The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) has resumed its Covid-19 testing services after the Philippine Health Insurance (PhilHealth) Corp. paid an initial amount of P500 million of its over P 1.1 billion debt to the humanitarian organization.
“We will test right away,” Gordon said in an online press briefing adding that he already received information from that the check is ready for pick up.
Gordon said that the PRC only thinks of the welfare of the people and to save lives.
He, however warned that the PRC will again stop its testing if the PhilHealth will fail to pay them back again.
“Hindi na ako papayag na lalaki na naman ang utang [I will not allow the the debt will get big again]” he said stressing that he will not risk the organization again.
On October 14, PRC ceased conducting tests chargeable to PhilHealth as the state insurer owed them P1,014,975,500.00 as of October 13, 2020.
