Inanunsyo ng Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) nitong Biyernes na sasagutin na nito ang lahat ng babayaran para sa treatment ng lahat ng COVID-19 cases hanggang Abril 14, 2020.
Sa statement ni BGen. Ricardo C. Morales, president at CEO ng PhilHealth, “The reason for this accommodation window is due to the novelty and wide range of severity of the disease in the country for which no existing case rate or package based on accepted protocols has yet been established.”
“PhilHealth is confident that by the above mentioned date, more about the behavior of the disease in the Philippines can be learned, a final protocol established and an appropriate case rate developed that will provide adequacy and sustainability to the anti-Covid 19 campaign. Before then, it shall issue a new set of guidelines which include the appropriate case rate based on accepted protocols in dealing with the disease.” pahayag pa nito.
Tinitiyak naman nito na gagampanan nila ang kanilang tungkulin sa kasagsagan ng pandemic upang maibigay ang “Universal Health Care Law of providing adequate health service to all Filipinos when needed.”
