The director of Bulacan Medical Center Medical refuted the allegations of some netizens that they are altering Covid-19 results in order to get claims from the controversial Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth).

“Never ginawa ito. Ang tinitingnan namin ay ang pangangailangan talaga ng pasyente. Sobra naman ‘yung alegasyon, sa dami naming trabaho para lang sa PhilHealth gagawin ‘yan?” said Dr. Hjordis Marushka Celis.

“Alam mo ang pasyente hindi nauubos, usually nandito pa ang mga high risk, pero ang mga healthcare worker, doctor, consultants ‘pag may exposure, quarantined din, nauubos, kinakapos tayo sa magdu-duty, tapos ‘yun pa ang iisipin namin, walang katotohanan,” Celis emphasized.

She also added that the BMC is open for real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) testing and they may call the Bulacan Molecular Diagnostic Laboratory for collection appointment through telephone number 044-7910630 local 139 or cellphone number 0912-1232432 or email them at bmcmolecularlab@yahoo.com; or visit their Facebook BMC- Bulacan Molecular Diagnostic Laboratory.

Fees for patients with Philhealth is P3,800 and P4,800 for non-Philhealth member patients.

Meanwhile, Bulacan Governor Daniel Fernando reiterated the importance of following health protocols.

“Ito po ay parang tulong na natin sa isa’t isa. Sa panahong ito, iwasan na muna natin ang pakikipag-socialize, kapag napababa natin ang mga kaso sa atin, na-control, unti-unti makakabangon tayo,” he said.

“Lalo ngayon tag-ulan na, maglalabasan na ang iba pang sakit na sa simula parang Covid-19, kailangan talaga sagad ang pag-iingat. Hindi naman ito kayang solusyunan ng mag-isa, kailangan tulung-tulong, otherwise masasayang lang lahat ng efforts ng gobyerno, ng mga fronliner,” Fernando stressed.

As of September 21, there are 4,389 confirmed cases, 2, 618 recoveries and 90 deaths in the province.
