INAMIN ni PhilHealth president at CEO Ricardo Morales na ang “systemic” fraud sa ahensya ay hindi mareresolba sa loob ng isang taon o kahit sa mga susunod pang panahon.
“Fraud has always been in the system as it has always been in all similar health systems in the world,” diin ni Morales.
“The problem is systemic and cannot be solved in one year, maybe not even in three years,” dagdag nito.
Aminado rin si Morales na namali siya sa kanyang pagkalkula na sa pagkuha ng IT system up upang maresolba ang katiwalian.
“One year was not enough and the budget was inadequate for the job. The internal anti-fraud mechanism were inadequate and inappropriate to address the internal weaknesses, the resources necessary for the transformation of an organization of this size and the mission given to it are not found within the organization,” giit nito.
“From the management, in all humility, we commit hard work, dedication, transparency and full cooperation in this investigation and all agencies so together we can achieve the goals of universal healthcare,” paniniguro ng Philhealth President.
