Baguio City Representative Mark Go said the programs of Philhealth are “good” despite the allegations of corruption within the agency.
President Rodrigo Duterte earlier said he will abolish or privatize Philhealth because of these allegations.
Go also called on Philhealth contributors not to be discouraged.
“The program is good,” he said.
“Those who are voluntarily paying their contributions should not be discouraged because the government is addressing the issues,” Go added.
