Netizen shares proof that Duterte admin already implements free hospitalization and medicine
On December 18, 2016, DOH Sec. Paulyn Jean Rossel announced free hospitalization for poor Pinoys in 2017 raising the eyebrows of Duterte’s critics.
Today, January 26, 2017, an OFW informed blogger Sass Rogando Sasot about her father’s recent trip to a government hospital.
According to the Pinay OFW, her father spent two weeks in a government hospital in Echague Isabela.
Upon discharged, the OFW claimed her family did not spend a single centavo including the medicine.
The OFW remarked that in the past, when you get sick, you want to go home even before you are cleared for discharge because of the hospital bills.
The OFW joked that after hearing the good news back home, she cursed Duterte for taking care of her father’s hospital bills.
THE OFW also asked why Duterte did not run earlier for president. If he did, perhaps her mother was still alive today because of Duterte’s free hospitalization policy.
Below is the full text of the OFW’s letter to Sass Rogando Sasot:
Ms Sass, ofw ako…Lalalabas lang ng tatay ko sa hospital. 2 weeks sya sa duon, paglabas nya kahapon, tumawag ako.. halos lumuhod ako sa iyak..
Zero balance ang bill ng tatay ko, sa public hospital sa echague isabela.. pati gamot nya sa hospital nalibre, hindi ko alam kung bakit. dati rati kapag nahohospital ang isang mahirap na gaya ko, kahit hindi pa kami magaling, gusto na naming lumabas, kasi kinakabahan kami sa bill.Putang-inang duterte yan, free medicine pati hospitalization bill namin cleared lahat. mapapamura ako sa kanya. bakit ngayon lang sya naging presidente, kung sana noon pa siguro nakapagpagamot din sana nanay ko at buhay pa sana ngayon.. sensya ka na sa typing ko nagmamadali ako kasi nagpe prepare ako ng dinner ng amo ko.
