PhilHealth senior VP for legal sector resigns amid corruption mess
MANILA, Philippines — Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) senior vice president for legal sector Rodolfo del Rosario Jr. has resigned from his post amid alleged corruption in the agency.
In a text message to INQUIRER.net, Del Rosario said he has tendered his irrevocable resignation effective on Monday, August 24.
“Yes, I tendered my irrevocable resignation effective August 24,” he said.
PhilHealth is currently under fire following claims of massive corruption within the agency.
Among allegations of corruption raised involve the procurement of alleged overpriced IT equipment; a supposedly questionable release of funds under the corporation’s Interim Reimbursement Mechanism (IRM); and the alleged manipulation of the corporation’s financial status.
PhilHealth president and CEO Ricardo Morales is also set to file his resignation this Wednesday, following the call of President Rodrigo Duterte.
