Philhealth Branches — Membership Reactivation

Here are some tips when reactivating your Philhealth membership, based on what we recently experienced.

If you’re a former OFW who paid membership fees when Philhealth was still called Medicare, most probably your record is no longer with Philhealth.  So when you want to be a member again, you will be applying as a new member.

You will use the new membership form, and you need to bring your birth certificate, your marriage certificate (so you can include your spouse as your dependent), and birth certificates (so your children will be enrolled as your dependents).  Bring original and xerox copies.

If your spouse is a former Philhealth member, he/she can’t be enrolled as your dependent even if he/she has not paid his/her membership fees for more than 12 months. This was my case. I was rejected as a dependent even if I haven’t paid for more than 12 months.

What I should do, according to Philhealth, is to write a letter informing them I haven’t paid my premiums for  many months and ask them to allow my husband to register me as his dependent.  I hope Philhealth will address this issue in the coming months, so this type of letter is not needed.

Anyway, I wrote the letter, telling them I’m already inactive, and now I’m a dependent of my husband, who’s a former OFW and now an Individually Paying Member.

Here are the offices of Philhealth:

The minimum membership payment is 300 pesos (payment for one quarter, 100 pesos per month).  You can pay for 6 months or more.


Effective October 1, 2010, Philhealth premiums for professionals with a family income of more than 25,000 per month will increase to 600 pesos per quarter, or 2,400 per year, and then further increases to 900 pesos per quarter, or 3,600 pesos per year starting in the second year of the implementation of the premium increase.  See Philhealth Premiums for Professionals.

  8. Hi Cristelyn, palagay ko hindi open pag weekends. Meron lang special Saturdays na dine-declare. Pag malapit ka sa Robinson’s Dasmarinas, baka open yong Philhealth doon — sorry I’m not sure.

  9. Hello po ms. Tatanong ko lang po if bukas po ang office ng philhealth sa las pinas kapag sabado at ano oras po thank you:)

  10. Hi miss nora. Ask ko lang po sana if married ang nilagay ko sa hospital info ko then single pa din yung philheath record ko, i mean ndi ko pa sya mpa change status dahil nawawala yung marriage certificate ko. Okay lang ba na yung maiden name pa din gamitin ko pagkapanganak ko khit na married ang status ko sa hospital?

  11. Hi Donna, dapat mabayaran mo this month (Dec) ang Oct to Dec 2016 para puede mo nang magamit agad sakaling you need it starting the day after you pay in Dec 2016 up to Mar 2017. If you wait to start paying in Jan, you can use this Jan to March receipt starting March 2017 — you can’t use it for Jan and Feb.

  12. Hi Ms Nora. Magstart po sana ulit magcontribute this January 2017, pero kung sakali po na this December 2016 makahabol ako sa last quarter contr. maggamit ko po ba ng January 2017 yun? At kung ung contr. ng January 2017 naman po, kelan ko po magagamit iyon? Thank you po sa pagsagot. Have a great day!!

  13. Hi Anne, as an individual or voluntary payor (not OFW), hindi mo magagamit ang Oct-Dec payment mo for November confinement. Kung December sana, puede. Mga non-OFWs lang ang nagbabayad ng per quarter. Pag OFW, ang payment ay per year or per 6 months or per 2 to 3 years. As an OFW, puede kang ma-cover sa November, so I suggest magbayad ka as OFW. Punta ka sa nearest Philhealth with any proof of your being an OFW (OEC or job contract or foreign ID) and check if your membership status with Philhealth is OFW. Then ask what you will do or what other months to pay so you can use your Oct-Dec 2016 payment as OFW. Ang OFW receipt kasi ay dapat merong dates na halimbawa Oct 1 2016 to Oct 1, 2017 — merong validity dates. Ask them kung puede kang magbayad as OFW ng 6 months lang muna

  14. Hi.Ms.Nora hindi po ako nakabayad ng January-Sept 2016. Ofw po ako at dito po ako manganganak sa Pinas sa Nov. Nag bayad na ako ng Oct-Dec 2016. Pwede ko ko pa ba magamit ang maternity benefits ko?kailangan ko pa mag bayad ng Jan-Feb 2017? Thank you

  15. San pde magpaprint out ng notice sa cavite area? Ty

  16. San ang pinakamalapit na branch sa cavite? I am in GMA Area Cavite.. Thanks

  17. Hi CZA, nag-changed na ang rule. Payment of 3 months within prior 6 months na (current month is included in the counting). Make sure that your Oct to Dec 2016 quarter is paid. You can pay July to Dec now, to be sure. Or pay July to Sep now then pay Oct to Dec in October.

  18. Hi Ms. Nora! Ask ko lang po. Since I’m pregnant and ang due date ko po is January 2017. Pwede po ba ako magbayad ng semi anually for 1200? If not, kung quarterly lang ang pwede ko bayaran for 600 pesos makakaabot pa po ba ako pra magamit ko ung sa maternity benefits ko? Kung quarterly lang po ang pwede. Pwede din po ba ako magbayad ng aug-oct and nov-jan ng sabay para makaabot ako sa due date ko? Nabasa ko kasi 9months contribution within 12months of availment? Thanks! 🙂

  19. Hi! I have been unemployed since December 18 2015..i was not able to contonue my philhealth as individual payor and my husband’s MDR has not yet been updated to list me as his dependent. Im due in the next 2 weeks. Can i still avail of the maternity benefits? If yes, how do i go about filing and claiming? Thank you!!

  20. Hi sheryl, sorry I’m not sure, but I think it’s closed on weekends. Try those Philhealth desk offices inside malls.

  21. open ba ang philhealth quezon ave ng saturday? what time?

  22. Hi Nerriza, yes, you can continue paying. No, you’re not allowed to pay for past quarters. This March, until March 31, you should pay for Jan to March 2016 so you’ll be immediately covered. Then pay every quarter. Payment deadline for every quarter is the last day of the quarter.

  23. Hi Ms.nora I have not paid for more than a year. Can I continue paying? Should I pay for the months I was not able to pay?

  24. Hi Mavic, if you’re Voluntary, you can just pay this month for Jan to March or Jan to June. If you’re OFW, pay today for March 5, 2016 to March 5, 2017. If your MDR is no longer clear, pay at Philhealth so you can ask for your MDR.

  25. Hi how to process reActivation of my membership . wasn’t able to pay the contributions for the whole yr last 2015. Your help would be highly appreciated thank you

  26. Hi jm, you can use the duplicate payment as payment for the next quarter. Yes, you can go to Philhealth Express (if full-service) and have it corrected. Bring the 2 receipts (orig and xerox)

  27. hello! what should we do if we doubled our payments to philhealth? ie: 2 times payment for Q1. Can we correct it or refund? can we update at philhealth express or or at their office?thank you!!

  30. Hi raphael, yes, pay Jan to June (600 pesos) so you can avail. Pay asap — must be before confinement.

  31. Hi raphael, collect your prenatal care ORs in your wife’s name, worth at least 1,500. Submit these together with your claim form 1 and MDR. The hospital will forward the receipts to Philhealth.

  32. how can we process the prenatal care refund. what should we do?

  33. thanks for the help mrs nora. so we pay only january to july. then we can avail of benefits?

  34. Hi raphael, yes, you can register for her. Download a PMRF form, print it, so she can fill it up and sign it. You can also get this form from a Philhealth Express branch or ask your office/HR. Bring your ID, her ID and authorization letter authorizing you to register for her. Check Informal Sector, No income. After getting her MDR, you pay her premiums. God bless too

  35. tanung ko na dn po kung panu process ng sa new born care and prenatal care .. sorry po kung marame ako tanung .. sana matulungan nyo po kame .. thanks and gobless u mam nora

  36. hi again ms nora. sorry we’re not yet married. If i register her as self employed, can she avail of benefits? and if yes, can I register for her? and what requirements i need to bring. thanks god bless

  37. Hi raphael, you should pay Jan 2016 to Mar 2016 to avail, or better, Jan 2016 to June 2016. Pay today or asap because you need to pay before delivery. Pay at Philhealth so you can get a new MDR. If you’ll be the one to register, bring your ID and marriage cert (xerox and orig) and register her as your dependent. If you prefer that she’ll be the one to register, and you’ll be the dependent, it’s also okay. Note that the coverage for normal delivery is only 5k (2k for pf and 3k for hospital cost). 1,750 for newborn care if this is done (fill up another claim form 1 for baby). 1,500 refund from Philhealth if you submit prenatal care ORs.

  38. hi ms nora. my wife is preggy and her due date is this march. last contribution was january 2015 as employed. Can we avail of benefits for her maternity if we become self employed and contribute starting this march for 1 year contribution. if not what is the best way to avail of benefits. thanks godbless

  39. Hi mikz, based on Philhealth’s advisories, yes, they accept member data updating and MDR issuance. Bring your marriage cert (orig and xerox) and ID.

  41. Hi jack, if colonoscopy can be delayed, you can pay Jan to Mar 2016 asap, so you can have the colonoscopy in March and be covered. But ask first your surgeon if you can use Philhealth and if the clinic/hospital are Philhealth-accredited. To be sure also, ask the hospital if your Jan to Mar 2016 premium payment will make you eligible. Here’s a list of Philhealth coverages for colonoscopy

  42. hi, my husband had 10yrs contribution but is now inactive. Is there ipc to reactivate membership? our son will undergo colonoscopy (outpatient), how soon can we avail philhealth upon reactivation with ipc? or if no longer available, what’s our best option? we’ve also read 3 mos contribution, he’s outpatient if ever. thank you in advance.

  43. Hi Kim, I hope you went there already. Most mall-based branches are open on Saturdays. I’m not sure about that branch. They say Philhealth’s branch in Ali Mall is open on Saturdays.

  44. Is Philhealth at brickroad sta lucia east open? thank you. It’s only now that I have free timw ko to process the update on my status. thanks

  45. Hi Grace, yes, your child can be your Philhealth dependent if he/she is under 21, unemployed and unmarried. Your child’s name should appear in your Philhealth MDR as dependent.

  47. Hi jojo, you can get your Philhealth no. at any branch. Bring your ID and request for your MDR. To get your Pag-ibig MID no., do it online. Go to Here’s the process: How to Get your Pag-ibig MID. No. You can do this registration process even if you already have a Pag-ibig MID no. After Pag-ibig sees that you already have a Pag-ibig MID no., it will give you the same Pag-ibig no.

  50. corazon T. Ibardolaza

    gud ev, I’m Miss Corazon T. IBardolaza, philhealth member and already paid for 1 year. what should i do because I misplaced my receipt and PMRF form. All I have is the OEC form as evidence that I paid for 1 year as I’m OFW. How can I get a philhealth id?? please need answer. thanks

  51. Hi. Ask ko lng po kung open po kayo ng saturday?

  52. Hi Ria, yes. This November, you can pay for Oct to Dec 2015. In Jan 2016, you can pay for Jan to Mar 2016. You can pay at Bayad Center or SM Business Center. If your MDR is not clear or not updated, you can pay at Philhealth with your ID so you can request for your new MDR (fill up registration form; check FOR UPDATING).

  53. hi po, can my live-in partner and I continue paying Philhealth? We stopped paying; we paid only 3 mons or 6 mons.

  54. Hi tintin, because you will become a dependent of your husband, do not renew your Philhealth membership. Philhealth does not allow a person to be a member and dependent at the same time. Ask your husband to email you an authorization letter and a scan or photo of his ID, then you go to Philhealth and update your husband’s registration data (PMRF form). Write yourself as his dependent. Bring your marriage certificate (orig and xerox) and ID.
    You said in your other question that you need an ID. You can apply for the new postal ID at your local post office. Get first a barangay certificate for postal ID application

  55. How can I be a dependent of my husband? tnx po!

  59. Hi Leah, if you’re now staying in the Phils, you update your data at Philhealth by filling up registration form (Check For Updating) and check Informal Sector (if not employed). You’ll get a new MDR. Pay for Oct to Dec 2015. You can no longer pay for past quarters.

  60. hi po. I haven’t paid my philhealth last 2014 when i was still overseas. Can i still pay for that or i need tomregister again as a new member?

  61. Hi Hanilette, today, you can pay for July to Sep. So pay asap today. Tomorrow, Oct 1, you’re no longer allowed to pay for July to Sep. Yes, past-years payments have no more use. Pay every quarter so you’re always covered. Requirement for Philhealth eligibility is payment of at least 3 months of the 6 months before hospitalization. Confinement month is counted in the 6-month period.

  62. Hi po I haven’t paid Philhealth since March 2015. Can I make payments for March till September po so my payments are complete till at the moment?, or my payments from Oct 2008 till Feb 2015 are useless and I should make a fresh start?

    thanks po

  63. Hi shie, yes, that’s okay. You will present your bank receipt to the clinic/hospital. Xerox it. But you need to get your MDR form. The hospital also requires that. Did Muntinlupa Philhealth tell you to get it from them? They should also give you your Philhealth card, but in case they don’t have this card, just bring any ID in case the clinic/hospital requires an ID.

  64. Hello po. I went to philhealth in muntinlupa and because they were offline, I filled up a form and was told to pay at the bank. I paid at the bank P1200 for july-dec. I was given a receipt but it was not validated by Philhealth because the bank was offline. Is that okay? I worry because I’ll be giving birth soon. thanks po.

  65. Hi Alena, yes, sure. Just go to the nearest Philhealth branch or Express desk with your ID and 600 pesos (for 1 quarter). Fill up the registration form. Check “Informal Sector” and “No Income”. You will get your MDR, card and OR.

  66. Hi shie, yes, there’s a Philhealth Express desk at the Muntinlupa City Hall. I hope their services are complete. The nearest branch is near SM Southmall. If you’re going there from Alabang, pass by Southmall a little. Opposite side. You can see the Landbank signage.

  67. Can I be a Philhealth member even if I’m not employed? tnx po

  68. Do you have a branch in muntinlupa city hall or starmall alabang? Thank you po.

  69. Hi shie, go to Philhealth with your ID, fill up the registration form, pay for July to Dec (600 pesos), get your receipt, MDR and card.

  81. Hi Nilo, is your mother at least 60 years old? If yes, the hospital should have asked for your birth certificate. If the hospital did not deduct Philhealth coverage, you can make an appeal with Philhealth and file directly with Philhealth.

  87. Hi al tan, if your wife worked for at least 10 years before in the Phils, it’s possible that she has accumulated at least 120 contributions to Medicare (now Philhealth), and therefore qualified for free Lifetime membership. If she’s qualified, you can be her dependent. If it’s less than 120 contributions, she can continue paying as Individual Payor (200 pesos per month) to accumulate 120 contributions. Your wife will request for this form from GSIS:

  88. Sa ngayon po ay hindi ako member pero si mrs. ay dating employee ng public work nakatira kami rito sa LA at dual citizen kaming magasawa. Balak po naming magretire sa pinas. Magkano po ba ang lumsump ng lifetime membership.
    at paano po ang mga dapat gawin.

  89. Magandang araw po! Gusto ko lang po malaman kung may open plantilla now for philhealth offices, dati po akong ocw or ofw, and now dito n lang po sa Pilipinas, meron po akong Civil Service Eligibility but I’m already 46 yo, gusto ko po magtrabaho dito na lang sa Pilipinas but in a government field, can you please help me for this? Thank you.

  90. HI,Nagregister ako online, my philhealth number na ako at binigay na din ung PIN ko. So pano ko po kukunin ung ID card ko po? Ano ung requirements? Tnx.

  91. Hi Marriane, you can no longer pay for last year. Go to Philhealth and ask if you can pay Jan to Mar and be eligible. Kasi 3 months na lang ang required for Individual Payor-Informal Sector. Or they might advise you to pay Mar 2014 to Feb 2015 and be eligible. Get your updated MDR from Philhealth, after payment.

  92. Good morning. May I ask po kung maaavail ko po kaya ang maternity benefit kung ang last contribution ko po ay October 2013? Kelangan ko po bang bayaran ang missed quarter as individual paying? I resigned po kasi last Oct & about to give birth this coming April. Lastly po, kung hindi na employed, san po kukunin ang MDR? Salamat po ng marami.

  93. Hi Anne, yes, basta active Philhealth member ka, you’re eligible for maternity coverage — ke single or married. Hindi requirement ang marriage for maternity coverage. If your Philhealth category is OFW, make sure that your date of delivery is within the dates in your premium receipt.

  94. Hi! OFW po ako at gusto ko po sana magamit sa maternity yung philhealth ko pero ang status ko ay single pa rin. Posible po ba na magamit sa maternity ang philhealth ko?

  95. Hi ailine, hindi na puedeng magbayad ng past months. Go to Philhealth and update your member data. Check member status Informal Sector. Pay 1 year in advance so you can avail. Para sure, ask mo na rin doon kung puede nang magamit agad basta magbayad ng 1 year at ang status ay Informal Sector.

  96. good afternoon,

    member npo ako ng philhealth more than 7 years, 2 years ago nag-resign po ako, now unemployed po ako, magpapaconfine po sana ang mother ko, gusto ko pong malaman if magagamit ko ang philhealth ko kasi beneciary ko ang mother ko, if not, ano po kaya ang pwede kong magawa, babayaran ko po ba yung 2 years na arrears? thank you po.

  97. Hi maam panu po mag file ng philhealt want ko sana mag register panu po at anu kaylangan magkanu dn po kada buwan if kunwari byaran ko 6 monts magagamit b agad yun at magagamit dn ba ng family ko un philhealth ko

  98. Hi danilo, sorry hindi po Philhealth website ito. Visit the nearest Philhealth branch with your ID.

  99. danilo o. zapnata jr

    good day po ask ko lang po nakakuha na po ako ng philhealth no. kaso po nawawala po yung id ko pwede po ba malaman kung anu yung no ko

  100. Hi mark, yes, you can already get your Philhealth number online. But Philhealth will instruct you to submit documents. You can submit these later on through your employer. If your employer requires a Philhealth document, you go to Philhealth with your ID and birth or baptismal cert. I think you need to pay 1 quarter (450 pesos this 2013) before they issue you an MDR.

  101. hi! Ask ko lang kung makukuha ba agad ang philhealth number ko kapag nagreg ako online? And kung mag aapply aq as walk in ano po ba mga requirements n dapat ko dalhin? At makukuha ko ba agad philhealth number q that day? Nid na kc sa work ko un. Thank you.

  102. Hi Gicel, are you sure this is the MDR of your boss? Is it the same name, address, date and place of birth and same Philhealth no.? If yes, baka naman meron talaga siyang anak na hindi nio alam 🙂 Before someone can be added as a dependent, the member should present a birth or marriage certificate. Puede ring merong encoding error by Philhealth. Nakita na ba ng boss nio ang MDR niya?

  103. Hi! Just wanna ask if it is possible that anyone can use my philhealth benefit claim by simply adding their names as my dependent?
    I had processed my boss MDR and we were so shocked that there was a name indicated as his dependent when in fact he is in a single status and surely no kid at all. I was the one processing his MDR and as we request again for update of MDR to be used for his mom hospitalization. One name appeared as dependent and his relationship is his daughter. What happen? is it a scam?

  104. Hi Maria, puede mo pa namang bayaran ang premium for Oct until Oct 31, so pay for your Oct asap, or pay Oct to Dec para sabay na.

  113. Hi edna, ito sinagot ko na via a post para mabasa rin ng iba. Philhealth eligibility for employees on leave

  114. Hi yza, di ko kasi sure ang way nio from Marikina. Basta sana makapunta ka to any portion ng Quezon Ave (puedeng Edsa-Quezon Ave) or Commonwealth Ave. (kasi mga Fairview-Quiapo dadaan ng Quezon Ave.) Ang Philhealth Quezon Ave ay malapit sa Pegasus. Kung galing ka ng Edsa, nasa right side mo ang Philhealth, meaning pagbaba mo ay tatawid ka pa.

  121. Hi len, bring your ID, marriage certificate, your husband’s scanned ID, work visa (or other proofs of being OFW) and authorization letter to Philhealth and fill up registration form for updating, then pay for 1 year in advance.
    You cannot use 2 memberships to cover the same confinement, so you save on premiums if you remain dependent of your husband, as you can use your husband’s membership for your own coverage.

  122. hello mam, ask ko is how to updated d philhealth of my husband… hes an ofw, and he wants me to update his philhealth and to pay it yearly…. is there any requirements that needed to update his philhealth???? and what are those??? thank you…
    if my husband is a philhealth member, can i apply for myself and my question is are both our philhealth can be used at the same time…???????
    thank you, mam…

  123. Hi daphne, yes, pay your premium without IPC. IPC is a payment contract introduced early last year but was suspended after just 1 or 2 months — it involved paying for 1 or more years in advance.

  124. hi nors:) nors ano ba ibig sabihin ng individual policy contract(IPC) ng philhealth sa individually paying member? need ba tlga IPC na un? pued namn siguro magbayad na lang ng premium kahit ala kang IPC. thanks a lot nors 🙂

  125. Hi Carleth, you register only one of your parents, and the other would be a dependent of the enrolled parent. You can go to the nearest Philhealth with your mom or dad, with ID (or birth certificate or baptismal cert) and marriage certificate (orig and xerox) and fill up the registration form, and pay for one quarter (450 pesos) or more. Get the MDR and request for an ID, if available. Another option is to download the form from, print, fill up, write one as member and the other as dependent, and have it signed by member-applicant, and write also an authorization letter authorizing you to register him and her, signed by member-applicant. Bring other docs. For the next quarter, you can pay at Bayad Center. 🙂

  126. Hi!

    I just wanna know how I could avail of Philhealth’s program “for” my mom and dad who are both unemployed. I already have mine, but I could not declare them as my dependents since they are still below 60 years of age. That said, what should I do in order to help them avail of the program too? For instance, should they need to fill up the Philhealth form as voluntary members? What would be the requirements for them, like the documents? Then, how will the set-up be given that I will be the one paying for their individual contributions?

    Thank you in advance! 🙂

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

  128. Hi erica, register online at Click “online services”, then “Register” under Electronic Registration.

  136. Hi Vience, yes, just show your marriage certificate to the hospital. Or better, you ask your husband to update his member data at Philhealth, bringing your marriage cert and his IDs. Yes, even if your husband does not have his Philhealth ID, he can avail of benefits, as long as he is updated with his payments. Documents to avail: MDR from Philhealth, claim form 1 signed by employer and certificate of premium payments from employer.
