PhilHealth-Abra Office paid P30 million Philhealth claims to PhilHealth accredited hospitals in Abra. However there are still 2,000 claims under process for the year 2018.

Local Health Insurance Officer Leonora A. Sobrevilla said the cause of delay for PhilHealth claims in 2018 is due to system failure on electronic transmissions.

Coping with online processing, PhilHealth-Abra has released P4.4 million health claims from January to March 2019.
