Nakatakdang balasahin ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte ang Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) kaugnay sa “ghost” dialysis scandal na kinasasangkutan ng government health insurance firm.

Sa panayam ni Pastor Apollo Quiboloy, sinabi ni Pangulong Duterte na pagbalik nito sa Manila sa susunod na linggo iaanunsyo ang gagawing reshuffle sa mga opisyal ng PhilHealth.

Pero agad namang nilinaw ni Pangulong Duterte na tiyak niyang walang kinalaman sa kontrobersya si Roy Ferrer, ang acting president at CEO ng PhilHealth.

“So when I go back, I’m making the announcement that I am maybe reshuffling the PhilHealth. And I will — itong mga over, nag-overcharge or getting payments for dead or those who are patay na, dead already, certified by the health and yet their name was still in the list getting treatment sa diabetes every week. And so I kind of — was there a kind of checks that you installed? Because if none, then we have fallen short of our duty to really protect the money,” ani Pangulong Duterte.

Kasabay nito, posible rin ipag-utos umano ni Pangulong Duterte sa National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) ang pag-aresto sa mga sangkot sa katiwalian, dalhin sa Malacañang at pagpaliwanagin.

Itatanong daw ni Pangulong Duterte ang katotohanan kundi ay itatapos nito sa ilog (Pasig River].

“And I will maybe order the arrest of — well-being center, ‘yung dialysis… ‘Yung administrative na sinasabi nila, ni Roy kanina that they are initiating investigation and they have 20 days. That’s s*** to me. I’ll tell the NBI: Arrest the idiot. Aand I will bring him to Malacañang and I’ll ask him: Tell me the truth or I’ll throw you to the river. But he will be extricated, we’ll not allow him to be drown.”
