Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday said the P231.9 million claims of the 11 provincial government-run hospitals denied by the Philippine Health Insurance Corp. are being addressed.
The denied claims just involve some paperwork deficiencies that can be complied with, he said.
PhilHealth regional vice president L ourdes Diocson said earlier that only P20,326,330in claims were filed by the 11 Negros Occidental provincial government-owned hospitals that are currently in process and pending payment.
Claims denied and returned to the 11 hospitals total 21,090 that will amount to P231,990,000 if computed at P11,000 average value per claim, she said.
These hospital claims are those that were returned to the health care institution because of deficiencies found during evaluation, Diocson said.
These claims will be reprocessed once refiled and deficiencies and requirements are complied with, she said.*CPG
