Pay Your Philhealth Contribution Before July 2012, Save 2,400 Pesos

Nagreklamo ang mga OFWs, nag-ingay ang mga activists, merong mga senador na nag-oppose. Pero wala rin, tuloy din ang increase ng Philhealth contributions, napostpone lang ang date of implementation.

Update as of January 2013:

Ito ang monthly Philhealth contributions effective January 2013 to December 2013:

Voluntary Members   – 150 pesos

OFWs —   100 pesos

Self-Employed Professionals earnings more than 25k a month  –  300 pesos

Employees   — from 175 pesos to 875 pesos, based on income ; employee share is from 87.50 pesos to 437.50 pesos

Another update October 1, 2012:

Extended uli ang deadline to December 31, 2012… The planned increase from 100 pesos per month to 200 pesos per month ay sa January 1, 2013 na.  Kinonsider daw ang sitwasyon ng mga nabahang lugar.

Puedeng magbayad in advance for several months up to December 2013 at the rate of 100 pesos per month, basta magbayad up to Dec 31, 2012.  Pero siempre, huwag mo nang antayin ang last day or last week, kasi holidays na.

Update August 2012:

…Extended ang deadline to September 30, 2012… Starting October 1, 2o12, ang 100 pesos per month ay magiging 200 pesos per month na.

If you are a Voluntary Member or Individually Paying Member of Philhealth earning 25,000 pesos a month or less, pay in advance your Philhealth contribution for two years before July 2012 so you can save up to 2,400 pesos.

Starting July 2012, Philhealth will increase its monthly premium for voluntary members from 100 pesos a month to 200 pesos a month. That would be 2,400 pesos a year.  This is for voluntary members with a monthly income of 25k pesos or less.

But it has given an option for voluntary members to pay in advance their Philhealth contributions for two years at the old rate — 100 pesos a month.

So kung meron ka nang 2,400 pesos, magbayad ka na in advance, para yong susunod na 24 months mo ay bayad na. Imbes na 4,800 pesos yong 2 years, magiging 2,400 pesos lang. Naka-save ka ng 2,400 pesos, a 50-percent discount.

Puede ring 1,200 pesos lang muna ang bayaran mo, pero pipirma ka ng Individual Policy Contract. Pay the first 1,200 pesos before July 2012, and then pay the balance of 1,200quarterly, semi-annually or annually.

Para sa mga OFWs, mas mahaba ang kanilang palugit, kasi, palagay ko, mas nag-ingay ang mga OFW groups. Their increase will start in January 2013. At mas malaki ang rate of increase nila, kasi dati, 900 pesos a year lang sila. But starting January 2013, they will also pay 2,400 a year. But OFWs can also pay in advance to save 2,400 pesos.

  2. hi miss nors.. ask ko lang kung pwede ko pa bayaran un payment ko for jan to march 2013.. nawala kasi sa isip ko na bayaran last dec 2012.. dpo ba cut off oo last day of payment nila for jan- mar 2013 is dec 2012? if pde pa po bayaran ngyon.. magagamit ko na po ba sakaling magkasakit ako o isa sa mga anak ko. thanks po…

  3. Hi Anne, kung nag-advance ka last year ng 100 per month for this year, okay pa yon. Valid payments, basta merong receipts; hindi kelangang dagdagan. Ang magbabayad ng 150 ay yong mga magbabayad this year. Yes, puede sa Bayad Center basta meron kang Philhealth no.

  4. Hi Jane, ang alam ko 150 per month na for voluntary starting Jan 2013, pero tingnan ko kung merong bagong announcement.

  5. Hi Marie, yes, puede mo pang bayaran ang Jan to March 2013. Ang deadline ng payment for any quarter ay yong last day ng mismong quarter. Example, this quarter, ang deadline is March 31, pero siempre bayaran na para hindi makalimutan, kasi wala o bihira ang tinatanggap na late payments.

  6. hi mam thank you so much .. sa respond…gusto ko malaman .. kasi magbabayad na po ako .. pero if ever po cash ko po the whole year ang bayad magkano po ang babayaran ko po .. ..sa philhealth .. godbless po and thank you so much mam nors.

  7. kailan po ang deadline ng pag babayad ngayong 2013,, at mag kano na po ang babayadan ng selfemployed..salamat po.

  8. Hi Jane, if you can pay one year in advance, it might be better if you get the Individual Policy Contract (IPC). Ask this at Philhealth. Bring your ID. One year would be 12 months x 150 pesos = 1,800 pesos.

  9. Hi Renico, the deadline for the current month is the end of the current month. The deadline for 1st quarter is March 31; 2nd quarter, June 30; 3rd quarter, Sep 30; 4th quarter, Dec 31. If there are no open collectors on these dates, pay before these dates.

  10. Hi… just want to ask if i can still pay for jan to march today or maybe tomorrow… i Was not able to pay due to long holidays…tnx…

  11. Hi rizza, it’s already April, so no, sorry, you can no longer pay for Jan to Mar. But ask others too. Or you can try paying. There might be changes I have not read. Bayad Center or SM Business Center are open during holidays.

  12. Hi Rabi, sorry there’s no facility yet to pay Philhealth online. You can use Smart text if you’re an individual payor. Pay monthly. Have at least 165 pesos in Smart load in your phone (150 for Philhealth premium and 15 pesos service fee). Go to the Philhealth website philhealth.gov.ph and click Online Services then RBA. Update: Oct 4, 2013: No more RBA, so click Electronic Payment facilities, and see if there are updates

  13. good pm po.tanong ko lang sa philhealth po ba pag nagpalit ng member category e ung contribution need pa pa consolidate? tulad po sa asawa ko before kasi employed sya private for 2 years and then now ofw na sya…nung nahospital baby namin di ko nagamit yung philhealth nya since sya yung nag declare na dependent baby namin kasi ung nag pa print kami ng MDR nia my nakalagay na contribution nia eh from 4/5/2013-4/5/2014…nung mag aasikaso na ko sa hospital sabi dapat daw ang contribution ng asawa ko eh 9mos backward.eh lumalabas 3mos pa lng nag contribute asawa ko from june – april 2013(backward) pa lang.panu po mag previous nya nung nsa pinas pa sya?

  14. Hi joe, nakalagay ba na OFW si misis sa MDR? Or through OEC ba nabayaran ang Philhealth niya? If yes, qualified dapat ang baby, kasi sa OFW, ang tinitingnan na dates ay validity dates — yong date of hospitalization ay within the dates sa Philhealth premium receipt 4/5/2014 to 4/5/2014. Ikaw na lang ang magfile for refund directly sa Philhealth para mas mabilis. File these documents: Philhealth refund
