded in MM due to testing delays,” the politiko said.

“This is a fiercely urgent issue. Even a 1 day delay in the conduct of tests could reverse the gains we have have achieved so far,” he added.
