MANILA, Philippines – The Senate blue ribbon committee chaired by Richard Gordon investigates the allegations of corruption in the Department of Health (DOH).
The probe was based on Senator Panfilo Lacson’s privilege speech where he raised conflict of interest issues against Health Secretary Francisco Duque III.
In the same speech, Lacson also alleged that the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (Philhealth) continued to pay WellMed Dialysis Center even after its accreditation was suspended because of its involvement in a scam.
