Roque said don’t blame him for the OFW premium raise

PRESIDENTIAL spokesperson Harry Roque said he should not be blamed on the raising of the premium contribution of overseas Filipino workers (OFW) to PhilHealth.

 

Although Atty. Roque, the author of the Universal Healthcare Act, said PhilHealth should address the issue and not turn the blame on him.

 

Roque said the Universal Healthcare Act also does not include an increase in PhilHealth premiums.

 

To date, the premium contribution of OFWs has increased from 2.75 to 3%  with a salary of P10, 000 to P60, 000 per month.

 

Therefore, some OFWs have expressed their opposition because they disagree with PhilHealth’s decision.
