Duterte asks Philhealth execs to resign amid ghost dialysis scandal
President Rodrigo Duterte has ordered Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) president Roy Ferrer and Philhealth's board members to submit their courtesy resignations amid allegations of ghost kidney treatments.

Senator-elect Christopher “Bong” Go, Duterte's former top aide, so announced on Monday.

Go said he would ask the President to start a revamp of the Philhealth hierarchy.

Duterte said he would meet Philhealth officials in MalacaƱang on Monday.

Duterte on Saturday bared plans to reorganize the agency but said he did not doubt about Ferrer's integrity and honesty.

He said the Philhealth president was among those who pushed for the prosecution of those involved in the misuse of state health insurance funds.

Duterte earlier ordered the filing criminal complaints against Philhealth executives and employees who allowed the misuse of funds.

He also directed the National Bureau of Investigation to arrest the owners of WellMed Dialysis & Laboratory Center Corp. the healthcare provider involved in the alleged ghost dialysis scam. —NB, GMA News
