3 NegOcc dialysis centers suspended


The Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) has suspended the PhilHealth accreditations of three dialysis centers in Negros Occidental.

Janimhe Jalbuna, head of PhilHealth 6 Public Affairs Unit, urged patients to go to dialysis centers accredited by PhilHealth so that they can be reimbursed for their treatment.

The suspensions were issued because of dialysis claims for patients who have already expired, said Jalbuna. (

They will recommend the filing of charges if fraud is proven.

Jalbuna withheld the names of the three dialysis centers pending validation of the claims in question.

The temporary suspensions are expected to end in February.
