Raised against Ubial were her appointments of officers in charge in Philhealth, which is a prerogative of the President; her supposed inconsistencies during the Zika virus outbreak, and pricey foreign trips with her son.

Before Ubial, the commission had rejected the appointments of Perfecto Yasay Jr.

Malvar Medical Foundation; and Philippine Health Insurance Corp.
