Pregnant Minors Should Become Philhealth Members

 

If your daughter is under 21 years old, unmarried and unemployed, she is qualified as your Philhealth dependent.  Your Philhealth membership can help cover her medical needs. She does not need to register for Philhealth membership.

But if she is pregnant, unmarried, and the father of her baby is not a Philhealth member, then you need to help her register to become a Philhealth member.

Why?  So that in case her baby needs special newborn care or additional medical treatment, her baby will be covered by her Philhealth membership.

Remember that your minor daughter can be your dependent, but her baby cannot be your dependent.

There have been parents commenting on our blogs regarding the cases of their dependent daughters whose newborn babies needed special medical care.  If the minor daughters were Philhealth members, then their babies would have been covered by Philhealth.

  4. Hi Mariel, mas mabuti na mag-member ka at kumuha ka ng sarili mong Philhealth membership para maging dependent mo ang baby mo. Kasi ang mama mo, ikaw lang na anak niya ang puede niyang dependent, hindi niya puedeng dependent ang magiging apo niya (yong magiging anak mo). Meron kasing mga cases na kelangan ang extra medical care ang baby, na huwag naman sana sa case mo, so mas mabuti na covered din ang baby under Philhealth. Just bring your school ID or barangay cert or birth cert sa Philhealth plus 600 pesos for your first quarterly payment.

    Hello goodmorning! Im Mariel a 16 y/o pregnant po ask kolang po if ma co-cover ba ako ng philhealth ng mama ko kasi sabi po ng iba dapat kumuha daw po ako ng philhealth pero dinpa po ako 18 so ano pong mas magandang gawin? Thank u

  6. Hi Melanie, sorry hindi mo puedeng dependent ang baby kasi kelangan ang birth cert or declaration of adoption. Yong nag-abroad na mother, OFW ba yon? At meron siyang Philhealth? Puede niyang maging dependent ang baby kasi merong birth cert showing her as the mother.

  7. Hello Po. May baby Po Ako na inaalagaan, Hindi legally adopted,nag abroad Ang mother,pwede ko ba xa making dependent,

  8. Hi frezeya, mabuti yong ang instruction ng Philhealth na kukuha ka lang ng indigency cert from your municipality, kasi ang tinatawag na indigent member ay identified by DSWD at nasa list ng DSWD na indigent at walang source of income or financial support. Kung magbayad ka, 2,400 pesos na ang babayaran mo kasi late ka na sa requirement na payment of the past 9 months. Sa mga late payors na pregnant, puede pa ring qualified under the “Women about to give birth” program, magbayad lang ng 2,400 pesos (for one year payment).
    About indigency cert: Kelangan sigurong magpacheckup ka rin sa health center para makahingi ka ng cert of indigency sa munisipyo.

  9. Hi good evening po tanung ko lang po, kasi may nag refer sakin mag apply ako ng philhealth since 5 fives pregnant na po ako, sinabi sakin na wala daw babayaran kapag buntis nagpunta po ako ng philhealth tas sinabi ko po sa front desk na buntis ako, tapos ang sabi saakin, kumuha daw poko ng indigency sa municipality namin tapos balik po ako sa philhealth para mag apply at wala ako babayaran kahit piso, is that true? And also I want to ask if there’s option? kung magbabayad po ako ng july-september 600 lang po ba? Or wala na. Kasi hinuhusgahan po ako ng babae sa municipality namin na kukuhanan kopo ng indigency, kasi hinanapan niya ako mother’s and baby’s record nabanggit ko pong aa private ako nag prenatal examination. Yun lang po sana po masagot.

  10. Hi Ciryl, puede at dapat. Pumunta ka lang asap sa any Philhealth branch with your ID or birth cert or baptismal cert o barangay cert and fill up registration form. Check mo yong Informal Economy at No Income. Pay for July Aug and Sept. Buti na lang Sept ang due mo at puede pa ang 3-month payment to qualify. Starting Oct 1, nine months na ang required. Keep your prenatal receipts (total at least 1,500 pesos) and submit when you give birth para ma-refund ng Philhealth later on. Kung plan mo to give birth at a lying-in, ask mo muna yong lying-in if you can use your Philhealth doon kasi dapat yata sa hospital if age is less than 18 kung gagamit ng Philhealth

  11. Hi po ma’am nora, pwedi po ba ako kumuha ng Philhealth I’m only 16 yrs.old para po kc sa panganganak ko ngayun September?

  12. Hi sharmaine, sorry hindi ko sure kung nag-i-issue pa ng ID ang Philhealth. Kasi hindi required ang Philhealth ID sa hospital. Ang required ay MDR at payment receipt. To register, dalhin mo lang yang PSA or NSO document mo at 600 pesos for June July August. Then tanungin mo kung merong Philhealth ID.

  13. Hi pwd na po ba ako kumuha ng id sa philhealt im 19 years old wala po akong kahit na anug id kc yung id of school k nawala po ee PSA lang po merun ako yung NSO dati pwd po ba yun lang

  14. Hi Mary, late ka na para sa regular na Philhealth membership pero puede ka sa Philhealth for women about to give birth. Pero punta ka muna sa clinic or hospital kung saan ka manganganak at tanungin mo kung tumatanggap sila ng Philhealth na for women about to give birth — yong babayaran mo yong 1 whole year para maka-avail ng Philhealth. At tanungin mo na rin ang Philhealth package nila or yong Philhealth package ng ob-gyne mo. Ang maganda pag meron kang Philhealth ay covered din ang baby mo as your dependent. Sa Philhealth, bring your ID and 2,400 pesos for 12 months or one year.

  15. Good morning po. I’m 20 years old and 37 weeks pregnant. Pwede pa po akong magpa-member ng Philhealth? At ma co-cover po ba ang panganganak ko?

  16. Hi Francheska, Philhealth member ang husband mo? If yes, pag meron na yong marriage cert nio, punta lang siya sa Philhealth with the marriage cert and his ID at iregister ka niya as his dependent. Humingi na rin siya ng Member Data Record (MDR) — nakasulat ka as dependent. Itong MDR at payment receipt ang ipapakita nio sa hospital. Kung hindi siya member at ikaw ang magme-member, punta ka lang sa Philhealth with your ID and marriage cert para magamit mo na yong married name mo. Sa Sep ka manganganak? If yes, make sure to pay Philhealth asap July to Sep.

  17. Francheska Agon Villamayor

  21. Hi Alexandra, pumunta ka lang sa nearest Philhealth with your ID, fill up the registration form. Check mo yong No Income. Pay 200 pesos per month. Pay for April May and June (600 pesos). Keep your receipt and Member Data Record kasi yan yong ipapakita mo sa clinic or hospital. In July, puede mo nang bayaran sa Bayad Center yong July Aug Sep (600 pesos) para tuluy-tuloy ang coverage mo together with your baby. Starting Oct 1, nine monthly payments na ang required. Keep your prenatal receipts (at least 1,500 pesos total) at isama mo sa i-submit mo later on sa hospital para ma-refund ka later on ng Philhealth. Meron ka na bang napiling hospital or clinic? Alamin mo kung ano ang policies at Philhealth maternity packages nila para prepared ka.

  22. Hello po im only 17y.o and balak ko pong kumuha ng philhealth July po ang month ng panganganak ko, pano ko po maaavail yung maternity / health benefits ng philhealth and magkano po babayaran?

  23. Hi andrea, yes, puede at dapat, para maging dependent mo ang baby mo. Bring any ID (school ID, puede ring birth cert or barangay cert kung wala ka pang ID) at 600 pesos for one quarter. Pay Jan to March para you can use it starting the day after payment. Starting Oct 1, nine monthly payments na ang kelangan, so dapat every month ka na magbayad or every quarter.

  40. hi mam,, ask ko lang po kung magagamit pa rin yung philhealth kahit 7months pregnant na nagaply ?

  41. Hi bianca, sorry hindi, kasi wala pa kayong marriage certificate. Dapat mag-register ka na ASAP sa Philhealth. Bring your ID and 600 pesos (for Jan to March 2017). Kung member ka, mako-cover din ang baby mo as dependent.

  42. hi po miss nora im 28 weeks pregnant 19 years old due date ko is april 6 or baka mas earlier pa this march. ask ko lang kung pwede po ba ako ma covered ng bf ko ?

  43. Hi Love, sorry hindi makaka-avail ang baby kasi hindi dependent ng grandparents ang baby (hindi puedeng dependent ang apo or grandchild; anak lang). Ang gawin ng pregnant minor ay humingi ng sariling indigent philhealth sa DSWD or local agency para covered ang sarili niya at ang baby niya.

  44. Tanong lang po ung pregnant woman who is less than 20 years old nakaka avail ng indigent phil health category ng parent niya. How about the new born baby maka avail ba dn siya? kasi 4ps member nman ung classification niya. Me bago bang policy this 2017? Na can avail na ung mother and the baby? Pakisagot. Thank u

  45. Yung 600 pesos po, hanggang anong month yung cover nya? Manganganak po kasi ako sa february.

  46. Hi Mary joy, kung meron ka na birth cert na ready diyan, sige dalhin mo lang, pero ID ang mas hinahanap nila. Kung walang ID, or expired ID, puede yong birth cert.

  47. Hindi napo ba kailangan ng NSO Birth certificate?

  48. Hi Mary Joy, yes, it’s good you’re planning to apply so you can cover also your baby. Bring your ID and pen and 600 pesos (1 quarter) or 1,200 (2 quarters). Pay for Oct to Dec this month. You can use this receipt starting Dec up to Mar 2017. For continued coverage, pay for Jan to Mar 2017 in Jan. Or you can pay for Oct to Mar right away.

  49. Hi po. Can I ask kung pwede napo ba akong kumuha ng philhealth. Now that I am pregnant and only 18yeras old. Tapos manganganak po ako next year na 19years old nako. And if ku g pwede na po, ano po yung mga requirements?

  50. Hi Cj, that’s true, if the pregnant woman is younger than 19 years old, ma-cover lang ang delivery niya kapag sa hospital, kasi gusto nila na ang mga young mothers ay sa hospital manganak. Maghanap ng small hospital na affordable ang singil, or magpa-checkup sa government hospital para doon manganak.

  51. Hi yung girlfriend ng kapatid ko is 18 years old and pero naginquire sila s lying in di daw sya macover kase 18 pa lang sya.is that true?

  52. Hi april mae, yes, puede. Oct to Dec quarter. Pag wala ka pang MDR, sa Philhealth ka magbayad so you can ask for your MDR.

  53. Hi po goodmorning. Pwede ho ba sa bayad center magbabayad ng contribution ko ?

  54. Thank you mam.nora such a big help. ???? god bless

  55. Hi April mae, yes, pay asap for Oct to Dec, so you can use Philhealth in Dec. If your MDR is no longer clear, pay at Philhealth so you can ask for a new MDR.

  56. Hi.hopefully po masagot niyo po ako Asap.
    Individual payer ho ako.last july-sept.2015 apply for membership ho. At since don na stop ko na ho yung contribution. And i will give birth this coming dec.16,2016 . If i pay from oct-dec.2016 . Still avail. Pa ho ba yung benefits.?

  57. Hi Angel, that’s great you’re now a Philhealth member, and that you were able to register quickly. Ok lang na wala pang ID. What you will file at the hospital are your Philhealth receipt, MDR and your Philhealth claim forms (usually meron sa hospital) – one for you and one for your baby’s newborn care. Keep your prenatal ORs and include it in your documents (1,500 for prenatal care, to be refunded by Philhealth). I don’t know if you know that the coverage for normal delivery is only 5k pag hospital and 6500 pag lying-in, and only 19k if Caesarean Section (CS)-dapat hospital… so you can prepare.

  58. Hi Ms. Nora! I applied for Philhealth membership earlier. It was successful and great as well! Kase wala pang 30mins tapos na agad ako ???? Wala pa silang available ID so I only got my MDR. Hndi ko nga lang sinabi dun na I’m applying because I’m pregnant. Ang sabi ko lang voluntary and personal. Okay lang po kaya yun?

  59. Hi Angel, yes, it’s for the best na you get your own Philhealth membership para ma-cover din yong baby mo as your dependent. If you use your parent’s Philhealth, your baby won’t be covered. Go to nearest Philhealth with your school ID. Fill up registration form. Check Informal Sector – No Income as your member status. Pay 600 pesos for the Oct-Dec quarter. Get your MDR and ID card, if available. This receipt can cover your March delivery, but it’s good that in Jan 2017, you pay also for Jan to March for your and your baby’s continuous coverage.

  60. I’m 18weeks pregnant, turning 20 this December, student and not yet a philhealth member. Hndi po ako sure pati yung mom ko kung sakop pa po ba ako ng philhealth nya. She advised me to apply for Phil health. Pwde po ba yun? Maaavail ko po kaya yung benefits kung ngayon lang po ako mag a apply? Due date ko po is March. Thanks!

  61. Hi lourrainne Joy, it will take you much time and effort to correct your birth certificate. It’s better that you register as Philhealth member so that your baby will also be covered by Philhealth. Just go to the nearest Philhealth with any ID or barangay certificate and register, get your MDR and ID card. Pay 600 pesos (for 3 months) and get your receipt. When will you give birth?

  62. Well my father is a member of Philhealth but he is not written in my Birth certificate, due to the fact that my mother didn’t put him in my birth certificate. What will I do ? Is my case same with this example? So am I capable in applying for my Phil health to be used in my pregnancy, because I am a minor?
