  21. Thanks Nora,

    One more quick question. How about regarding authorization. Just a hand written or computerize is enough? or I need a SPA for it?

    Have a great day!

  22. Hi Lotta, hindi mo na kelangang bayaran ang mga past years. Just go to Philhealth with your ID and fill up the registration form to update your data. Pay for Jan to Mar (600 pesos) or Jan to June (1,200 pesos). Premiums for non-employees: If your income is 25k or less, you pay 200 pesos a month. If more than 25k, you pay 300 a month.

  23. Hello po. Self employed po ako, avon dealer in particular..gusto ko po magcontinue magbayad sa philhealth kasi nagkawork po ako dati kaya me number naman na ako. Ang question ko po, need ko paba bayaran ung mga taon na wala akong hulog? Tsaka po, kapag self employed e d ako din magbyad nung s employer share? Salamat po!

  24. Hi marion, sorry you cannot file there in UAE. You can authorize your family to file, or you can send through a courier. Your benefit will be in a cheque, so you should have a bank account where your family can deposit your cheque. Authorize a family member to receive your cheque (family member who lives in the address you write in your claim form). About coverage amount: Kung sabay ginawa yang 2 surgeries, yong hernia surgery lang ang ma-cover kasi mas expensive yan. Ang hernia repair coverage is 21k pesos. Ang varicocele surgery coverage is 12,900. These are the documents required.

  25. Hi Jey, thanks a lot for appreciating my efforts. Gives me inner joy. About Philhealth, when you turn 60, free na ang Philhealth lifetime. Just get your ID or MDR from Philhealth. You can show your Philhealth receipts (at least 120) or your SSS pension voucher or your Senior Citizen ID.
    When no longer working at hindi pa 60, you need to pay pa rin as Voluntary (currently 600 pesos per quarter). Pag na-confine, yong latest premium payments lang ang titingnan (at least 3 payments within the 5 months prior to confinement and current month). Useless na yong mga payments in previous years for confinement.

  26. Hi Nora,

    You have so much to read and to answer. Thanks to somebody like you. I had already been answered by you by a question about SSS. My question today is about Philhealth. I have 167 contributions as of November ,2016 amounting to P53,387.50.

    My question, if in case, I would retire from work, can I still use it . I remember when I was hospitalized in the past, they requested for a documents from the company for the contributions. What about if I’m not working anymore, how can I benefit from that contributions.

    Thank you for prompt reply.

  27. Hi . Can we file reimbursement in uae? or it should only be in philippines? I undergo 2 surgery here in dubai. Varicocele and hernia. How much it will cost for reimbursement? thanks

  28. Hi jessica, mother mo ang Philhealth member? Dapat nakasulat ang father mo as dependent sa MDR. Magdala ng marriage certificate sa Philhealth. Pirmahan ng father mo yong registration form. Magdala ng ID ang father mo. Dapat Philhealth-accredited yong hospital at surgeon. Kausapin muna ang doctor kung puedeng No Balance yong surgery.

  29. Hi po ask ko lang kung mabibigyan po yun nanay ko ng mdr pero sa tatay ko ang gamit na pangalan pero yung nanay ko po member po sya ng pangtawid pwese po kaya gamitin yu para sa kanyang surgery thank you po

  30. mam good day po.ilang months po ba bago ma reimburse ang ibinayad kapag nanganak? main health center po ako nanganak at accredited po ng philhealth. thankyou

  31. Hi Mae, yes, your employer and you will pay your Philhealth as Employed even if you have paid already as Voluntary because they’re mandated by the government to pay their share. Your member type will be updated after your employer reports you to Philhealth and your premium as Employed is remitted.

  32. Hi Glenda, sa Pag-ibig madali lang, usually 100 pesos sa employee at 100 pesos sa employer. Pero merong few times na hindi 100 pesos. Ito ang talagang rules sa Pag-ibig: How to Compute Pag-ibig contributions by Employee and Employer. Nagsulat na lang ako ng post para magamit na rin ng iba. Yong sa Philhealth and SSS, tingnan mo lang ang Philhealth table at SSS table. Siguro naman meron ka nang tables. About sa question na ano ba ang kasama sa SSS compensation? Lahat. Overtime, Holiday, night differential. I’ll email you yong SSS rule sa compensation

  33. Hi marife, ang tanong mo ba ay kung puedeng ikaw ang magbayad ng Philhealth premium ng mga kapatid mo sa Philhealth o sa Bayad Center o SM Business Center o sa bank? Yes, puedeng ikaw ang magbayad. Just write their names and Philhealth numbers and their member type on the payment slip. Pero kung payment ng OFW ang babayaran mo, dapat merong proof of being OFW yong ipinagbabayad mo na OFW.

  34. Hello po…just to inquire lang po…ano po ba ang requirement kapag ako po ang payor ng philhealth ng mga kapatid ko..need pa po ba ang authorization letter kahit may philhealth ID na sila? Thanks po..

  35. Hi , I’d like to ask how to compute monthly contribution for SSS, Philhealth and Pag ibig? What are the inclusions if an employee has allowances, overtime and late/absence? Do you have regulations on this?

    I hope you can help me my boss needs an answer.

    Please reply me ASAP.

    Thank you very much

  36. If I already paid the first quarter of my Philhealth membership through voluntary since I don’t have work then. And then I was employed last week of January 2017. How would the updates be process? And will my employer still has to pay the 1st quarter even though I already paid it? Or will they just covered the 2nd quarter? Is it okay to enroll the employer now in the updates?

  37. Hi alma, yes, pay ASAP for Jan to March 2017 so you can use it in March. If your MDR is old and not clear, ask for a new one from Philhealth.

  38. Magkano po ba ang bbayaran ko last may 2016 po ung last na hulog ko until now due ko po sa march 2017 pwede ko po ba magamit na pagnkabayad nako.tnx

  40. Hi Liz, ang the best is punta ka na lang sa Billing Dept para magtanong. Okay lang magtanong, kasi dapat the patient’s family knows the expenses ahead of payment time. Sorry, hindi ko masagot kasi hindi ko alam kung anong surgery ang ginawa to treat meningioma. Sa list, marami akong nakitang types of craniectomy or craniotomy, pero I’m not sure if this was the surgery done.

  41. Hi everyone, my mother po had a surgery for meningioma at senior citizen din po sya. She’s recovering mow at PGH. Magkano po ang deduction ng philhealth from her professional fee at hospital bill? Thanks po

  42. Hi mam, ask ko lng if pwede ko p magamit philhealth ng asawa if he passed away already, xa po member., nghihinayang kc aq sa contribution nya., or pwede ko b ituloy hulugan yun., salamat po sayong kasagutan

  46. Hi alpha, dapat 3 months. Pay ASAP for Oct to Dec. Dapat sa Philhealth branch so you can change your member data from Employed to Informal Sector – Individual Payor and get an updated MDR. Bring your ID

  47. hi po maam..ask ko po sana kung ilang months pa dapat kong bayadan sa contributions ko kasi po may hulog po sya nung aprilung employer ko po naghulog one month lng po ako ngwork dun.gagamitin ko po sana this december sa pag anak ko..

  48. Hi Joy, sorry late payments are no longer accepted. Deadline for paying July to Sep was Sep 30. Besides, Philhealth premium payment must be made PRIOR to start of confinement. Ask others too

  49. My husband paid for the first and second quarters of this year. He forgot to pay for the next tow quarters. He was confined this october 28. If i pay for the 2nd and 3rd quarters on nov. 2, will his hospitalization be covered still? Individual paying siya.

  50. gud pm po,sir/mam tanong lang po kc matagal kming natigil sa paghu2log ng contibution naming mag asawa ngaun gusto po namin mgahuloguli ngaung katapusan ng october pede na po ba kming magbayad na lang sa mga bayadcenter ng month of october lang o kalangan magpunta muna ako sa philhealth para maipa update ung contribution namin?tnx po

  51. Hi Angel, sorry for the delayed response. I hope somebody at the hospital answered your question. How new an employee are you? If you’ve worked since July, and your employer has already deducted at least 3 contributions, then you can use Philhealth.

  52. Hi Eder, sorry for my late reply. I had to do my work. And sorry hindi siya covered kasi it’s Sep-Oct na, outside the validity dates na. I hope merong nag-advise sa iyo last Sep 29 na magbayad agad sa Philhealth in behalf of your OFW spouse baka sakaling nahabol pa. Pero hindi ko rin sure kasi ang sabi ng Philhealth dapat mauna ang premium payment bago confinement.

  53. Hi Kathrine Rose, go to Philhealth with your ID, your husband’s ID and authorization letter and request for your husband’s MDR. Tell them your husband forgot his Philhealth no. They’ll give you the no.

  54. Good morning po, ask ko lang po sana kung ano po yung philhealth number ng asawa ko wala pa po kasi syang i.d eh na misplace po yun mdr nya..eto po yun details nya Lavieri Santos Lagasca..

  56. Hi cheryll, sorry, pero dapat mas mauna yong date of Philhealth premium payment kesa sa date of admission sa hospital. Kelan ba yong last 3 contributions mo while employed? Within the past 5 months ba? If yes, puede mong gamitin

  57. Hi anne, dapat nauna ang pagbayad ng premium kesa sa date of admission. Kelan ba yong last 3 Philhealth contributions mo as employed? Kung within the past 5 months, puede mong gamitin.

  65. Hi Mary Joy, do you mean your baby was already confined when you went to Philhealth? If your baby was already confined, Philhealth will not cover the confinement. Payment of premiums should always be BEFORE the first day of hospitalization. I wish your baby is not yet confined, so you can pay April to June so you can use Philhealth.

  66. My last payment December 2016, my baby confined hospital now June but I missed pay January to March. I go to Phil Heath to pay my missed payment Jan to march. Want pay April to June too. Is not covered hospitality. Coz I missed payment . This is right

  67. Hi po, if we were confined potoday, then if last payment made was march 2016, are we covered po by philhealth? Thank you.

  68. Hi bhelle, upon admission, present 2 Philhealth claim form 1 (one for you and one for your baby), and copies of your premium payment receipt and MDR to the hospital. Your Philhealth coverage should be deducted from your bill before discharge.

  69. Hi Anne, payments in 2014 will no longer be honored. He should have paid at least 3 months within the past 5 months, and there’s a payment deadline. Quarterly deadline is the last day of the quarter. Payment deadline for Jan to March was March 31. This month, he can pay for Apr to June, but he can use it in June and July. But the most important info is he should have paid Philhealth BEFORE the first day of hospitalization. Ask others also. He can ask for assistance at the office of local officials in his city or town. He brings the bill and hospital papers.

  70. Hello po,my friend became a member last june 2014,but failed to contribute since then. now he needed assistance from Philhealth because his child fell and needed an operation due to bone fracture, as the fall to the floor was hard. The child is in a public hospital po at this moment. I wanted to extend help even just through giving a thorough info about Philhealth assistance. How can Philheath help him? Will wait for your response. Thank you very much.

  71. Hi Reez, yes, Philhealth’s coverage for systemic lupus erythematosus is 11,900 (3,570 for PF; 8,330 for hospital cost)

  72. Hi aileen, you can start using Philhealth in June if you need it. Philhealth does not care whether you’ve paid for many years or not; what’s important for Philhealth is you have paid for at least 3 months within 6 months of hospitalization.

  73. i get my philhealth number last july 2015, but i paid my contribution as a voluntary paying member this april to june. how many months or year to paying the contribution to be able to used my philhealth if i needed?

  74. Hi Rachel, RF1 is the Employer’s Remittance form, so you should get it from your employer. Ask for a copy for the month you last paid your premium through your employer. Do you have a leave form? Or proof from your office that you’re on leave? Plus salary slip that shows your Philhealth deduction. In years’ past, Philhealth allows these so you can pay your premium while on leave. You can ask Philhealth.

  75. Hi. My employer won’t issue rf1 but philhealth office required it so i can pay the months that I’m on leave from work. Where can i get rf1? Thanks

  76. Hi gen, does your employee need the certification for this month of April? Only 3 monthly payments of the last 6 months (actually last 5 months and current month) are needed for coverage, so since that employee was there with you since Oct 2015, you can certify at least 3 monthly payments — can be from Nov to Jan or from Jan to Mar 2016 or from Nov to Mar.

  77. Good day Ma’am, just want to ask what is the requirement for delay payments for employer?The employee was a contractual worker and started to work on October,2015 to our company and he has previous employer until June,2015.Do we need to get certification from his previous employer?or the present employer will certified him???

  78. Dear Ma’am,

    My friend has been unemployed for 2.5 years and would like to continue his PhilHealth contribution and has already requested to change status to a paying individual. He settled P1,200 today – Mar 31. Up to when can he avail the benefits and when is the due date to renew again his payment for a continuous availment of benefits? Thank you!

  79. Hi mareneil, the coverage for nonhepatic amoebiasis is 6,000 (1,800 for PF and 4,200 for hospital costs); coverage for hepatic amoebiasis is 10, 000 (3,000 for PF and 7,000 for hospital costs).

  80. Hi Lolita, for OFWs, you can use your Philhealth within the dates in your receipt. For example, if your receipt shows Feb 25, 2015 to Feb 25, 2016, you can use it if you’re confined within Feb 25, 2015 to Feb 25, 2016. If for example, you’re confined Feb 26, 2016, you can no longer use this receipt, as Feb 26, 2016 is outside the receipt dates. You can renew your Philhealth by asking your family to pay for you. They should show proof that you are OFW.

  81. Hi mrs nora I’m ofw. Before I left, I paid phihealth, then I wasn’t able to renew. Can I use it? Can I get benefits?

  82. Hi jun, sorry but the date of Philhealth payment should be prior to date of start of confinement. Past years’ payments of Philhealth is not allowed; besides they are not usable. What is required is payment of 3 monthly premiums within past 6 months (current month is included in the count). Ask others too

  83. Hi mrs Nora. My youngest child is confined in the hospital today. My last philhealth payment was in 2011 because I lost my job. Can I pay those past years so I can use philhealth upon discharge?

  84. Hi Rhen, yes, you can use it in May. But it’s better if you pay also for Apr to June in Apr so your eligibility continues.

  85. Hello po mrs nora. I’ll give birth this coming may. I paid as self employed. So i paid 600 pesos. Up to when can I use it? It’s written as self employed for jan-march. Thank you. Please reply.

  86. Hi jenny, yes, you can use your Philhealth for your CS in March 2016. If you’re thinking about the 90-day single-period-of-confinement rule, August 2015 is already more than 90 days away from March 2016. Besides that, CS is different from the cause of your confinement in August 2015. You will no longer use your 2015 receipt; you’ll use your Jan-March payment to qualify. But in case the hospital is sigurista, they might ask for your Dec 2015 receipt, or Oct to Dec receipt) so bring your Dec 2015 receipt, although based on Philhealth rule, Jan to Mar receipt should be enough.

  87. hi ms nora! I am having c section po on march 2016 I have paid my contribution as self-employed from jan-dec 2016.. But I have used philhealth due to my hospital confinement last august 2015 can I still used may philhealth when I give birth on March? And do I still need my receipt of my payment last july-dec 2015 when I give birth? or just my receipt this year on philheath? thanks a lot ms nora!

  88. Hi Michelle, yes, you can. Just visit the nearest Philhealth branch with your ID, barangay cert or any document proving your identity, together with your daughter’s birth cert (xerox and orig). Fill up the registration form, submit, receive your MDR, then pay your premium (minimum is 600 pesos). Later on, you can pay every month (200 pesos) or every quarter at Bayad Center.

  89. Even if I don’t have sss, can I apply for philhealth? Then my beneficiary is my daughter 10 yrs old ok, is this ok? what are the requirements? Thx for the answer:)

  90. Hi Michelle, anyone can apply for Philhealth. Just go to Philhealth with your ID or birth cert or barangay cert or any document that proves your identity. Pay at least 3 months (Jan to Mar 2016) for 600 pesos. Fill up the registration form, submit, receive your MDR and pay. For your next payments, you can pay at Bayad Center or SM Business Center.

  91. Hi mrs Nora what are the requirements in applying for philhealth as a voluntary. don’t have work. would like to have Philhealth. how to get mdr? Thx po hope you reply 🙂

  92. Hi Celsa, did you submit your Philhealth documents to the hospital? Was your 19,000 coverage (or 11,400 for hospital cost) not deducted from your bill? If you filed your Philhealth docs, wait for your payment notice from Philhealth (maybe 2 months or more), and check if what Philhealth paid to the hospital was deducted from your bill. If not, go to the hospital and ask for your refund. Bring your notice, hospital bill and OR.

  93. Hi Ms. Nora I’m cesarean mother last September 26,2015 I’m used my philhealth can I reimbursement my bills? How many months?

  95. Hi jena, are you expected to give birth in June 2016? Yes, you can avail of Philhealth in June even if you pay for Jan to June 2016 only. This Dec, you can still pay for Oct to Dec 2015 if you like, so you can avail of Philhealth this Dec or Jan or Feb if needed. God bless too

  97. HI,
    Sakop po ba ng philhealth ang biopsy? gusto ko kasi ipabiopsy yung balat ko…

    thank you, hoping for your response…

  98. Can we ask online if we’re registered or not? I Need philhealth number but have not time, the branch is far from here

  99. Hi Cherry, you can still pay for October as long as you pay asap the whole quarter of October to December (600 pesos), so you can use Philhealth in Dec or Jan. If your MDR shows you’re Employed, pay at Philhealth so you can get your updated MDR (fill up registration form to update your member status)

  100. hi Ms. Nora good day! just want to ask if i can avail my Phil health maternity benefits though i just resigned last month of September 25,2015 and i am now 7 months pregnant and soon to deliver by this range of Dec 23 2015 – Jan 11 2016.and if not, what i am going to do since i didn’t pay this month of October. thank you and God Bless

  101. Hi Eddie, yes, your wife is covered as your dependent. Your wife should have submitted documents to the hospital before discharge (so that the coverage could have been deducted from the bill) because claims now are being filed with Philhealth by hospitals, and not by members. If she can get claim forms and documents from the hospital, she can try filing for refund directly with Philhealth, but her claim will be accepted only if she has a valid reason for not filing documents with the hospital before discharge. God bless too.
    Your MDR from Philhealth should show the names of your dependents — your wife can present marriage/birth certificates so your dependents are included in the MDR.

  102. Hi Ms. Nora, I’m an OFW and paying OWWA, Philhealth contribution together every year, my wife (my dependent) undergone an operation (appendectomy) last Sep 26, 2015 in a private hospital. Is she covered by Philhealth or do we have any claim from them. thank you and God bless.

  103. Hi Sheng, yes, you can use Philhealth this September. Get your updated MDR from Philhealth, if you don’t have yet. Coverage for raspa is 11,000 — ask your OB if that amount is enough so you don’t have to pay anything.

  104. Hi! I’m not employed. since 2011 i have not updated my philhealth as until now I don’t have a job. But I paid voluntary contributions for july to sept 2015. I came to know I was pregnant. Today I miscarried and my ob advised me to have D&C asap. Can I now use my benefits from philhealth? I paid only july to sept 2015. I want to have D&C asap.thanks

  105. Hi Shie, will you use it this September? Yes, you can use Philhealth (within Sep to Feb) even if you failed to pay Apr to June.

  106. hello.my contribution is until january only because i resigned due to risky pregnancy. can i pay semi annual? i mean frm feb-jul? im due this month. thanx

  107. Hi ms. Nora can i avail my benefits if i Have a gap april- june but i already pay my july-december and the other months before april- june 2015. i really need it now shie Thank you

  108. Hi dhie, sad to say, philhealth is only used for hospitalization. It does not give death or funeral benefit and it does not refund premium payments. God bless too

  109. hi ms nora, my father is ofw and active member of philhealth, he died in other country where he work in, do we still have benefits claims in philhealth, thanks and god bless

  110. Hi Jackie, yes, because your category is Employer. Penalty/interest formula is: Penalty = Amount Due x 2% x (Number of Days Delayed divided by 30 Days). Philhealth said that you must pay these interest or penalties separately at the Philhealth branch that has jurisdiction over your company account

  111. Hi Ms. Nora. Can i still pay the contributions from May – June 2015 of our Company? How much is the penalty? and Can i pay through bank? Thanks

  112. Hi Ns.Nora, My daughter confine in hospital for 1 day of dehydration My CF1 was arrived late due to signatories I paid already the bill of P5,800.00
    because my daughter need to take school exam on the day we discharge. Can I file for a refund? Thanks,

  113. ..so I can still receive a notice even if the extra coverage will go to the hosp? coz when I was hosp & had a Cholecystectomy last year I never receive any Notificatiom frm Philhealth..
    Thank u..God bless!

  114. Ah ok po..so I can still receive a notice even if the extra coverage will go to the hosp? coz when I was hosp & had a Cholecystectomy last year I never receive any Notificatiom frm Philhealth..
    Thank u..God bless!

  115. Hi Arlene, sorry no, the extra coverage will go to the government hospital fund. If you bought meds and supplies outside the hospital for the operation, and you have ORs for these in your name, you can ask for refund from the hospital after receiving the benefit payment notice from Philhealth.

  116. Hi ms. Nora, had an operation (appendectomy) last aug 9, 2015. my bill in a govt hosp was 10k; it was all covered by phic. if 24k is the fix case rate for appendectomy, is it possible that I can still receive reimbursement? thank u. god bless!

  117. Good afternoon. Can I use philhealth for my delivery by october. My last payment was oct 2014. There’s 8 months gap po. I paid 600 for july-sept 2015. Can I use it?

  118. Hi janine, if your husband is Employed, he cannot deactivate his Philhealth membership. His Philhealth deductions are mandatory, in the same way that his employer’s share of the payments are also mandatory. It’s you who can stop paying, and ask your husband to declare you as his dependent (update his data at Philhealth, with your marriage certificate and your child’s birth certificate). The problem for you is if POEA requires that you pay Philhealth when you renew your OEC. The next time you renew your OEC, try showing your husband’s Philhealth MDR and your marriage certificate.

  119. ms nora, I’m ofw. 2400 is the amount I pay yearly. my husband also pay through salary deduction in the Phils. Can my husband deactivate his Philhealth, and I’ll be the one to pay and make him and my child my dependents? What should I do? It’s costly for us to be both paying. Thanks po

  120. Hi duday, if you still have time before you start working, you can change your member data at Philhealth. Bring your baby’s birth certificate (original and photocopy) and your IDs. Fill up PMRF form – check FOR UPDATING. The advantage of filing yourself is you get your MDR and card immediately. When employed, your employer will ask for your Philhealth no. and will remit your premium payment to Philhealth.

  121. Hi, I’ll be working again. I was previously voluntary or self-employed. I paid by myself as I got pregnant. Now do I need to file that I’m employed or my company will do it? And I want my baby to be my dependent. Where do I file it? Thanks.

  122. My husband is an out patient. His abdomen enlarged so I had him checked up. I paid for his laboratory tests last march. This july, he again had a check up. The doctor advised him to get an ultra sound and have other laboratory tests. Can I use philhealth for these tests as out patient?

  123. kailangan po ba sa philhealtj branch ako mgpnta at mghulog. ung previous n mga hulog ko po kc under company name yung rzmittance kya pag vniew hnd agad nkikita. di po ba pwede sa bayad center nlng salamat po

  124. Hi deth, pay asap Apr to June on June 29 or June 30. Deadline is June 30. You can pay for Apr to Aug, if you like.

  125. Hi Shiela, better pay at a Philhealth branch so you can get your updated MDR and card. Bring your approved leave form.

  126. Hello philhealth, im a government employee, how can i pay my Philhealth card, ? im on a leave for six month. Can i pay at the accrediated bayad centers? Tnx

  127. Hi jessa, yes, you can use your Apr-June payment for June to Aug. Keep your Bayad Center receipt. This June or in July, pay also July to Sep, so you and your baby are covered until Nov. Get your MDR and card at the nearest Philhealth branch

  128. Hi! just want to ask, i just separated last March 31, 2015 from my employer and I change to a voluntary payor then I payed at Bayad center for the month of April-jUNE.Will I avail my maternity benefit this august2015 though I pay at bayad center for my first payment as a voluntary payor?

  129. Hi leny, just go to the nearest Philhealth branch with your ID and if you’re married with child, bring also your marriage cert or child’s birth cert or marriage cert. Bring at least 600 pesos for 1 quarter’s payment. Fill up the PMRF form.

  130. Hi mam. I just want to ask if pwede pa namin lakarin ang Philhealth benefits ng father ko na namatay last month of September, 2014? thanks

  131. Hi angela, sorry payment deadline for January is Jan 31. Deadline for the quarter of Jan to March is March 31.

  132. Hi angel, sorry, the deadline for January was Jan 31. The deadline for the Jan-Mar quarter was March 31. Ask others too

  133. Hi I just want to ask po if I can still pay for the month of January? Thank you po. Ask others too

  134. Hi Liza, yes, continue paying as Individual Payor. Just go to Philhealth with your ID and update your data. You can pay for 1 quarter (600 pesos) or 6 months (1200) or 1 year (2400). Get your MDR and your card. If you’re earning more than 25k pesos a month, you pay 300 pesos a month.

And then, I resumed monthly contributions again from March 2014 to July 2014 because I had a job. However, I left the company last August so my philhealth contributions stopped again.
