2023 Health Emergency Allowance

Requested from DOH by G. Hernandez at 09:51 AM on Jun 09, 2023.
Purpose: Policy implementation
Date of Coverage: 01/01/2023 - 06/09/2023
Tracking no: #DOH-735247200747

Hernandez 09:51 AM, Jun 09, 2023

Accordingly, DoH Secretary Herbosa assured yesterday that he will prioritize the disbursement of HEA. It has been months already that up until now we still have not received our 2023 HEA. May I know if there's an order (DO) for the release of 2023 HEA for various hospitals and may I request for that said document. 

Thank you.
