Philhealth Benefits Requirements

Updated on December 10, 2012
Source

Why do we need Philhealth

  • Helpful to health care expenses
  • We need insurance
  • It’s mandatory to employees (private, government, OFW, household)
  • Health is wealth
  • It’s frickin affordable

How to claim Philhealth benefits and what are the requirements? Philhealth is one of the major health insurance providers in the Philippines and it serves sufficient and affordable social health insurance coverage to all Filipinos. Whilst it is government owned and controlled corporation, it’s the most affordable health insurance service in the country. Working as wing of the Department of Health, it is very important to be a member of Philhealth unless of course you’re not working and don’t want to be insured and don’t want any help with your medicare needs. Every employee, private or government employed, household helper, sea-based OFW automatically becomes a member of philhealth according to Republic Act 7875 or National Health Insurance Act of 1995, as amended by RA 9241.

Philhealth is continuously improving its inquiry system. Oh I wish there would be an online inquiry that could serve anytime. It’s gonna be cool to have text inquiry too just like of that of the SSS. Anyway, back to my main topic, what are the requirements in claiming for Philhealth benefits when you’re hospitalized or confined in the hospital? The answers are listed below. Read on.

Philhealth Membership Category and Documents Needed

Employed Member

  • Philhealth Claim Form 1
  • Updated MDR (Member Data Record)

Individual Paying Member

  • Philhealth Claim Form 1
  • Premium payment receipts
  • Updated MDR

Overseas Worker / OFW

  • Philhealth Claim Form 1
  • Premium payment receipts and/or
  • Updated MDR

Sponsored Member

  • Philhealth Claim Form 1
  • Valid Philhealth ID (Identification Card,) and/or
  • Updated MDR

Lifetime Retirees

  • Philhealth Claim Form 1
  • Philhealth Lifetime Member ID (Identification Card)
  • Updated MDR

Steps on Availment of Philhealth Benefits

The following are the usual instructions and procedures on how to avail Philhealth benefits upon confinement or hospitalization. If you’re a member of Philhealth or a qualified dependent of a member, you can file for hospital bills deduction or reimburse some amount from your bills according to health coverage. Before you do, take note that the following conditions must be met:

  • Have paid at least 3 months of premium contributions within the immediate 6 months before confinement. (9 months of premiums within the last 12 months -for pregnancy cases, dialysis, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and other selected surgical procedures)
  • Be confined in an accredited hospital by Philhealth for at least 24 hours due to sickness requiring hospitalization. Also don’t forget that your attending doctor must also be Philhealth-accredited.
  • Your availment is covered in the 45 days allowance for room and board under your Philhealth benefits.


2 Ways to Make Use of your Philhealth Benefits

Philhealth Benefits By Automatic deduction

First, submit to the billing section of the hospital the requirements mentioned from the documents needed above. (I listed them earlier as each member has different doc requirements)

Talk to your attending doctor regarding the remaining fee for their service over the professional fee benefit you’ll get availing your Philhealth.

Then once your documents are completed and fees are finalized, the billing section will compute all hospital bills and deduct your Philhealth benefits.

If the member or beneficiary was confined abroad, the following documents must be submitted within 180 days after discharge from hospital:

  • Philhealth claim form 1
  • MDR or supporting documents
  • Original official receipts
  • Medical certificate written in English (with final diagnosis, confinement period and services rendered)

Do you have a Philhealth account?

See results

Philhealth Benefits By Reimbursement or Direct Filling

This is when members and qualified dependents choose to make use their Philhealth benefits after they were confined or discharged from the hospital. You are required to submit the listed documents mentioned earlier within 60 days after you are discharged together with the following docs.

  • Philhealth Claim Form 2 (this is to be filled up by the hospital and your doctor)
  • OR / Official Receipts
  • Operative record for surgical procedures done


Finally, Philhealth will send you (to your address) a BPN (benefit payment notice)


That’s a wrap. Hope this post was helpful. Before I forget, all Philhealth forms are available to download for free from the company’s official website. The most demand Philhealth contribution table is also displayed there. I just hope the website loads faster than today coz I know lots of people prefer online inquiry than going to any Philhealth branch offices nationwide.


- an important form in registering as member of Philhealth.

      Good day po, almost two months po akong galing nanganak at dun nalaman namin na ang Philhealth ng asawa ko ay hindi updated at hindi rin posted. He was employed in Philippine Coast Guard, and his monthly contributions is active because automatic na deducted sa Payslip niya..

      Ano po ba ang gagawin namin to settle this issue?

      Good day. Magtatanong lang po sana. Last week of November dumating ang BPN notice galing philhealth para sa refund namin nung naconfine sa hospital yung asawa ko. Nag inquire ako sa philhealth office dito sa amin and sabi sa hospital daw kukuhanin ang refund. Dinala ko po yung letter sa Hospital na pinagdalhan sa asawa ko, sabi hintayin namin text nila para dun sa refund. Ilang linggo na kaming naghihintay wala pa din advise kung kailan namin pwedeng makuha ang refund. Binalikan ko dun at tinanong ang lage sagot sa akin wala daw ang taong naka assign sa Philhealth claims at sumunod na balik ko wala daw ang supervisor na mag i-issue nang tseke. Kagulo eh, di ko alam kung reasonable ba sila sa puntong iyan, pakiramdam ko, refund mo na nga, pahihirapan ka pa. Tanong ko po, gaano ba katagal ang pagprocesso nang hospital (validation and all the other stuff) bago nila mabigay ang refund? Gusto ko pong malaman para alam ko kung hanggang saan ko hihintayin ang text or advise nang hospital.

      hello, just wanna ask if its combine case. Ive been revived and into ICU for 7 days because of asthma attack and high risk pneumonia. and the nearest hospital is a private hospital and they only deducted Php 9,000 for the Php 60,000 bill. is that the right deduction? that happened last July 10, 2013 and I still not receive the BPN or any proof of billing. What should I do?

      my father in law is now 62 years old but an active member of philhealth... he was hospitalized a couple of days ago... when we were about to file our philhealth claims, the hospital staff said that my father in law cannot avail of the benefit bacause he has insuficcient contributions... since he is a senior citizen, we resort to using his son's philhealth instead but the hospital staff refused to accept because according to them, my father in law is an active member, therefore, he cant be a beneficiary even if he's already a senior citizen. is it true?

      Hi. I am a member of philheath as individual payer or self-employed. I live here in Dubai for 7 years and my sister in the philippines the one paying for my premium. I found out that my parents as senior citizen are not my dependents, so I asked her to update my dependents. I sent her authorization letter, Id's, passport and visa copy. She also brought my birth certificate as well hers too. But unfortunately, they told her that I need to come personally to update my dependents because im self-employed. Im under husband's visa and I do not work here. I cannot just come and spend money for ticket just to update it. What should I do? Thanks....

      I am undergoing cataract operation on my RIGHT EYE. How much will Philhealth reimburse me for the procedure? If I undergo a subsequent cataract surgery for my LEFT EYE, what are the guidelines of Philhealth for me to be able to claim for this second surgery? Is there a time period required between the two surgeries so that I can claim for both surgeries? Thank you.
