Poe questions PhilHealth Morales’ qualifications, performance: Sen. Grace Poe probes retired BGen. Ricardo Morales’ performance and qualifications as president and chief executive officer of the Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) during Tuesday’s continuation of the Committee of the Whole inquiry, August 11, 2020, in the light of the alleged massive corruption in the state health insurance agency. She also questioned Morales’ medical leave in the midst of the Senate investigation. “If you leave for medical reasons that would not put a closure on your accountability and your performance. If you will be allowed to take a medical leave and not answer the allegations then, we cannot put all these issues at rest,” Poe said. (Screen grab/Senate PRIB)
