Ferrer filed his resignation only the other day to clear the way for President Duterte to implement a revamp.
Ferrer has left a legacy of professional competence, integrity and honor in PhilHealth. Amidst many issues surrounding the dizzying developments in PhilHealth, I wish to focus on this one official whose only desire was to protect the Fund that assures millions of patients of financial support, and whose only imperative is to cleanse PhilHealth of graft inside and outside the state insurance agency.
A little over a year ago, on June 5, to be exact, President Duterte appointed Dr. Ferrer, as CEO, hit the ground running and immediately ordered a reshuffle of regional vice presidents, as the remarkable start of the cleansing process. At the same time, he led the newly constituted PhilHealth Board to be ready for the passage of the Universal Health Care Law, since such piece of legislation will make a deep impact on the ability of the government to make sure health services will benefit percent of the Filipino population which has breached the million mark.
Ferrer deployed the five-point resiliency plan — to wit: 1 strengthened accounts management; 2 premium increase; 3 reasonable benefit payouts; 4 prudent spending; 5 stronger anti-fraud campaign. The trend continues in As of March, PhilHealth has now posted a net income of P2. To further protect the Fund, Dr. The PhilHealth CEO was not lacking in political and managerial will to enforce the laws and harness the resources and networks available to him.
Ferrer had no illusions of the challenges facing him, and he is fully aware of the members of a few syndicates which are made up of cheating, disloyal, and disgruntled PhilHealth officials who have colluded with hospitals and other health care facilities in the cities and countryside. He focused on major problems in the Visayas and Mindanao, marked by collusions between top PhilHealth regional officials and big hospitals. Already, in coordination with the National Bureau of Investigation and other enforcement agencies, these syndicates would have started disintegrating.
It is now the job of the new PhilHealth president and the new Board to sustain the anti-fraud campaign began by Dr. As of this writing, those found to have defrauded PhilHealth of funds have already been suspended, others are being investigated, a few others will soon be charged in court for criminal offenses.
Aside from sustained enforcement operations conducted outside PhilHealth, Dr. Ferrer led his team to put up a policy regime that strengthens internal systems and procedures that are fool-proof. PhilHealth also has a policy to detect fraudulent, false or incorrect information, deviations from currently accepted standards of practice and treatment protocols, inappropriate referral practices, use of fake, adulterated, misbranded or unregistered drugs; among other attempts to cheat.
Aside from intensified investigations, he stepped up spot checks of health care providers.
Under his watch, PhilHealth set up a dialysis database, validation of multiple claims and of deceased patients. As a result, in the first quarter of alone, the state health insurer has decided on 34 cases against 14 facilities and professionals; and is currently hearing 4, cases more. As of April this year, it also reported completion of 1, investigations even as it continues investigating close to 9, more reports of fraudulent activities where the highest numbers of cases come from Calabarzon, Northern Mindanao, and Davao regions.
In one of his more recent statements, Dr.
Roy Ferrer has surely left a stronger health insurance institution, and is leaving with the trust and confidence of President Duterte of his honesty and integrity. Those who know Dr. Roy, who felt his passion to leave a legacy of a stronger and more responsive PhilHealth, knows that this CEO has given his word to his job exceedingly well.
