    matagal na po akong nagstop magwork 10 yrs na, ngayon may work na po ako ulit. pano kung gusto kong ituloy yung philhealth ko? wala po akong id at philhealth number.

  2. Nors on February 13th, 2013 9:12 pm

    Hi roda, visit a Philhealth branch with your ID, fill up the registration form, pay and then request for your Philhealth ID. If you have no time yet to go to Philhealth, you can enroll online at philhealth.gov.ph, wait for your Philhealth no. to be emailed to you, and then pay at Bayad Center or SM Business Center. Xerox and keep your receipts.

  3. russel on February 28th, 2013 7:04 pm

    hi good evening ask kulang kung magkano na ang monthly sa self employed

  4. Nors on March 1st, 2013 4:14 pm

    Hi russel, 150 pesos per month. If you’re a professional earning more than 25k a month, the premium is 300 pesos per month.

  5. Stephanie Marie Funtanar on March 7th, 2013 8:02 pm

    hi good evening…i just want to ask if i could still avail the maternity benefits kasi may mga months na di ko nabayaran hahabulin ko nalang sana before my due date this coming June 2013, and i will pay for those months na di ko nahulugan para makapag avail ako ng benefits.Is it still ok for the late payment???

    Thanks and i hope i’ll get a response from you coz’ i really need an information about this matter…

  6. Nors on March 8th, 2013 12:36 pm

    Hi Stephanie, the past months that you can pay this March are Jan and Feb; you can no longer pay for months in 2012. You go to Philhealth with your Philhealth no., IDs and about 900 or 1800 pesos and ask about Individually Paying Contract (IPC); under this program, you need only to have paid 3 of the 6 months prior to your delivery month,which is June.

  7. Stephanie Marie Funtanar on March 8th, 2013 4:26 pm

    Thanks for the information, i am just confused coz’ based on my research about the maternity benefits, i need to pay at least 9 mos.prior to my delivery month. Ex. my due date is on June 2013, it is said in the website that i need to have 9 mos.contribution from June 2012 to May 2013.
    And it is also said there that the 3 payments of the 6 months prior to my delivery month is only for employed members but im not working anymore…Hope you could help me understand this issue.thank you so much…

  8. Nors on March 8th, 2013 10:33 pm

    Hi Stephanie, you understood everything correctly. If you don’t have the 9-month requirement, check out the new program called IPC. Since I see that you’re a good researcher, here’s the IPC I told you about in my first response: https://sites.google.com/site/informationphilippines/philhealth/individually-paying-contract

  9. Lyn Si on March 9th, 2013 8:36 am

    I’m an individually paying member and opted to pay 1 time payment for 1yr for the past 2 years at bayad centers. I just want to know where I can check if my payments has been posted. Do i need to submit the receipts of my payments to a Philhealth office or is there a way I can just check online?

  10. Nors on March 9th, 2013 2:34 pm

    Hi Lyn, sorry, Philhealth doesn’t have yet an online system for checking contributions. You can visit the nearest Philhealth branch with your IDs and receipts and ask for your MDR and Philhealth ID.

  11. Neris on March 15th, 2013 2:08 pm

    Just for info sharing for individually paying members. You can check premium payments via Philhealth’s call center (02) 441 7442. They will be requiring your philhealth number. Payments done in Bayad Centers are posted 3 weeks to 1 month. Hope this helps.

  12. Nors on March 15th, 2013 9:36 pm

    Hi Neris, thanks a lot for taking time to share helpful info. best regards

  13. Raymart on March 19th, 2013 6:03 pm

    Hi mam just want to ask what will i do if i remit lack of what is required by the new Premium contribution CY 2013..example Ive only paid and remitted 75.00 but now the lowest contribution is 87.50. What procedure will i do?,,thanks..

  14. Nors on March 20th, 2013 7:02 am

    Hi Raymart, are you employed? Because you are mentioning 75 and 87.50. If you’re employed, you should talk with your employer to correct any underpayment. For voluntary members, the old premium was 100 pesos, and since Jan 2013, the new premium is 150 pesos.

  15. Raymart on March 20th, 2013 8:36 am

    I’m sorry ma’am for not specifying my question. Yes i am employed and my job is to pay and remit the government dues for company. I underpaid the contribution because i based the PHIC premium in the old schedule. What will i do to correct the payment and remittance.Thanks…

  16. Nors on March 20th, 2013 2:23 pm

    Hi Raymart, I know now why you had underpayments; Philhealth did not update some of their webpages — the old schedule is still in their Employer page! I don’t know the exact procedure in correction, but I think you fill-up again the Remittance Report Form, writing the difference for each employee, and writing the overall total. Then together with your previous form and receipt, you go to your Philhealth branch and ask the proper procedure for correction. Best regards

  17. Raymart on March 21st, 2013 7:16 am

    Thank you very much ma’am for your big help. More power to you ma’am.

  18. hazel on March 25th, 2013 9:30 pm

    hi! ask ko lang po kung pwede magbayad ng philhealt contribution sa mga bayad centers? 3 years na po kasi ako nag-stop magbigay ng contribution and gusto ko po sana ituloy ang pagbigay ng contribution.

  19. Nors on March 25th, 2013 10:56 pm

    Hi hazel, yes, you can pay at Bayad Centers. Bring your Philhealth no.

  20. Arwin on March 30th, 2013 1:43 pm

    hi, i just want to ask about the contribution my wife made. shes on volunteer contribution, the bayad center near our place told us that we should pay in advance the 2nd quarter. We already made our payment for the 1st quarter, is there a new rule that the payment should be made in advance meaning we will be paying the 1st and 2nd quarter this march? thanks a lot.

  21. Nors on March 30th, 2013 11:05 pm

    Hi Arwin, no, you don’t have to pay in advance. The payment deadline for every quarter is the last day of the quarter. Maybe the Bayad Center teller was just suggesting that you pay in advance.

  22. lovely on April 9th, 2013 7:55 am

    Hi, i’m a self employed and i already did my 300 pesos contibution for Jan-March 2013, before i advice that it should be 450 pesos now..what should i do? thanks

  23. cathy on April 9th, 2013 8:35 am

    i just want to ask if i could still avail the maternity benefits kasi may mga months na di ko nabayaran hahabulin ko nalang sana before my due date this coming Oct 2013, and i will pay for those months na di ko nahulugan para makapag avail ako ng benefits.Is it still ok for the late payment???
    Thanks and i hope i’ll get a response from you coz’ i really need an information about this matter…
    based on my research about the maternity benefits, i need to pay at least 9 mos.prior to my delivery month
    And it is also said there that the 3 payments of the 6 months prior to my delivery month is only for employed members but i am now self empoyed. Could you hel pe with this?

  24. Nors on April 9th, 2013 11:45 am

    Hi lovely, did you pay the 300 pesos last year when the rate was still 100 peso per month? If yes, then your advance payment is valid.
    But if you paid this year, you should pay an additional 150 pesos, preferably at the payment center where you paid so they can correct their receipt. I’m puzzled why the payment center did not advise you of the new rate.

  25. Nors on April 9th, 2013 11:53 am

    Hi cathy, sorry, but we’re already in the month of April, so you can no longer pay for the months of Jan to Mar 2013 and for last year. If your due is Oct 2013, count 12 months backward — that’s Oct 2012 to Sep 2013 — you should have paid 9 months of this period. You can call Philhealth and ask if the new program Individual Policy Contract is being offered again, (it was deferred recently), so you can apply. Under this program, you can avail.

  26. rizalyn on April 10th, 2013 2:52 pm

    Good day po
    ask ko lang po kung itutuloy ko yun contribution ko sa philhealth na stop for almost 8 years still the same number pa din po ba ng philhealth ang gagamitin ko at kung mag babayad ako ngayon as voluntary member how much po ang babayaran ko at makaka avail po ba ako ng maternity benefits ang due date ko po ay this coming Nov 10, 2013
    thank you po..

  27. Nors on April 10th, 2013 11:06 pm

    Hi rizalyn, since your last payment was 8 years ago, you need to go to Philhealth with your IDs and fill up a member registration form. Check “FOR UPDATING”. If they ask later on, tell them you don’t know if you have a Philhealth no. The rate is 150 pesos per month. What you can pay are for April to Oct (BEFORE month of delivery), which total only 7 months — not enough for the 9-month requirement for maternity. Ask if you can apply for the new program Individual Policy Contract (IPC). Under IPC, you can avail. But they suspended this temporarily, but ask if it’s again being offered.

  28. Mel Leonardo on April 23rd, 2013 11:33 am

    hi, can i pay my contribution at BDO or BPI? what form should i use to document the payment? I am an individually paying member. Thanks

  29. Nors on April 23rd, 2013 11:15 pm

    Hi Mel, BDO has its own Payment slip, but ask if they have the Philhealth Premium Payment Slip. BPI does not accept over the counter payments (only e-pay from employers). You can also pay at Bayad Center or SM Business Centers — these have the PPPS form.

  30. RoyRoy Gulayan on May 4th, 2013 11:59 am

    hi, i just want to ask lang po. Kaka-apply ko lang po as Individually Paying Philhealth member through online services ng Philhealth few days ago. Gusto ko na po sana magbayad pwde po kaya sa LBC Express magbayad? Tsaka po dun sa schedule of payments ng Philhealth website nakalagay po every March 31 ang deadline. Pwede pa po kaya ako magbayad ngayon? Ilang # of monthly contribution po ba ang required para maka-avail ako sa mga benefits? Salamat po….

  31. Nors on May 5th, 2013 7:06 am

    Hi Royroy, did Philhealth send you your Philhealth no.? If yes, you can pay at LBS or Bayad Center. Requirement to avail: payment of 3 of the 6 months BEFORE month of hospitalization (ordinary illnesses). Payment of 9 of the 12 months BEFORE month of hospitalization (for surgeries and maternity)

  32. Jeddahline barro on May 12th, 2013 10:23 pm

    Ask ko lang po ngyon year po ito d pa po ako nakabayad, pag po ba magbabayad ako pati po ung past month babayaran ko pa? Salamat po

  33. Nors on May 13th, 2013 6:21 am

    Hi Jeddahline, merong payment deadlines ang Philhealth. If you pay monthly, the deadline is the last day of the month. If you pay quarterly, the deadline is the last day of the quarter. For the month of May, the deadline is May 31. If you want to pay for April, pay the whole 2nd quarter — 450 pesos.

  34. crystel on May 20th, 2013 3:06 pm

    i continuesly payed for about 2yrs as individual paying quarterly.but this year,im still not paying even the 1st quarter..can i still pay it now with 2nd quarter as semi-annual?if not,is there other way i can do?pls help me regarding this matter..i really dont know what to do.

  35. Nors on May 22nd, 2013 4:10 am

    Hi crystel, I’m sure you can still pay for 2nd quarter. But for the 1st quarter, malabo na kasi lumagpas na rin yong paying period for the grace period. Pero punta ka pa rin sa Philhealth at makiusap…baka lang merong paraan na hindi ko alam.

  36. lito on June 4th, 2013 5:10 pm

    Hi, i’ve just been hired by a company and my task is to update all government reports. I’ve discovered that though they have a report lists of Philhealth RF1 and transmittal, their is no received stamp from Philhealth and this is from 2011. I tried to have it receive but Philhealth wont accept hardcopies with more than 10 employees and furthermore PIN indicated are mostly sss numbers. It is a lot of work if generate a new one specially if majority on the list are no longer connected and not everyone has a PIN. Kindly advise. Thanks.

  37. carlos mendoza on June 9th, 2013 9:48 am

    Hi carlos, yes, your payments are all on time. All valid. Advance pa nga yong March payment mo for 2nd quarter.

  40. Nors on June 10th, 2013 6:53 am

    Hi joanne, sorry hindi mo na mahabol yong 9 monthly premiums na required na nabayaran BEFORE panganganak. This June, ang puede mo na lang bayaran are Apr to Sep = 6 months, kulang ng 3 months. Ask others too. Take care

  42. Nors on June 13th, 2013 2:35 pm

    Hi gie, this June, ang puede mong bayaran na past months ay April May June (2nd quarter). Ang payment deadline for every quarter ay the last day of the quarter. Hindi na puedeng bayaran ang 1st quarter. Have a nice day too

  43. rocky on June 13th, 2013 5:41 pm

    pag po nagbayad sa bayad center, ano pong fifillup-an ma form? meron na po ba silang form doon? o hihingin pa po kami sa philhealth ng contribution payment form?

  44. Nors on June 13th, 2013 9:10 pm

    Hi rocky, merong payment slip ang Bayad Center, maliit na kapiraso lang. Bring your Philhealth no.

  45. jamil on June 18th, 2013 8:54 pm

    Hi ngbyad kasi ko last april 2012 to dec 2012. Tas nkalimutan ko n mgbyad hngng ngyung june 2013. Pwede ko b byaran yung buong 2013 na 12mos?

  47. islafilipina on June 19th, 2013 6:16 pm

  48. Nors on June 20th, 2013 12:33 pm

    Hi islafilipina, sorry pero kapag maternity dapat you should have paid for 9 months BEFORE month of delivery. What you can pay this June are Apr to Oct — 7 months lang, kulang ng 2 months. Ask others too pare sure na sure.

  49. ramil on June 23rd, 2013 6:49 pm

    I’m a graduating student, can I apply now for a PhilHealth Number? Thanks

  50. roxanne on June 24th, 2013 5:18 pm

    hi po ask ko lang po sana kung pwede ko pa ituloy ung paghuhulog sa phil. health ko as a individually member. dati po aq magwowok den magstop na po ako kasi may sarili naa ako business.

  51. Nors on June 25th, 2013 8:25 am

    Hi ramil, yes, if you’re older than 21, or younger but not a dependent of anyone. You can register at philhealth.gov.ph. Click “online services”, then “Register”.

  52. Nors on June 25th, 2013 1:19 pm

    Hi roxanne, yes. So you have a copy of your MDR, and maybe your Philhealth ID if already available, register as Individual Payor at a Philhealth branch or a Philhealth desk office at Robinsons. Bring your ID. Minimum payment is for 1 quarter = 450 pesos.

  53. ramil on June 25th, 2013 9:02 pm

    ok thank you. I thought I can get my PhilHealth Number now to lessen the burden after the graduation when I apply to work.

  54. Jeanlou C. Saguban on June 28th, 2013 1:13 pm

    Hi Good day!
    My name is Jean.
    I resigned from my former company May 29, 2013. Unemployed po ako now. Until April lang po ako nakaltasan ng former company ko. May I know kung magkano pa dapat bayaran ko ngayong quarter? Or do I need apply again or change my membership from employed to self-employed and pay the 450 contribution? thanks..

  55. Nors on June 29th, 2013 9:59 am

    Hi Jeanlou, your deadline for paying May and June is today or tomorrow (find a payment center open on weekends), 150 per month. Bring your Philhealth no. Just check or write Individual Payor/Voluntary on the payment slip. Keep your receipt.

  56. Chiri on June 29th, 2013 11:59 pm

    hello. tanong ko lang po. employer po kasi ako. pwede po bang magbayad sa bayad center or sa banko kahit hindi invidually paying or voluntary? o kapag employer, doon po mismo talaga sa philhealth branch?

  57. Nors on June 30th, 2013 9:20 pm

    Hi Chiri, yes, basta meron silang Philhealth Premium Payment Slip, kasi yon naman ang instructions ng Philhealth. Basta you file the Remittance Report Form on or before 15th of the following month; meron daw banks that have drop boxes.
    Pero nagtanong ako kanina sa Bayad Center Festival Mall, individual payor/OFW lang daw ang tinatanggap nila.

  58. kate on July 2nd, 2013 12:27 pm

    I was unemployed this june, can i pay for 1 month only? Can i still pay for that month since its already july? How much will i pay? Thanks.

  59. Nors on July 2nd, 2013 7:36 pm

    Hi kate, sorry you’re already late for June. Payment deadline is the last day of the quarter (if payment is quarterly) or last day of the month (if payment is monthly). Try paying at a Philhealth branch if they will accept. Ask them if you can exercise your grace period.

  60. rowena mendoza on July 7th, 2013 8:08 am

    praise be to God! i was then a government employee for 13 yrs thus my contribution was salary deducted..then i resigned in 2005. in 2012 of January i “enrolled” as an individual payer. i just wonder what happened to my contributions while i was in the govt service? is it still valid? or is there any significance or even any effect shifting from a salary deducted contribution as an employee to an individual payer?
    please enlighten me on this. more power

  61. vivar, bernardo insorio on July 10th, 2013 6:38 pm

    Hindi ko po alam kung saan ako mag tatanong sa problema ko sa aking philhealth kung active pa o saan ako magbabayad from binan laguna

  62. Nors on July 13th, 2013 6:10 pm

    Hi rowena, your Philhealth contributions when you were employed will ensure your Free Lifetime membership with Philhealth when you turn 60 years old. Lifetime membership requires 120 contributions. Your current Individual-Payor membership will be used for your medical needs before age 60. More power to you too

  63. Jhona Reyes on July 15th, 2013 12:17 pm

    Hi,

    we paid a premium payment thru bdo,we lost the receipt,what are the other options to retrieve the lost receipt..because are payment is not posted.is there any other way..?

    thanks,.God bless..

  64. Nors on July 16th, 2013 3:23 am

    Hi Jhona, perhaps BDO has not yet remitted your payment. Call BDO 631-8000 if they’re retrieving payment receipts for a fee. God bless too.

  65. vicky on July 29th, 2013 7:14 pm

    hi good day ask ko lang po kung pwedeng online payment thru e-banking. at philhealthcare po nkalagay sa bpi ano po ba dapat.

  66. joelyn on July 29th, 2013 8:13 pm

    Good day. Ask ko if pwede na ako magbatad Ng philhealth contribution ko this end of July for month of July – December. Hindi po ba mag aacept Ng payment if I will pay for month of january-December. Thanks

  67. Nors on July 31st, 2013 7:57 am

    Hi vicky, I checked my BPI Express Online at hindi naman listed ang Philhealth for payment. Ang BPI merong e-pay system but it’s for employers. It’s better if you pay at Bayad Center, so you’ll have a hard copy of your payment — for use when needed.

  68. Nors on July 31st, 2013 7:59 am

    Hi joelyn, yes you can pay for July to Dec now. Sorry you can no longer pay for Jan to June.

  69. cha on August 1st, 2013 8:00 am

    gud day po. just want to know if i can still avail my maternity benefits this sept2013 although i paid alreday the april-dec2013 contribution & missed the 1st quarter payment (Jan-Mar2013)?

  70. Nors on August 1st, 2013 7:50 pm

    Hi cha, Apr to Aug is only 5 months, kulang sa 9 months, so sori, hindi nala-avail. Please ask others too. Eligibility for Philhealth

  71. marge on August 8th, 2013 8:38 am

    Hi.ask ko lang due date ko this aug2013…last contribution ko last march2013 pa.can i still pay april2013-aug2013 contribution para ma avail ko yung maternity benefits ko?thanks!

  72. Nors on August 8th, 2013 9:08 pm

    Hi marge, late ka na for Apr to June. You can still pay for July, basta you pay 1 quarter (July Aug Sep). You can avail basta meron kang nabayaran na 9 months sa Aug 2012 to July 2013. Ask others too

  73. marge on August 8th, 2013 9:40 pm

    Thanks for the help… :)

  74. Stephani Macalino on August 10th, 2013 6:43 pm

    Hi!

    I stopped paying for about a year now since I changed jobs (I became a contractual research) and I want to start paying again. Problem is, I lost my phone which contains all important info like my PhilHealth Number (I know I should have saved it online somewhere). I’m currently inquiring this info from my previous company.

    My question is, can I pay for Jan to July this August and where can I make the payments? Also, for next year, I’d like to start paying annually. How do I go about arranging this?

  75. Nors on August 10th, 2013 11:04 pm

    Hi Stephani, you can ask your Philhealth no. at any Philhealth branch or Philhealth desk at Robinson malls. Bring your ID. You can no longer pay for Jan to June. You can pay for 3rd quarter and the next quarters. You can pay for any number of months in advance. This August, you can pay for 1 year (July 2013 to June 2014) at any Philhealth branch, Bayad Center or LBC.

  76. Orlando Giba on September 15th, 2013 12:54 am

    Hi Nors,

    I recently got separated from employment. However I continued paying my contributions as an Individually Paying Member. The problem is I realize I forgot to update my membership category from Employed to IPM. What’s going to happen to those payments that I have made? Will it still be credited? Thanks.

  77. Nors on September 15th, 2013 10:29 am

    Hi Orlando, yes, your payments are credited under your name. Keep your receipts. You can verify/update your membership status at Philhealth desk offices at some Robinsons mall or SM Malls or any Philhealth branch.

    I am an individually paying philhealth member. Last Sept 21,2012, i made the ff: payments :

    July to Dec. 31, 2012. — p600.00

    Jan 1 to Dec 31,2014 — p1,200.00
    For a total of p1,800.00

    When is my next payment again? How much is my monthly premium? Can i just pay thru any of your accredited banks or payment centers?
    I hope to get a reply from your office..

    Thank you and God bless

    Hi Angela, did you mean Jan to Dec 2013 for your 1,200 payment? That’s 100 per month. Did you pay this last year? This year the rate is 150 per month. You can pay in advance Jan to Dec 2014 so you can avail of the 150 rate. By the way, this is a blog, and it’s not owned by Philhealth. Thank you anyway for commenting here.

    good day i am sick now and i wanna go to hospital but i havent paid my philhealth since i stop working last march 2013. can i still use my philhealth id coz i have paid it for a year? and one more my brother is sick also and he just turned 21 last august 12 2013 and he has just been hospitalized yesterday sept. 28 2013 can he still avail the benefits of philhealth that my father hols?he is a dependent of my father.

  81. Nors on September 29th, 2013 7:09 pm

    Hi dave, sorry hindi mo magamit, kasi sa ordinary illness or non-surgery treatment, dapat nabayaran mo ang 3 of the past 6 months. Pag surgery, dapat paid ang 9 of the past 12 months.
    Sa case ng brother mo, hindi na siya puedeng dependent kasi over 21 na siya. Pero puede siyang mag-member at bayaran niya ang August and Sep para merong continuity — maghahalo ang pagiging dependent niya at yong pagiging individual payor niya. Pero mas maigi kung magtanong sa Philhealth bukas Sep 30 para sure. Ang deadline for payment ng quarter is the last day of the quarter.

  82. Jayson on October 2nd, 2013 3:36 pm

    Hi Nors,

    Good day!

    My wife became a member of PhilHealth under IPC last March and already paid 1800 for the whole year (January-December 2013).
    She is expected to give birth this 2nd week of October. 9 months paid contribution was satisfied however the 12 months age of membership is not yet fulfilled. Will she be eligible for maternity benefits given that her age of membership is only 10 months?
    I’m concerned with the 9/12 rule on maternity benefits.
    Thank you for your time.

  83. gerrica on October 2nd, 2013 4:38 pm

    hi good day im gerrica , ask ko lng if paano ko maavail ung benefit ko s philhealth if 5 months contribution p lng ako s dati kong work. i am 7 months pregnant now ! and accredited yung clinic .. they say na need 9 months contribution so i need to pay 4 months .. how? and where . i lived in novaliches q.c first time ko mag process anu ang dapat requirements to bring ? ang how much ung pay for the remaining 4 months
    pls answer ill try to fix it by tommorow with my mom thank you so much…

  84. Nors on October 2nd, 2013 7:24 pm

    Hi Jayson, yes, she’s eligible. She has paid Jan to Sep, 9 months BEFORE her month of delivery. It’s not required that she should have been a member for 12 months; what’s required is that she has paid 9 of the 12 months BEFORE her month of delivery.

  85. Nors on October 2nd, 2013 7:28 pm

    Hi gerrica, dapat nabayaran mo ang 9 of the 12 months BEFORE your month of delivery; maghalo ang payments mo as employed and as individual payor. http://www.healthphilippines.net/2013/07/individual-payor-eligible-philhealth-maternity-benefit/ parang merong philhealth diyan sa robinsons nova, or puede sa Bayad Center. Hindi ko sure kung puede pang bayaran ang Jul to Sep.

  86. veronica on October 2nd, 2013 7:43 pm

    Good day! Ask ko lang po kung pwede pa rin ako magbayad ng contribution for last quarter (June – Sept.2013) this month of October. Na missed ko po magbayad dahil sa kabusyhan. At pwede ko po ba ito mabayaran sa LBC outlet. Consistent po ang payment ko since second quarter of 2011. Salamat po

  87. Nors on October 3rd, 2013 7:33 am

    Hi veronica, sabi ng Philhealth sa FAQ nila puede kang humingi ng grace period kasi good payor ka. Kung hindi na tanggapin sa LBC, pumunta ka na sa Philhealth at sabihin mo na on-time ka palagi sa payment since 2011.

  88. veronica on October 3rd, 2013 8:19 am

    Thank you so much Nors!

  89. Brenda on October 3rd, 2013 10:56 am

    Ask ko lang d ako naka bayad nitong July 2013 to sept 2013 pwede ko pa ba yun habulin ngayong month of October naka bayad naman po ako ng 1st and 2nd quarter 2013 self employed po ako

  90. Nors on October 4th, 2013 7:35 am

    Hi Brenda, late ka na pero subukan mo. Dapat sa Philhealth branch ka magbayad at sabihin mo na ngayon ka lang na-late. Meron silang grace period policy pero para ito sa mga loyal and good payors.

  93. Nora on November 15th, 2013 2:19 pm

    Hi ana, tama na hindi mo na puedeng bayaran ang past months, except lang kung within the current quarter pa lang. Pay this current quarter, Oct to Dec 2013, and then later on Jan to Mar 2014. Update your MDR and write your member category as Informal Sector (sabi mo kasi unemployed ka na) so you can qualify for the 3-month eligibility.

  94. joel mercdo on November 27th, 2013 2:54 pm

  95. Nora on November 28th, 2013 7:57 am

    Hi joel, baka up to now, Philhealth is still not yet efficient. Mag-comment ka sa Facebook page ng Philhealth or call Philhealth 441-7442

  96. lhynne on November 29th, 2013 10:40 am

    hi! ask ko lang po last posted payment ko po from my previous employer was on last feb pa po. Pwd ko pa po byaran ang from march to december pag mag voluntary member na ako since separated na rin po ako from employment?

    Ask ko lang po magkano ang monthly payment at saan po pwede magbayad malayo po kasi aq sa bagong pinaglipatan ng philhealth branch sa manila meron po ba mas madaling paraan ng pagbayad?

  98. Nora on December 5th, 2013 9:05 pm

    Hi Jennifer, puedeng magbayad sa Bayad Center. 150 pesos per month this 2013. 200 pesos per month starting Jan 2014. Bring your Philhealth no.

  99. martha on December 22nd, 2013 10:33 pm

  100. Nora on December 23rd, 2013 8:16 am

    Hi martha, sorry hindi na puedeng bayaran ang 1st and 3rd. Ang puede ay 4th quarter. Pero if you need Philhealth now, you can update your member category to Individual Payor – Informal Sector para bayaran mo lang ang 1 year in advance, para maging eligible ka.

  101. grace on December 29th, 2013 10:02 pm

    Hi po!new member po ako ng philhealth last july (after i found out i was pregnant) and i was only able to pay for my contributions this quarter( oct-dec). can i still avail po yung individually paying contract program ng philhealth when i give birth this feb.2014?if yes po, paano po yung procedures?thanks.

  102. Nora on January 1st, 2014 8:18 am

    Hi grace, update your member data to Individual Payor-Informal Sector and pay also Jan 2014 or Jan to March so you’ll be eligible in Feb.

  103. Jing on January 5th, 2014 10:24 pm

    Hello ask ko lang kung pwede na daughter ko na lang pag bayarin ko for my philhealth contributions under my name? I heard na 2400 na ngayon bayad for one year? Last year kasi 1200 lang binayad ko. Hindi kasi ako maka alis ng bahay kasi ako nag aalaga ngayon sa mother ko na bed ridden na. At ang beneficiary ko ang mother ko, pwede ko kaya idagdag na beneficiary husband ko? Thanks. God bless.

  104. Dessiree Tumabiene Bienz on January 13th, 2014 12:33 pm

    Hi,just want to know how to send a payment to philhealth. I am a individual payor. How for the year 2014 payments?

    Thanks

  105. Dessiree Tumabiene Bienz on January 13th, 2014 12:34 pm

    By the way ,I am right now in Chicago . How can I do my payment from here?

  106. Nora on January 13th, 2014 3:08 pm

    Hi Dessiree, ask this remittance partner of Landbank if they’re accepting Philhealth payments. Landbank is a payment collection partner of Philhealth.
    MoneyDart Global Services, Inc.

    +1 773 961 7366, +1 771 761 7289
    prabhakar@moneydart.com
    For individual payors, 1 year payment is now 2400 pesos (200 per month)

  107. Ben Opeña on January 24th, 2014 8:11 pm

    How can i pay with a bank or bayad center with philhealth is there any certain requirements including? Thank you so much

  108. Nora on January 25th, 2014 9:28 am

    Hi Ben, I think it’s easier to pay at Bayad Center. Bring your Philhealth no. and then ask for a Philhealth payment slip. Write your name, Philhealth no., months to pay (200 pesos per month) and total amount to pay.

  109. Gerardo R. Navallo on February 2nd, 2014 6:23 am

  117. Brian on April 2nd, 2014 10:53 pm

    Miss Nora,
    I’ve just successfully registered online and have received my MDR in just one 1 day. my questions are:
    1. when will my membership be effective?
    2. the philhealth site mentioned that for an individually paying professional who can’t show proof that monthly is income is < P25T, will have to pay P900/quarterly, am i right?
    3. you mentioned in your site that we can pay in banks, do i just mention to the teller that i'm paying for my philhealth contribution?
    4. since i registered online, where do i get my ID?
    thank you very much in advance.

  118. Nora on April 3rd, 2014 1:34 pm

    Hi violeta, pumunta ka sa Philhealth and ask for your MDR and request for a certificate of eligibility to avail of Philhealth. Tell them you lost your receipt.

  119. Nora on April 3rd, 2014 8:22 pm

    Hi Brian: 1- You can use your Philhealth after 3 months. If you want to use it immediately, pay for 12 months in advance. This is based on comments here, and on a Philhealth advisory I’ve read. But since Philhealth has not updated its web page on Individual Payors’ eligibility, ask others too. 2- I read again the circular/FAQ you mentioned, and how they said it is confusing. What I can say is that pay according to what member category/profession/income you wrote in your registration form. I can sense that you earn more than 25k a month, so pay 300 a month. 3- Yes. Or ask the guard/teller if they have a Philhealth payment slip that you must fill up. I think it’s easier to pay at Bayad Center (ask for a Philhealth payment slip) 4- You can request for your ID card when you have time to go to a Philhealth branch. Bring your premium receipt. Anyway, what the hospitals usually require are your premium receipt, MDR and any valid ID.

  120. bianka on April 14th, 2014 8:32 pm

    Hi ma’am good evening just wanna ask if magagamit ko na philhealth benefits ko my last contribution was 2008 then nagbayad po ako this april lng as voluntary member april-December binayaran ko if operahan po ako by nov entitled na po ba ako sa benefits because I paid 9months contribution,hoping for your response thankyou

  121. Nora on April 15th, 2014 6:22 am

    Hi bianka, yes, you’re eligible, kahit by July. For Individual Payor-Informal Sector, payment of 3 months within the 6 months before confinement na lang ang kelangan.

  122. arvie pablo on April 15th, 2014 5:52 pm

    hi po.im arvie..ngbyad po ako gnena sa bdo kaso d nila tinanggap.0 yong last digit ng pen namin 15 pa yong deadline which is ngayon pero d nla tinanggap.pumunta aku sa lbc error..san na po aku pwed mgbyad?

  124. Nora on April 16th, 2014 1:21 pm

    Hi arvie, dahil late na yan, dalhin mo na sa Philhealth branch where your company is paying or nearest your company location. Monthly penalty is 2% of total late payment x (no. of days late divided by 30 days)
