MANILA, Philippines – Inaasahan ng Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) na mararamdaman  na ngayon ng sektor ng paggawa ang pag-unlad ng ekonomiya ng bansa.

Ayon kay Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz, ang 7.8% GDP growth sa 1st quarter ng taon ay posibleng makatulong sa pagpapababa ng unemployment rate sa bansa at sa problema ng mga mangagawa sa informal sectors.

Ang informal sector workers ay mula sa hanay ng mga vendors, jeepney drivers, construction workers at agricultural sector workers na tinatayang nasa 15-milyon.

“Kung lalaki yung wage and salary, sa manufacturing then yan talaga yung may regularity ng income pati security ng job.”

Napagkasunduan kanina ng mga labor group at 23 ahensya ng gobyerno na tulungan ang mga mangagawa sa informal sectors.

Ayon kay Baldoz, bukod sa tulong na pangkabuhayan ay sisikapin din ng gobyerno na maging miyembro ang mga ito ng SSS, PAGIBIG at Philhealth.

“So yung kanilang need for medical insurance, yung kanilang need for employers compensation pag nagtatrabaho sila tapos nagkaroon ng aksidente, nasugatan o nagkaroon ng injury and worst minsan namamatay papaano yung naiiwan nila so ito yung benepisyo na magbibigay sa kanila ng ganitong protection.”

Target ng DOLE na matulungan ang 2.5 million na nasa informal sector sa loob ng tatlong taon. (Rey Pelayo & Ruth Navales, UNTV News)

200 private hospitals to withdraw accreditation from PhilHealth if claims remain unpaid

by UNTV News and Rescue   |   Posted on Wednesday, May 9th, 2018

 

QUEZON CITY, Philippines – The Private Hospitals Association of the Philippines Inc. (PHAPI) said around 200 private hospitals are on the verge of closure and are likely to withdraw accreditation from the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) if the insurance company will not pay all their claims by the end of this month.

“This is a voluntary thing. Kung mag-discredit na kami, wala kami bina-violate na batas kasi voluntary (If we decide to withdraw our accreditation, we wouldn’t be violating any law because it’s voluntary)” according to PHAPI President Dr. Rusty Jimenez.

For its part, PhilHealth admitted that the agency owes private hospitals but they want to make sure that all applications are legitimate.

“We are warning some hospitals and doctors na for years ginawang gatasan ang PhilHealth (who for years have been milking Philhealth) by claiming fraudulent claims. In this administration, we will make sure na mahuhuli namin kayo at mapaparusahan (that you will be arrested and penalized),” said Roberto Salvador, PhilHealth board member for Formal Economy Sector.

Payment of claims is the obligation of PhilHealth’s regional vice presidents.

Recently, PhilHealth Interim President and CEO Dr. Celestina De La Serna reshuffled all of the agency’s vice presidents who had been in their position for decades. But after the reassignment, issues of corruption surfaced against Dela Serna.

From the more than 2,000 hospitals, the country only has about 70,000 bed capacity. This is far short from the World Health Organization’s (WHO) standard bed capacity of 100,000 to accommodate 100 million of the country’s population.

Should the concerned hospitals close, one repercussion is that the country’s hospital bed capacity will dwindle even more. – Mon Jocson / Marje Pelayo | UNTV News & Rescue

PhilHealth chief pleads to Duterte to hear her side over corruption controversy

Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) interim president Dr. Celestina Dela Serna

 

QUEZON CITY, Philippines — Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) interim president Dr. Celestina Dela Serna is asking for President Rodrigo Duterte to hear her side on the reported corruption in the agency.

Presidential Spokesperson Secretary Harry Roque on Monday, May 7, said President Rodrigo Duterte ordered an investigation into Dela Serna’s travel expenses and allowances for 2017 which amounted to P 627,293.064 based on the Commission on Audit’s (COA) report.

Dela Serna reimbursed from Philhealth over P60,000 for the said travels. She maintained that the reimbursements were reasonable.

“Ako ang magbabayad muna (I will pay for it first) then reimburse it. Kaya sabi ko (That’s why I said), all of these went through the accounting process because its a reimbursement, not a direct disbursement of the corporation and this is for the whole of 2017,” Dela Serna explained.

Dela Serna said she already explained her side to COA with regard to the audit report.

She believes some agency officials are behind the allegations against her probably because of the reforms she has implemented within the agency.  She noted that many are questioning her decision to reshuffle 20 of PhilHealth’s regional directors.  However, she maintained that she is just following the directive of the President to conduct internal cleansing on the ranks of PhilHealth.

“Kung lumulutang man ito (ay) dahil mayroon akong nasasagasaan. Ganoon yata talaga sa government… kung gagawa ako ng changes, ito (ang) magiging buhay ko which is ito ang nangyayari ngayon sa tingin ko,” Dela Serna lamented.

(This is happening because I may have offended people. Maybe that’s really how it is in government….that if I introduce change, this is how my life will turn out; maybe that’s what’s happening here.)

Meanwhile, Malacañang assured a fair investigation on the matter.

“Talagang bibigyan po ng importansya ang paglilinis sa hanay ng PhilHealth,” Roque said. – Mon Jocson / Marje Pelayo | UNTV News & Rescue
