    LUCENA CITY: A neophyte lawmaker is urging President Benigno Aquino 3rd to sign into law a bill recently approved by the Senate mandating health insurance coverage for all senior citizens in the country. Rep. Angelina Tan (Quezon Fourth District) lauded the approval of Senate Bill 712 which seeks to provide all senior citizens a mandatory PhilHealth coverage regardless of their economic status and removes the limitation under Republic Act 9994 or the Expanded Senior Citizens Act of 2010 that covers only indigent senior citizens. “I urge President Aquino to sign the bill into a law to fully realize the hopes of all the elderly Filipinos to be more secure in their health and medical needs in their most vulnerable years,” said Tan, who is the principal author of House Bill 4593 earlier approved on the third and final reading in the House of Representatives.
