ISN’T it a clever scheme that private health insurance agencies only pay the remaining balance after our Philhealth benefits have been claimed?
I was hospitalized recently and the private insurance compmany had to wait until the Philhealth had already paid off a big portion of my bill. Which brings me to the question that, perhaps, the ones who benefit the most in the institution of the universal health care are the private insurance agences. Their accountability has been minimized because of Philhealth.
