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.

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.

  12. Ask ko lng po pag OFW po ba at nag bayad s POEA ng OEC (Overseas Employment Certificate) eh ksm n dun yung philhealth membership? kung hindi pede po b mag apply dito on behalf ng relatives n ns abroad? At kung mbyaran yung required premium ng member m aavail po ba agad ng beneficiary yung benefits ng philhealth?

    Reply
    • Vacationing and re-hired overseas Filipino workers will have to pay their premium contributions to the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) separately from their payments to the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) for their Overseas Employment Certificates (OECs).This development is in line with the decision of the POEA to implement a single collection policy starting on the same date. The POEA will only be collecting fees for OEC and no longer for PhilHealth and Pag-IBIG Fund.
      OFW-members shoul pay their PhilHealth premium contributions first before going to the POEA for their OECs. This will secure their social health insurance coverage, as well as that of their legal dependents, for their peace of mind.
      Entitlement to health care benefits for OFWs and their legal dependents begins on the day the premium is paid, and is effective for the period covered by the contribution.

  36. Hi! I just registered yesterday to get my Philhealth Member Data Record but the officer just gave me a piece of paper that is not the Member Data Record as far as I know (it doesn’t have the list of heirs and it’s just like a letter with my Philhealth number) and the membership status was Informal Economy Informal Sector even though I checked Formal Economy Private. (I just checked it when I got home cause I’m so tired when I register at Philhealth, my mistake I guess for not checking) What should I do with it cause our company is requesting for my Philhealth Member Data Record/ID? Thanks. (first job)

    • Give that paper to your employer, they just need your Number anyway for them to register you as one of their employees. Also, keep a copy of your Philhealth number because you’ll be using it all your life or when you change employer in the furture

  43. Hello,

    I already accomplished my Philhealth by visiting one of their branches, I filled up the form, waited for few minutes, and I received a letter with my lifetime PIN (Philhealth Identification Number) upon accomplishment..

    however, my soon-to-be company is requiring me to accomplish a “Signed Philhealth Member Registration Form” , “Two photocopies of Philhealth ID or MDR” but I don’t have any idea how to get that ID or MDR, note that I was already issued a PIN from one of the branches.

    Do I need to register online and update my status? Thanks in advance! Any help would be appreciated.

    Reply
    • same problem here. I am a newly hired employee and my agency wants me to submit MDR. Can i have MDR even if i didnt have any payments yet since i am a new member. i have my PIN already secured from online registration. enough na po ba yung PIN lng isubmit sa agency or MDR tlga kaso nga po new member pa lng po ako. Galing na po ako philhealth office sbi e mgbayad daw ako 600 for me to have an MDR. Ako po ba dpat gumawa nun or yung agency na. please enlighten me about this since the agency is expecting me to submit it on monday. Your response will be highly appreciated po. Thanks in advance

      Reply
      • Since you are not yet active member, you won’t be able to have premiums recorded on your account thus no MDR. Tell your agency that you are only about to start paying premiums through your employment with them.

  46. Hi,

    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.

  63. Hello, 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.

    • 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.

    • 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!

      Reply
      • (1) Does “automatic coverage for seniors” mean they don’t have to pay premiums, and get benefits right away ?
        (2) Since its automatic, what documents are required ?
        (3) Is the senior required to come in person, or a proxy, or is online registration ok ?
        Thanks for your info.

        • 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)

    • 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: http://www.philhealth.gov.ph/downloads/membership/pmrf_revised.pdf and submit to Philhealth. Bring your valid IDs

      • I retired at age 57. Therefore, I have to continue contribution as individually paying member. How can I obtain my former Philhealth Member. My former employer Career Shipmanagement Philippines, do not have records about my philhealth number. Thank you

        I was former OFW who stopped working since January 2014.

  129. nagregister po ako last january 27,2014 morning sa online registration ng Philhealth. Wala po akong natanggap na confirmation message. hindi ko po tuloy alam ung Philhealth number o naregister po ba talaga ako. pero ang sabi pagkatapos ko magregister may nakalagay sa website page na “MEMBER INFORMATION SUCCESSFULLY SAVED”. ANO PO BA ANG DAPAT KUNG MABISANG GAWIN?

  131. Normally I don’t learn post on blogs, however I wish to say that this write-up very pressured me to try and do it! Your writing taste has been surprised me. Thanks, quite nice article.

  132. 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.
