How to become a Member of Philhealth? – Requirements and Steps to Register

Do you wanna be a member of Philhealth and want you and your beneficiaries avail of the benefits? Know the steps and requirements here either if you are currently unemployed, employed, or an OFW.

Philhealth is the leading health insurance company in the Philippines and it is administered by the government so many Filipinos rely on it so much. The monthly contribution is so affordable and it is the cheapest in the country so being an active member of Philhealth help so much.

Philhealth Requirements for Unemployed Members (Individually Paying Member)

If you are currently unemployed or either self-employed, you can register as an Individually Paying Member. This is also being referred as “voluntary member” by some. To become one, you must submit the following requirements at the Philhealth office near you. If you are a foreigner living in the Philippines, you can also become a member classified under this type.

  • PMRF (Philhealth Member Registration Form) – Accomplished and properly filled out. This form can also be downloaded online for free
  • Photocopy of NSO authenticated Birth Certificate or valid IDs or any supporting documents to prove identity
  • Photocopy of supporting documents for your beneficiaries
  • Photocopy of Alien Certificate of Registration (ACR) issued by the Bureau of Immigration (for foreigners only)

You will then be given and issued your Philhealth Number and will be asked to pay your contributions. Keep your PN because this will be used for life. Make sure you will be paying your premiums continuously to ensure you can avail benefits any time.

how to become philhealth member

Requirements for Employed Members

The requirements for employed members are the same as listed above for Individually Paying Member. Just include your employed status in the PMRF.

Philhealth Requirements for OFW

For OFW (Overseas Filipino Workers), you can register and pay your contributions once you register at the POEA as OFW. Requirements are:

  • PMRF
  • Supporting documents of beneficiaries
  • Any proof of being an active OFW

If you already are a member of Philhealth, you can just pay your contributions and update your status as OFW.

If you are outside the Philippines and wants to become a member of Philhealth, you can just submit the following requirements to any Philhalth office:

  • PMRF
  • Philhealth Premium Payment Slip (PPPS)
  • Photocopy of acceptable valid IDs
  • Pay your contributions to accredited collecting agents of Philhealth abroad

Sponsored Members of Philhealth

Philhealth Members Sponsored by LGUs, National Government, congress and Indigents belonging to the lowest 25% of the Philippine population can become Sponsored Members by submitting the usual requirements to their sponsors or at Philhealth office

Philhealth Online Registration is also now serving to cater everyone who wants to register online instead of going to the office or branch.

For transactions and personal questions, go to your Philhealth branch and inquire about it. For comments and forum discussions, feel free to leave them below.

    Thank you for every other excellent post. Where else may anyone get that type of info in such an ideal method of writing? I’ve a presentation next week, and I am on the look for such information.

  2. jasmine says

    good day!
    i just want to ask, kakamember ko lang po kahapon and i was shocked of the super fast process…i brought my nso birth cert and id pa naman because i thought it will be needed. but i just filled out a piece of paper my just my name, birthdate & place, address, and civil status…i just gave it to a personnel, she input the data in the computer, printed out a paper that wrote i’m now a member and has a PN already…it only took 2mins i guess…
    so my question is, how will i process my parents as my dependants and i was planning to pay already for this whole year…can you give me an insight about this…i deeply appreciate your time and effort reading this ang hoping for a reply…
    thank you very much.

  7. KC Dizon says

    yung husband ko member na ng philhealt since 1999… nagamit din nmin yung philhealt niya nung ma admit sa hospital anak namin… pero nung 2008 nagresign na xa sa work nia hindi na namin yun nahulugan… pwedi pa ba naming ituloy yun dati niang number or nid niang mag apply ulit ng new..??

    • Marifel Dungo says

      Yup it is important and advisable na ituloy kasi you need to be an active member to be eligible for Philhealth benefits. Tulad din ng SSS yan. Pag di ka active, di ka eligible sa benefits. You dont need to apply for new Philhealth number. Just use your old Philhealth number and update your membership by filling out PMRF form. Tick the box “for updating” purpose. You can download the form here: and submit to Philhealth. Bring your valid IDs

  8. KC Dizon says

    1 question pa po sana… kung meron na pong philhealt yung husband q,, pwedi pa din bang mag apply aq ng sakin?? thanks po…

  9. lori bolima says

    pwede pa po ba mag member ang 59 years old na pero single po sya..hanggang ilang taon po ang pwede pa magpamember sa philhealth??? thank you …

    • Marifel Dungo says

      For retirees or old age who did not meet the required 120 months for Lifetime Members, you can apply as Individually Paying Member instead. You can also apply as Individually Paying Member if you are not a dependent of a Philhealth member. In your case, pwede po kayo as IPM

  10. Mimi says

    Hi :) Gusto ko lang po tanungin kung okay lang ba if to be followed na ang supporting documents for the beneficiaries? Kasi nasa malayo sila at wala akong supporting documents nila. Thank you po :)

      • mj says

        • Fehl says

          Yes, you can update your membership as Self-employed not-professional under the Individually Paying Member type or Household if applicable

  11. aila rala says

    • Marifel Dungo says

      Just bring the mentioned requirements in the article and fill up a form called PMRF to register as Individual Paying Member, then start paying your contributions. If you’re working, just update your membership into EMPLOYED

  12. daisy says

    Hi just wanna ask. what if member napo nang Philhealth tapos na stop na ang pag pay premium contribution for 6 years na but planning to pay 12 months of premium contribution this month, can I avail the benefits if in case need magpa-hospitalized this month? (huwag naman po sana hehe) Thanks!

    • Fehl says

      It depends with the type of availment. In order to make sure you will receive benefits, stay active and pay continuously

  15. jaja says

    • Fehl says

      Yes, it is advisable you resume it to become active and to be eligible to benefits. Just fill out PMRF to update your new membership status as self-employed or individual paying member if you are voluntary member. I know right now the minimum contribution is P150 per month

  16. kaye says

    hello po tnong q lng po qng mybbyaran po b pg mgpapamember, at paano po mkakakuha ng id? thanks.

    • Fehl says

      There is no fee in registration as a member in Philhealth. The money you will pay will be your monthly premiums.

  17. christine says

  18. jhomel says

    • Fehl says

      Oh no that would cause some errors and double registration. Please go to the Philhealth office and have your PIN personally to avoid major problems in the future

      • julie says

Tnx pl

        • Fehl says

          You don’t need to apply for a new PIN if you had one before. You only need to verify it at Philhealth if you want to resume your monthly premiums

  19. Mauriedel Hernandez says

    Hi, I would just like to ask, I’ve been a contributing member for almost 9 years. I have recently stopped working and decided to be a stay at home mom. I would still like to continue my membership/ contribution and would like to know how to do so? Also I dont know if I already have a number since the company that I have worked for are the ones who automatically takes care of the contributions.

    • Fehl says

      You must go to Philhealtha nd bring your Valid ID to verify your Number. Then fill up your PMRF form to resume your membership.

  20. wilmar says

    I already have the PIN received from Philhealth online and the PDF of MDR. So how can I get my ID? from cebu

  22. Nina says

    Hi. My last day of work was on May 30, 2014. My previous employer paid contributions up to April 2014. I am currently confined. What are the steps to change my status to individually paying member? I don’t have May 2014 contribution can I pay this as individual member to be able to avail Philhealth discount now? Thanks!

    • Fehl says

      You can still pay the month of May this June. It’s not yet considered late. If you want to switch into Individual Paying Member, go to Philhealtha nd file PMRF and update your new status as Individual Paying member or voluntary member

  23. Franz Elmer Nocon says

    bakit ganun nag e-registration ako tapos ang sabi mag intay daw ako ng confirmation email para matapos ung application. 24hrs na wala pa akong natatanggap. hmmm

  26. clarise says

        ano po ang steps ? , madali nalang po ba kung card nalang ang kukunin ?
        because i registered OL . may kailangan pa bang fill up’an?

        • Fehl says

          The ID Card is applied personally at Philhealth. I wonder why you need it though coz Philhealth Number is what you need when you pay your contributions.

  27. catherine wycoco says

    ask kolng po qng pwede q din ilagay name ng panganay qng anak the problem is d pa xa nakaapilyido as wycoco kundi dela cruz pa dn xa kc d pa kami kinakasal nung father nya nung time na pina nanganak q panganay q but now kasal na kami ng asawa q since 2002 pa pero d q pa napapaayos BC ng panganay q

    • Fehl says

      I suggest you first fix the name in the Birth Certificate of your child coz everything will base from the BC including schools, passport, etc..

  28. catherine wycoco says

    nakapag pauna na dn po aq ng application at nagbigay po aq ng 300 nung 2003 pa pero d q po xa nahulugan since nun pa

  29. Adeen Gaoaen says

    I registered online and received my PIN. I am just wondering if I can pay my contributions in any philhealth collecting partner or at a philhealth office. Thank you.

    • Fehl says

      Yes you can pay at any Philhealth accredited payment center. They are also at some SM and Robinsons malls

  33. g.blones says

    THANK U po sa reply…may question pa po me,,. blones po ang nasa id ko kc nga po married ako dun, pero ang ginamit ko sa pag anak ko ngaun sa ospital ay surname ko nung dalaga.which is liwag, at un ang nakalagay sa BC pero de leon po ang surname ng anak ko ngaun na ilalagay as my dependent.panu po un?

  34. irene says

    Maam member po ako ng philheath tapos yong anak ko turn 22 last may ano po dapat gawin para maging member yong anak ko? At kailan cya pwede magamit? Thanks

    • Fehl says

      If your son is working, he’ll become a member of Philhealth then coz it’s mandatory. If he’s not working, he can register as Individual Paying Memeber

  35. Rowena H. says

    Goodevening maam. Ask ko lang po kung ok lang po ba kung live birth (not NSO) at BIR ID lang po para makaapply nang PhilHealth?

    • Fehl says

      BIR ID is not an acceptable ID. Submit SSS, GSIS, Driver’s license, passport or any other government ID. They require NSO authenticated but you can try

  37. Marjorie says

    I sent a phil health application online. And received a successfully saved reply. But its been 30 minutes and no confirmation received in the email. Thanks

  38. Marjorie says

    If a married woman with one child joins philhealh online. Does she have to attach with her online application, copies of their 3 birth certificates AND the marriage license? Thanks

    • Fehl says

      Yes, because you are listing them as dependents / beneficiaries. If you won’t list them, then don’t submit their BC

  39. joevamhae says

    I forgot to add my birth certificate to my philhealth online application. I inquired and philhealth sent me a website link to add it. The link does not work. I contacted philhealth 3 days ago that the link does not work. No reply yet. What link or email address can I send my birth certificate to?? Thank you

  40. Marjorie says

    Nkadalawang beses ko ng enimail ang hinihingi ko sana yong link na pwedi kung maview ang application ko. Para upload ko sana yong missing supporting documents ko. Hindi naman cla nagrereply its been 4 days na inemail ko cla about the status of my registration.

    • Fehl says

  41. Ma. Violeta Getalado says

    Good day po!

    Hello, i would want to register to PhilHealth but i don’t have any ID’s yet, even school ID, will i be able to register with just my Birth Certificate?
    thanks a lot. =)

    • Fehl says

      If you’re not minor anymore yes, you can register as Individual Paying member. Use your supporting documents (Postal ID, NBI clearance, etc.), I think they accept them for anyone who doesn’t have IDs

  43. Apong says

    Hello po, Member napo ako ng Philhealth nong nag tatrabaho pa ako sa companya, pero nong na tanggal ako, di ko na nahulogan, tanong lang po, ma verify pba yung account ko sa philhealth or ppa member na lang ako ulit?

    Good day!
    Tanong ko lang po.
    My dad used to be a member but his contributions stopped for four years now.
    Now he’s confined and hindi magamit yung PhilHealth nya coz di na xa active.
    If in case i.update nya again ang membership nya, is it possible na pwede nya mapa.reimburse ang nabayaran nya sa pagka confine nya ngayon?
    And if yes, mga ilang months po bago makuha nya ang reimbursement?
    Thanks po! :-)

    • Fehl says

      If the member is not active, he/she cannot is not eligible for benefits. Philhealth is an insurance company, if you are not insured (active), you cannot get benefits

  51. annaly says

      If you want to become voluntary member, update your status as Individual Paying Member and submit PMRF form, attach your beneficiaries NSO Birth certificate

  52. MIguel Lagera says

    Hello, question lang po regarding requirements for registration for self-employed member. Nakalagay kasi dun sa nabasa ko na need ng NSO or Valid ID. Does this mean ok lang kung ID lang ang dalhin ko, kahit wala nang NSO? If so, How many Valid IDs do I need to bring?

    I don’t know if I’ll be notified if a reply has been sent dito sa question ko na to pero hopefully you can send a reply as well sa email provided.


    • Fehl says

      Yes, NSO BC and valid ID are the basic requirements for first-time applicants. Bring 2 valid IDs para if ever di pwede yung 1, you still have another one to show them

      • ellie says

        Hi ask ko lang member po yung parent ko sa phil health bali indigence sila. Paano kung expired na ang phil health card pwede parin bah yun magamit. Wala kasing pakialam dswd sa amin. Anu dapat gawin namin. Pag over 18 na di na po bah pwede isama sa phil health ng parents

        • Fehl says

          Philhealth card is just a card. What matter is your parent is paying her Philhealth monthly premiums. If she is, then she can always avail benefits. For 18 and above, you can already register for your own Philhealth account, if you’re employed, submit your Philhealth number to your employer, if not employed, register as Individual Paying member (voluntary)

      There is now a new law granting automatic Philhelath membership to all senior citizens. Your mom is 60, she will be automatically covered. You must help her go to Philhelath and update her membership for the new law for senior citizens. Cheers!

  66. Marie says

    I want to become a member of Philhealth. Before I am a member of Philippine Medical Care Commission (PMCC) in 1986 to 1995. I even used the Medicare benefits in 1995 when I gave birth to my eldest. Now that I am 49 years and self-employed, member of SSS. I wish to continue my contributions/ membership in PMCC that is now Philhealth. Is it possible?

    Hello, just want to ask what is the minimum age requirement for one to apply for PhilHealth? Can one apply if he/she is 20 years old (a fresh graduate, to add)? Thank you.

  78. jim says

    Dati na po ako nagbabayad as a voluntary paying member. Pwd po ba itigil ko na ang pagbabayad ko dahil ako senior citizen na.

    • Fehl says

      I suggest you go to Philhelath and update your account as senior citizens are now automatically covered to Philhealth benefits. If you won’t update your account, Philhealth won’t know you’re a senior.

  82. Tuper says

    I am planning to apply PhilHealth but i am confused because the company I applied they ask me for PMRF and Philhealth number. What is the first thing to do?

    • Fehl says

      If you don’t have a Philhealth number yet and ever, you must register first to become a member of Philhealth to have a number. PMRF is the form you need

    • Fehl says

      I suggest you update your account before you pay para updated and pay at Philhealth mismo para Official ang receipt. Pag bayad center kasi nabubura ang receipt

    Hi good afternoon. ask ko lang sna balak kasi mag apply yung mother in law ko ng philhealth kya wla sya record sa nso, ok lang ba valid id at yung birth cert. from municipality ang ipresent pag nag apply sya?

    thank you

  100. Anna says


    Just want to ask po.

    I am already a philhealth member since 2010. Now, I registered online thinking that it was like SSS that i have to create an online account to view my contributions or update my details etc. But I was surprised when I received their email advising me to wait for their reply to know my PIN. And wala pa din palang application ang Philhealth for viewing contributions. So, I immediately sent an email to the address they provided as contact and i inquire and told them to Cancel my online registration to avoid me having 2 different PINs. I think the law prohibits having multiple PINs?

    sa ngaun wala pa pong reply from philhealth. But i am hoping na makita nila ung records ko at hindi na i allow ung online registration that i made. I dont want to encounter conflicts in the future. Hay. It is so stressful.. XD i should have researched if philhealth already has that application before goiing on their website. lesson learned. Hope you can share what you know about this instance. Im worried. :/

    Thank you so much.

    • Fehl says

      I suggest you go to Philhealth office and verify if the registration you did went through. If it did, request to cancel it and just use your old PIN
