Gov. Kaka Bag-ao meets with PhilHealth officials


The Politiko and the team discussed the upcoming plans to build a satellite office.

Dinagat Islands Governor Kaka Bag-ao, together with the Provincial Health Officer, met with Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) Acting Regional Vice President Michael Jibson Hernandez at the Provincial Governor’s Office.

The group discussed the plan to build a satellite office of PhilHealth in the province to expedite the processing of its citizen partners to boost the reach of claimants in Dinagat Islands which had been prevalent due to lack of communication at the main office. The said project includes the registration of indigent and non-indigent in seven (7) municipalities, to which the Governor enthusiastically agreed.

Municipal Health Officers (MHO) and Barangay Health Officers (BHW) will form and mobilize a team to start it as soon as possible.
