Philippine: PhilHealth under probe, denies widespread corruption alleged by resigned officer

Malacañang is investigating the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation after a lawyer resigned from the agency, citing widespread corruption and other irregularities.

President Rodrigo Duterte has ordered Undersecretary Jesus Melchor Quitain to conduct the probe, the Palace said Friday.

Quitain, an official from the Special Assistant to the President’s office, presided over the controversial virtual meeting that PhilHealth had with some Cabinet officials over the agency’s IT system, which reportedly led to the resignation of anti-fraud legal officer Thorrsson Montes Keith.
