According to the provincial government, the plaque of recognition is proof it “has not stopped the enrollment of the Cebuanos for this program contrary to rumors that this was already discontinued by the current administration.”
Earlier, Catan said the Cebu provincial government’s free medical services to constituents proves its good performance to PhilHealth.
Governor Hilario Davide III added that for the last four years, health has been getting a big chunk of the annual budget of the provincial government.
Currently, there are a total of 12 district and four provincial hospitals in Cebu.
