Residents in Pasig can look forward to enhanced healthcare access after the city health office was granted E- Consulta accreditation by the Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth).

Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto said in a Facebook post that Pasig’s city health office was the first in Metro Manila to be granted such an accreditation.

“This is an important step towards the implementation of Universal Health Care,” he said.

“This aims to provide better primary health care services (health centers/clinics), which will also help in decongesting our hospitals,” Sotto added.

The mayor said he and representatives from Philhealth also discussed the pending claims of hospitals and clinics operated by the local government during their meeting.
