Philhealth to shoulder COVID-19 patient hospital expenses amounting P2.8 million

The Philippine Health Insurance Corporation said on Saturday that it will shoulder the  medical expenses, worth of P2.8 million, of people infected with the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

"So far ang mataas na sasagutin . . . mga P2.8 million. Hindi pa siya nadi-discharge. Sasagutin ng PhilHealth 'yan," said PhilHealth chief Ricardo Morales.

Morales added that Philhealth will not only financially support COVID-19 patients in public hospitals but as well those under treatment on private institutions.

He clarified that the deceased of COVID-19 patients and those who have already paid their hospital bill can reimburse  fully all the expenses.

However, Philhealth will not take responsibility to the patients who underwent self-administered treatment  and medical test and those admitted on non-accredited hospitals.
