THE PHILIPPINE Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) recently signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP) to facilitate the mandatory implementation of the Auto-Credit Payment Scheme (ACPS) for the health insurance claims of PhilHealth-accredited health care institutions (HCIs). The MoA calls on newly-accredited government and private HCIs to open accounts with LBP through which their PhilHealth claims will be paid.
