kalalabas lang ng tatay ko sa hospital. 2weeks sya sa duon, paglabas nya kahapon, tumawag ako.. halos lumuhod ako sa iyak..

zero balance ang bill ng tatay ko, sa public hospital sa echague isabela.. pati gamot nya sa hospital nalibre, hindi ko alam kung bakit. dati rati kapag nahohospital ang isang mahirap na gaya ko, kahit hindi pa kami magaling, gusto na naming lumabas, kasi kinakabahan kami sa bill.

putang-inang duterte yan, free medicine pati hospitalization bill namin cleared lahat. mapapamura ako sa kanya. bakit ngayon lang sya naging presidente, kung sana noon pa siguro nakapagpagamot din sana nanay ko at buhay pa sana ngayon.. sensya ka na sa typing ko nagmamadali ako kasi nagpe prepare ako ng dinner ng amo ko.

On the comment section of her post, Sasot posted the redacted hospital bill of the patient.

Take a look.


In a report from GMA News on December 17, 2016, Health secretary Paulyn Jean Rossel-Ubial said during her visit to the Integrated Provincial Hospital Office (IPHO) in Maguindanao that:

There’s no need to hold any card of PhilHealth, just prove to us you are a Filipino, you are entitled to be covered by health benefits, the PhilHealth will take care of the hospital billings and other concerns.

This is first time in [DOH] history ... President Duterte has exerted all efforts and expect changes in the next days ... poor patients will leave hospitals with no billings balance.
Because of this, netizens were thankful to the Duterte administration for granting the wish of many Filipinos to get free healthcare from the government.
