MANILA -- The Kilusang Mayo Uno (KMU) urged the Supreme Court on Wednesday to issue a temporary restraining order against the increase in the premium contributions of PhilHealth effective February.

The militant group said the government should subsidize health care services of Filipinos.

According to the KMU, it is the right of every citizen to receive health care, which is contrary to what the PhilHealth is set to implement. Report from Robert Mano, dzMM
