MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Health assured senators Wednesday that it was looking into the procurement of ambulances worth P2.5 million per unit after they were again flagged by a senator for coming with allegedly overpriced equipment. 


Sen. Panfilo Lacson first questioned the ambulances procured by DOH under its Heath Facilities Enhancement Program (HEEP) in September for supposedly being overpriced by P1 million each.


DOH defended the ambulances at the time, saying they came with "complete equipment."
