Hindi. Merong validity dates ang Philhealth card or document ng isang Sponsored o Indigent.  Nire-renew ito ng mga sponsors depende sa renewal policies nila: DSWD, non-profit organizations, local government units, or other government agencies. Dapat magpa-renew bago mag-expire ang  Philhealth card or certification.

Paano ma-verify ang contribution records sa mga hospitals or clinics na walang online system dahil nasa remote areas sila?

Magkakaroon ng offline process na sisimulan ng Philhealth sa mga remote hospitals or clinics.
