“Yes, I tendered my irrevocable resignation effective August 24,” he said.

PhilHealth is currently under fire following claims of massive corruption within the agency.

FEATURED STORIES

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.

It was earlier reported that the President asked him to resign over his health condition. He is undergoing chemotherapy for his lymphoma and is currently on medical leave.
