Greg Gasataya intervenes as Bacolod hospital struggles with cash flow

Greg Gasataya used the power of his Congressional office to help this Bacolod City hospital collect its dues from PhilHealth.

The Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital has not been spared from the long repayment protocols of the state insurer, joining even big private hospitals in demanding payments from the agency. The politiko was growing impatient so he intervened.

“We wrote to PhilHealth President and CEO BGen. Ricardo C. Morales to request the settlement of PhilHealth claims by CLMMRH,” he said, sharing that the money being collected is needed ASAP for purchasing extraction kits, test kits, personal protective equipment for medical technicians, and other necessities for the local lab and medical facility.
