Philhealth Dependents — Who Are Qualified?

September 2, 2011 by Nors | Filed under philhealth.

Updated April 17, 2014

Ito ang mga puedeng Philhealth dependents:

1.  Spouse (Wife or Husband)

- Dapat hindi siya active Philhealth member.
If your wife or husband is previously a Philhealth member, have her/him write a letter or a statement that she/he is no longer an active Philhealth member. Puedeng idagdag kung bakit at kung kelan siya tumigil paying her/his Phihealth premiums.
- Bring a copy of your marriage certificate.

2. Children

Your children are qualified dependents as long as they are:
- below 21 years old (Bring birth certificate)
- unmarried
- unemployed

(Dapat below 21 years old, unmarried and unemployed. Kung unmarried pero 21 years old na or older, hindi na puede. Kung unemployed pero 21 years old na or older, hindi na rin puede.)

- puedeng 21 years old or older if the child is suffering from physical or mental disability that makes him/her totally dependent on you for support (Bring birth certificate and certification from a doctor that the child is mentally or physically disabled)
- puedeng illegitimate child — parents are not married — as long as the birth certificate shows that the Philhealth applicant is one of the parents
- puedeng adopted child (Bring a copy of court decree of adoption)
- puedeng stepchild (Bring marriage contract between Philhealth applicant and biological parent. Bring also birth certificate of stepchild)

- puedeng foster child (Bring document issued by the DSWD)

Note:  Children under 21 who are single but will soon give birth to a child, or already have a child or children are advised to become members so that their children will have Philhealth coverage as dependents.

3.  Parents

Your parents are qualified as dependents if they are:
- 60 years old or older
- not active Philhealth members

- Puede na ang parents younger than 60 years old kung meron silang permanent disability and they are totally dependent on their children for subsistence (Philhealth will require proof).
- Bring your birth certificate and the birth certificates of your parents (or any document showing parents’ dates of birth).
- puedeng stepparent, if biological parents are already deceased (Bring your birth certificate, marriage certificate between your biological parent and your stepparent, and any document showing stepparent’s date of birth. Bring na rin death certificates of biological parents)
- puedeng adoptive parents (Bring Court Decree of Adoption and any document showing adoptive parents’ dates of birth.)


- Bring original and xerox copies of papers needed, baka lang gusto nilang tingnan yong original.
- Make sure your dependents are written as dependents in your Member Data Record (MDR) so that your Philhealth benefit claiming process becomes easier.
- To apply, fill out the Philhealth Member Registration Form (PMRF).
Check “For Enrollment” — if new applicant
Check “For Updating” — if changing civil status, names, birth dates or adding or changing dependents
- Bring birth certificates, marriage certificates or other relevant documents when updating Member Data Record.

Sinu-sino ang mga hindi puedeng dependents?

1.   Children 21 years old or older (except those with disability)
2.  Married children
3.  Employed children (kasi member na sila through their employers)
4.  Siblings (mga kapatid)
5.  Parents younger than 60 years old who have no permanent disability
6.  Aunts or uncles
7.  Parents-in-law
8.  Cousins
9.  Sisters or brothers-in-law

    Hi Admin,

    Im 33 yr old self-employed but im planning to pay (whole year so 175×12 tama po bah?) for voluntary contribution this mo. FEB 2013. My father is already 60 and I guess not regular payer sa philhealth so ano po ang initial move po pra madeclare ko xa dependent since member npo xa? also my mum is turning 60 this year pwede ko ba din po xa ideclare dependent? Lastly i have a niece who is mentally challenge turning 4 this year paano ko po xa ideclare as dependent kc my problema po sa NSO (the child is carrying the mother’s last name) single dad po kapatid ko since ng asawa na ung INA nang bata at kasal npo lst year. medjo roller coaster ride po tlga ano po..pxenxa na stress ko yata kau..pls be an angel.big tnx!

    • Nors says:

      Hi Adia, you let your father sign a letter to Philhealth, asking Philhealth to deactivate his membership and to register him as your dependent. Bring your birth certificate (orig and copy) and proof of your father’s age (senior citizen ID or his birth certificate). The same with your mother when she turns 60, except the letter since she’s not a member. Or if your father has accumulated 120 monthly Philhealth premiums, he can be a Free Lifetime Member; he applies to Philhealth with his retirement papers:
      About your niece, sad to say, hindi puedeng dependents ang nieces or nephews; dapat children of members, as evidenced by birth certificates. Hope I had been an angel :) best regards

    • perlyn says:

      good da.may husband is an OFW at gusto niya ilagay as one of his dependents, pero hindi pa po kasi kami kasal..ok lang po b u at anu status po ilagay niya?thanks

  2. ivy cepillo says:

    good day po!! ask ko lang po kung after kong ikasal sa hindi Filipino citizen, ay pde ko b syang maging dependent..ano po ang best advice nyo slamat po


      good day” ask ko lang po sna kung covered p ung byenan ko s philhealth ng mister ko n anak nya.hindi po sya declared as dependent s MDR ng asawa ko.
      mag uundergo po kc ng major operation ang aking byenan this month. if ever po n hindi cya covered, pwede p po b cyang ideclare? ano po ang mga dapat gwin? ska, kung skali po, gano po kabilis ang processing.

      • Nors says:

        Hi Rosalie, yes, your in-law can be your husband’s dependent if she’s 60 years old or older. Your husband can update his MDR at Philhealth by presenting his IDs, birth certificate (orig and xerox) and his mother’s senior citizen ID or birth certificate (proof of age). His mother can avail immediately as dependent as long as your husband is updated with his contributions.

  3. Mary Cris says:

    hello…good afternoon poh….ask ko lang poh if dependent ako sa philhealth ng father ko im running to 20 na poh kc this comming march at manganganak poh ako april magagamit poh ba namin philhealth nya sa panganganak ko d poh ako kasal at unemployed poh ako..dependent poh ba ako sa philhealth nya…

    • Nors says:

      Hi Mary Cris, yes, eligible ka as dependent kasi below 21 ka pa rin by April 2013, at unemployed and unmarried. Basta updated sa Philhealth payments ang father mo. Ask your father to get his Philhealth ID.

  4. Mary Cris says:

    hello good afternoon poh..ask ko lang poh if dependent pa poh ba ako sa philhealth ng father ko im running 20 age of this comming march poh and manganganak poh ako april ask ko lang poh if pwede namin magamit philhealth ng father ko d pa poh ako kasal at unemployed pa poh ako…

  5. Marlyn says:

    Hi good day! Ang kuya ko ay member ng philhealth kasama sa benificiary po niya ang tatay ko. ngayon po gusto ko din isama as benificiary ang tatay ko sa philhealth ko. ang tanong ko po pwedi ba isama ulit ang tatay ko sa philhealth ko as benificiary ko? para just in case ma hospital siya may pagpipilian kami kung kanino philhealth ang gamitin niya kc ang kuya ko nasa other country. Thanks for the reply.

    • Nors says:

      Hi Marlyn, yes, puede mong iparegister ang father mo as your dependent. Bring orig and xerox copy of your birth certificate and any document to prove that your father is 60 years old or older, such as senior citizen’s ID or his birth certificate.

  6. mei says:

    good am po. pwede ko po bang gamitin maiden name ko pag apply ng philhealth? and dependent ang anak ko sa father nya na member ng philhealth, kaso nasa abroad. pwede bang gmitin ito ng anak ko. i’ m not legally separated. need you advice

    • Nors says:

      Hi mei, your child can use his/her father’s Philhealth. Ask for the Philhealth receipts, or authorization letter from him to update and get his MDR. Show your marriage certificate to Philhealth (orig and xerox) and copies of his IDs. But there would be a problem if it’s not outright deduction, and a check would be issued. It would be issued in the father’s name.
      About using maiden name with Philhealth, check first Name of Mother in your child’s birth certificate. You should use that name in your Philhealth, because you need to submit your child’s birth certificate to register the child as your dependent.


    thank u very much for ur immediate answer. i still have one question, pano po kung wla cya birth certificate, wla as in hindi po cya na iregister? ano po ang dpat gwin? sk po kung mag file po ba husband ko, magagamit n po kya un for his operation this month?

  8. Ann says:

    Dear Mam,

    Gusto ko pong magtanong,dati po magkasama sa SSS ang philhealth,ano po ang mangyayari sa philihealth contribution now you are separated entities at makakasama ba yan sa length ng premiums ko. dati akong OFW at may id card na, expired ang premium ko january 2013.pwede bang magvoluntary and how much.

    Isa pa pong question,sister ko po diagnosed magdialysis nong Dec 2012, pwede po bang magvoluntary contribution sya, shes 39 years old.gusto po namin sana makaavail ng benefits.

    Thanks in advance and awaiting for your reply.


    • Nors says:

      Hi Ann, yes, both of you can become Voluntary members. 150 pesos per month. Your sister registers at the nearest Philhealth branch with her IDs or birth certificate. She can apply for the Individually Paying Contract (IPC) and pay 1 year or 2 or 3 years in advance so she can use her coverage after 3 months. For you: you also fill-up the registration form; you check FOR UPDATING. Bring your IDs too.

  9. Tom says:

    Sir, OFW poh ako updated po ang payment ko sa Philhealth tanung ko lang poh kung puedi kung maging dependent ang tita kung single, half brother kung may asawa, at ang Mother ng wife ko ksi registered lang ung anak ko at asawa ko.

    Salamat More Power..

    • Nors says:

      Hi Tom, sorry, they cannot be your dependents. You can only have 3 sets of dependents: spouse; children under 21 years old, unmarried and unemployed; and parents 60 years old or older. best regards

  10. noemi says:

    Good day mam Nors,

    Ask ko lang po i am an active member of philhealth pero balak ko po sanang ituloy na lang ng 1 year yun payment para makabuo po ako ng 120 monthly Philhealth premiums so at the age of 60 I could be a lifetime member of philhealth.

    So after po na mabuo ko yung 120 premiums I will stop to pay my philhealth at magaply as dependent ng husband ko po na OFW…maaari po ba ang ganung procedure?in case na mgpasa ako ng letter sa philhealth to inactivate my membership to become a qualified dependent of my husband? Hindi po ba ako magkaproblema as I reach the age of 60 to use my 120 monthly premiums for a Lifetime membership?

    Para po kasi isa na lang ang babayaran namin magreresign na din po kasi ako sa work ko this year…in addition question din po, pwede din po ba ang ganun sa SSS?

    Thank you po and God Bless!!!

  11. ysel says:

    gudam po tanung ko lng po sana. kase pu hindikme kasal ng asawa ko and mayisang anak kame, puede po b na parehas namen siang dependent sa phil health namen..?? and peude din po bang gamitin ng sabay yun if ever.. maraming salamt po and god bless..

    • Nors says:

      Hi ysel, yes, your child can be your dependent and that of your husband, because you are written as mother and father in the birth certificate, even if you’re not yet married. But your child can only use one coverage one at a time, not both. And the child’s benefits are not multiplied by 2. The child will enjoy only one set of coverage at a time.

  12. Angela says:

    Good evening Admin Nors,

    I would like to inquire regarding my philhealth (OFW), i don’t know my card number and im not sure if i declared my father as one of my dependent.

    What should i do and how can i check if my father was declared or not.

    Thank you.

    • Nors says:

      Hi Angela, I suggest you register online at and wait for your no. to be emailed to you. As long as your father is 60 years old or older, he can use your Philhealth, even if he was not yet registered as your dependent — he just needs to show your birth certificate (orig and xerox), proof of his age, your MDR and Philhealth payment receipt or receipt of OEC with Philhealth payment (orig and xerox)

  13. Sheryl says:

    Good day!

    My name is sheryl, i just want to ask regarding my nephew’s philheath, he’s 3 yrs old. A year a ago we decided to take the responsibility of my sister because of personal reason but to make it short we decided to registered him in philhealth, under individually paying member. His almost a one year member of philhealth. Is iit possible that we can transfer his philheath under his mother’s name? his mother is not a philhealth member. Thank you!

    • Nors says:

      Hi Sheryl, I think you cannot transfer. What you can do is help your sister register as Philhealth member and then register your nephew as your sister’s dependent (bring birth certificate, xerox and orig. Your sister also brings her ID or birth or baptismal certificate). Philhealth might ask your sister to write a letter canceling her child’s membership, so the child can become her dependent.
      Why this is so? Because one cannot be a member and at the same time a dependent.

  14. perlyn says:

    Good day. My husband is an OFW and he would like to declare as one of his dependents but we are not legally married or kasal. Ok lang po b yun? Or pwede niya po ilagay single pero ako ang dependent niya.Thanks

    • Nors says:

      Hi perlyn, sorry, but Philhealth requires a marriage certificate before you can be registered as your husband’s dependent. Spouse, children under 21 or parents 60 years old or older are the only ones qualified as dependents. Your option is to register as a voluntary Philhealth member. Just go to Philhealth with your ID and 450 pesos as payment for 1 quarter.

  15. kat says:

    hello good day..i would like to ask if there’s such a thing as age limit to apply as a philhealth member?

    • Nors says:

      Hi kat, there’s no age limit for Philhealth membership. Young children and senior citizens can be members if they are not dependents of members.

  16. Sesyl says:

    Hi this is sesyl. My husband is ofw.. How can he declare us dependent ng baby namin.. I was working before but now unemployed since sept2012. Can i still claim my philhealth benefit? I just undergone d&c this month. Thanks po.

    • Nors says:

      Hi Sesyl, yes, you can claim if you can file your claim within 60 days from discharge, and if you were treated in an accredited hospital by an accredited doctor. Ask your husband to email an authorization letter authorizing you to update his Philhealth member records and to sign the claim forms in his behalf, plus copies of his IDs and OEC with Philhealth payment. You write a letter to Philhealth (can be handwritten) asking to cancel your membership as you are already unemployed and to be registered as dependent of your husband. Bring your marriage certificate and birth certificate, xerox and orig (so your baby can also be registed as his dependent). Bring your IDs.

  17. juliet butalid says:

    good day poh ma’am. ask ko poh sana, my husband is ofw, my eldest daughter is 19 years old now and dependent sya ng husband ko. but shes fragnant now unfortunately becoming sigle mom. covered p poh ba sya ng philhealth ng husband ko, pno poh macocovered ng philhealth ung magiging baby ng eldest nmin. dapat poh bang mgpa memeber ng anak ko sa philhealth pra ma maign dependent nya ung baby nya. thank’am for the oppurtunity to ask question

    • Nors says:

      Hi juliet, yes, your daughter should be a member so her child can be covered. But if there’s no more time to accumulate 9 months of payment before month of delivery, it’s better that she does not yet become a member so she can use her father’s Philhealth. One cannot be a member and at the same time a dependent.
      She can register as member the day after discharge so her baby is covered. Unfortunately, in this case, she cannot avail of the newborn package, which is up to 1750. But her prenatal and maternity is covered by her father’s Philhealth. Keep her prenatal ORs (at least totaling 1,500 pesos) and submit together with the claim forms.
      However, if delivery month is still far away, you can inquire at Philhealth their Individually Paying Contract program. Ask if your daughter gets covered if she registers under this IPC program.

  18. cha says:

    Good day po matanong q lang po sana ilang payments po ba tayo magbayad ng philhealth pra magamit natin ito? Especially po s ofw member thanks po.. Godbless all..

  19. Les says:

    Good day po. Ask ko lang po kung paano magpa-update ng MDR kc po nung May 2010 individually paying lang po ako pero employed na po ako ngaun since 2011. Idedeclare ko po sana ang tatay ko as dependent kaso po wala syang birth certificate or baptismal.

    • Nors says:

      Hi Les, is your father 60 years old or older? You present your birth certificate and your father’s senior citizen ID (ask your barangay if he does not yet have).

      • tess says:


        • Nors says:

          Hi tess, kung hindi pa siya nasulat sa MDR mo, you need to present your birth cert para merong proof na father mo nga siya. Yong senior citizen ID ay proof na at least 60 years old siya.

  20. roxanne says:

    good day!

    pareho po kami ng asawa ko meron philhealth.. gusto nmin ilagay ung anak nmin dependent sa philhealth..pero sa asawa ko lng ndeclare ..bkit skin d po ba pwedi dependent ko aking anak..

    • Nors says:

      Hi roxanne, yes, your child can also be your dependent. In case your husband cannot process his papers, you can use your Philhealth for your child. This means only one of your memberships can be used at a time, and your child can only use one set of benefits at a time.

  21. Shee says:

    In declaring dependents,., can I used the birth certificate issued by the local civil registrar? Or I still need to get nso?

    • Nors says:

      Hi Shee, I think you can use that certificate issued by the local civil registrar. The registration form does not say it should be from NSO.

  22. hazel says:

    what if kung below 60 years old but incapable to work na ang parent ko. puede ko ba siya declare as my beneficiary?
    kindly reply

  23. lea says:

    hello! pareho kami member ng philhealth nang husband ko. ang conribution ko monthly is 262.50 at ang sa kanya is 300. ibig sabihin ba nito mas malaki ang ma aavail na benefits ng anak namin kung ang philhealth ng Mr ko ang gagamitin kasi mas malaki ang contribution nya?

    • Nors says:

      Hi lea, benefits are the same for all types of members and dependents, regardless of the premium amount. For example, under Case Rate, asthma coverage is 9k. It’s 9k for someone who pays only 100 per month; it’s also 9k for another who pays 300 a month.

  24. roxanne says:

    hi ms.nors, tnung lang po..ili2pat po saking philhealth.. ung dependent ng aking asawa..anu po kya mga requirments..salamat..

    • Nors says:

      Hi roxanne, if the dependent is your child, bring orig and xerox of birth/baptismal certificate. Bring your IDs.

  25. ricardo londres says:

    good day po ask ko po kung mag avail plng po ako ng philhealth card pde ko na po b gamitin agad sa biological kong father? kasi nsa ospital po siya ngaun at ang laki ng gastos namin gano po katagal ung processing? ano po b ang pinakamabilis para magamit ko po agad? salamat po

    • Nors says:

      Hi ricardo, is your father already 60 years old or older? If you’re starting as a member only now, sorry, you cannot use Philhealth immediately. Is he still in the hospital? You can ask the hospital’s collection department if you can ask help from PCSO.

  26. ricardo londres says:

    bakit po wala ung post ko

  27. ruby says:

    Hello po..ask lng po ako if my wife can continue her voluntary contribution as single (married na for a year and she does not yet want to change her status for marital problem namin)..pwede po ba to? thanks po

    • Nors says:

      Hi ruby, I think she can continue using her single name for a while (But I will check if there’s a law that prohibits not using married name) and as long as she writes Married in claim forms that asks for Civil Status and that she writes the name of her spouse if it’s asked in the form (to avoid falsification charge). I’ll add to this later.

  28. Nathan says:

    Hi Good day!, I would like to know if pwede kong idaclare na dependent ang dad ko.I’m single and my dad is 58 years old (I don’t know kung meron syang philhealth na). Currently nasa hospital po sya and i want to avail the benefits of philhealth memeber.

    Thank you,

  29. ganda says:

    hello po,
    18 y/o po ung panganay ko at kasalukuyang buntis sorry to say dalagang ina po,covered po ba sya maternity since isa po xa sa mga benificiaries ko.please let me know para alam ko po gagawin ko salamat po

    • Nors says:

      Hi ganda, yes, if you’re updated with your Philhealth payments, your daughter can be covered. Children are covered if they’re younger than 21, unmarried and unemployed.

  30. love says:

    Gud day!
    i want to ask po mam if i can pay advance payment for 5 yrs in philhealth…coz im going abroad then i dont know maybe i cant pay my philhealth as soon as i get there…pls. need help.thank u much

    • Nors says:

      Hi love, there’s a new program called Individual Policy Contract (IPC) under which you can pay in advance of up to 3 years. You can ask this at Philhealth. And maybe you can stretch this up to 5 years. Just ask them.

  31. raine says:

    Hi. Tanong ko lang po kung ang benefits ng dependents at ng primary philhealth member parehas lang po ba? Or mas mababa makukuha ng mga dependents?

    • Nors says:

      Hi raine, dependents and members get the same benefits. Yes, even if you’re married with children (and of course, they’re your Philhealth dependents), you can also include your parents as dependents as long as they’re already 60 years old or older.

  32. raine says:

    Pwede bang maging dependent padin ang parents kahit may asawa at anak na na dependent din? :)

  33. joyce says:

    Hi! Im a self-employed payer of philheath. I live here in Dubai for 7 years under husbands visa. Continiously paying my premiums through my sister who is in the Philippines. Recently I knew that my parents who are senior citizens and not member of philheath are not my dependents. so I asked my sister to update my dependents. I sent her authorization letter, Ids, Visa, passport copy. She also brought my birthcertificate as well her one and my parents. But unfortunately, they did not agree in philheath. They told that I need to come personally to update it. Im miles away to update it. what should I do? thanks…

    • Nors says:

      Hi joyce, I’m puzzled why Philhealth refused when that’s exactly their instruction for OFWs. There’s a circular to that effect. Either the Philhealth employee met by your sister was new or not informed, or the employee thought you’re here in the Philippines because your status is self-employed. I’m frustrated that they don’t know what they’re doing, unless there’s a new circular reversing the 2011 circular, but I haven’t seen one.
      She can go to another Philhealth branch. What she needs to do is fill up a member registration form, or you download one, fill it up and scan it. Your sister also needs to bring her own IDs. In the authorization letter, write your sister’s full name, your relationship, and her home address. Tell them you’re living abroad as a spouse of a Dubai visa holder and you cannot go to Philhealth to personally update your records. I have emailed you the form and the circular.

  34. carl-an says:

    Good day! pwede bang kumuha ng MDR online? or kung meron bang documents na dadalhin in case magpapakuha ako sa kapatid ko ng MDR sa philhealth office?

    • Nors says:

      Hi carl-an, Philhealth does not yet have that facility. Give your sibling an authorization letter with your name and Philhealth no., your ID and his/her ID, and your Philheath receipt (they might ask).

  35. Roland says:

    Hi! Magandang araw po. Ask ko lang kung pwede ko pa ba ma-update yung philhealth ko? kasi as far as i remember, year 2009 pa yung last contribution ko when i was working in my previous employer. Yung mga sumunod po kasi na employer ko they didn’t pay my contributions. As of now, Self-employed po ako. Ano po ba need kong gawin para magamit mga benefits ko as philhealth member? Do i have to pay for those years na hindi ako nakapag contribute or I can just pay 9 months advanced mula nitong january 2013 para maging eligible sa benefits? Thank you.

    • Nors says:

      Hi Roland, sorry you cannot pay for past quarters. This April, you can no longer pay for Jan to Mar. What you can pay is for April and the next months. For individual payors in maternity and surgery cases, payments for 9 of the 12 months before hospitalization are required. If you want later on to pay in advance, check from time to time if Philhealth has reactivated its new program called Individual Policy Contract (IPC). Under IPC, payments for 3 of the 6 months prior to hospitalization are enough.

  36. Scarlet Koh says:

    Hi, I’m Scarlet…I went to PhilHealth office for voluntary membership they said I’m going to pay 450, hmmm I want to ask why 450, I thought its only 150, 450 its quite big for me because I don’t have job… If I will not do the voluntary still I’m going to pay 450?

    • Nors says:

      Hi Scarlet, 450 is for 3 months — the minimum payment when you register. After registration, you can pay 150 per month every month at Bayad Center or SM Business Center, or through your phone.

  37. mitch says:

    gud day sir my brother is single and his only depentdent is our mother but shes not yet 60 years old, can she avail the philheath benefits of my brother?because next month she need to undergo for an operation

    • Nors says:

      Hi mitch, sad to say, but your mother can become a dependent only at age 60 or older. It’s regardless whether your brother is single or married. I hope you can find a hospital where the costs are cheaper.

  38. Brendal says:

    Hi po. Employed po ako and naospital po yung tatay ko 69 yo pero wala po sha philhealth. Diko pa po sha nadeclare as dependent ko. Updated nmn po yung contribitions ko sa philhealth dhl hospital nmn po nagbabayad deducted sa sahod ko. Ask ko lang po if pwede ko po ba magamit sa tatay ko yung philhealth ko kahit diko pa sha nadeclare as my dependent? Makakapagpasa n po ako nung mga req. Like senior, birth cert… im just wondering kasi po kung na update na ng employer ko status ko sa philhealth since mag 1yr na dn po ako kasal. Problem is, pabo po yung mdr ko san ko kunin? Pre emplyment requirement po yun philhealth membership, yung mdr po kaya na pinasa ko nung una yun na dn po kaya yung mdr ko hanggang ngayon? Since yung mdr po na nasakin e yung single at individually paying ako dati, kylngan ko po ba humingi ng bago mdr para malakad ko yung sa pagdedeclare ko ng tatay ko bilang dependent k0 po? Or pwede na po yung pinakuna kong mdr? Tnx po

    • Nors says:

      Hi Brendal, sorry, this answer might be late already, but I hope you have asked Philhealth already. You can update your Philhealth records to include your father as dependent so that you will be able to get an updated MDR. Bring your birth cert and your father’s senior citizen ID. Your father can be your dependent regardless of whether you are married or single since he’s already 69. File your claim within 60 days after discharge. Hope you got answers from others already.

  39. Michelle Mike Manoy says:

    Good day Philhealth,
    I was planning to apply my mother in Philhealth, since she is not qualified as my dependent cause she’s not yet Senior. My problem is can she use my father’s lastname even though they’re not yet married?because in her 2 ID’s(NBI CLEARANCE AND VOTER’S ID), she already uses my father’s lastname,but as i’ve already mentioned they do not have a marriage contract. Please tell me whats the best thing to do before i go to the Philhealth ofc.thank you.

    • Nors says:

      Hi Michelle, yes, the more practical thing to do is use her name — the same as what it’s written in her voter’s ID, using your fathers’ surname. It takes a long time to get another voter’s ID. Anyway, later on, when they get a marriage certificate or get other valid IDs, you can change her Philhealth records using the certificate. The important thing now is that her MDR and her valid IDs show the same name and spelling when you present them to the hospital or to Philhealth.

  40. chloe says:

    good day! mam/sir my husband is an ofw when he declares his dependents in philhealth he includes my parents which means in-laws father is now admitted in hospital..question. will can be my father avail this philhealth benefits?thanks and God bless

    • Nors says:

      Hi chloe, sorry, parents-in-law cannot be Philhealth dependents. Your husband can have his own parents aged 60 or above as his dependents, but not your parents. Ask others too

    Good evening po! Naka-confine po kasi yung father ko ngayon sa ospital. 59 years old siya. Tanong ko lang po kung pwede ko po maging dependent yung tatay ko sa philhealth since mag-60 years old naman siya sa August this year.

    • Nors says:

      Hi Sarah, sorry but your father should be at least 60 years old to be qualified as your dependent. They will ask for your father’s birth certificate or senior citizen ID.

  42. joannah says:

    Hello Admin,

    I’m 23 years old, lumaki aq sa lolo at lola ko, since birth nasa kanila na aq. Is it possible na sila maging dependants ko? Since sila naman nagpalaki saken, both of may parents are alive but never ko sila nakasama. Pwede ba ireconsider yung case ko?

    • Nors says:

      Hi joannah, it’s great that you recognize what your grandparents have done for you. I’m touched that you obviously love them. But it’s sad that you cannot register them as your dependents, unless you were legally adopted by them. It’s because Philhealth will ask for your birth certificate to check if they are your parents. Grandparents cannot be dependents. What you can do is to register your lolo and pay for his premiums, and then register your lola as dependent of your lolo. If your parent (child of your grandparents) is a Philhealth member, then your grandparents can be his or her dependents (only one membership but will include more people — spouse and parents and minor children).

  43. MANUEL26 says:

    Good day! I just wanna ask if i can update my philhealth and add my mother as a beneficiary because im paying her philhealth monthly and at the same time im paying mine too as voluntary.her philhealth contribution is active.i just only knew lately that i can add my mother as a beneficiary since she is already 61 years old.shes not a sss pensioner.i just want to add her as a beneficiary if possible for me not to burden our monthly contributions cause it cost me twice of paying it.and what documents will im going to bring for updating my philhealth status? hope to hear from you.thank you very much.Have a great day!

    • Nors says:

      Hi Manuel, just go to any Philhealth branch and fill up the Member Registration form, check FOR UPDATING and submit together with a xerox of your birth certificate (bring orig copy and your valid IDs). It’s good you came to know she can be your beneficiary. Have a great day too!

  44. jane says:

    hi. i just turned 21 last oct. and im gonna give birth po this may.tanong kolg po if im still covered by my mothers philhealth kasi unemployed at not marrd dn po ako.


  45. mitty says:

    Hi, ask lang po. I just updated my Philhealth at sa PMRF form 3.Membership Category naicheck ko ang Profesional under Self-employed sa 3.5 Individually Paying member. Nakapagbayad na po ako ng P450 for 2nd quarter. Dapat pala sa Non-professional ako nabelong. Any advice anong dapat ko gawin? Salamat.

    • Nors says:

      Hi mitty, it’s okay as long as your monthly income is not higher than 25k. Did you check “25k and below”? What profession did you write? You can update your PMRF again next quarter if you like and then check Non-Professional and then “25k and below”

  46. eman says:

    Good morning…
    Ask ko lang po sana kung pwedeng magamit ng kapatid ko ang philhealth ko…ulila na kami sa father, my mom is not working at ako lang ang nagwowork sa family…

    • Nors says:

      Hi eman, sorry but your sister cannot be your dependent. Is your sister under 21 years of age? Is your mother younger than 60 years old? If yes, you can enroll your mother in Philhealth so she can register your sister as her dependent. It not, you can enroll each of them in Philhealth. Later on, you can enroll your mother as your dependent when she turns 60 years old, whether you’re single or married. If your sis needs medical attention now, I hope you can find a government hospital or a cheaper hospital near your residence.

  47. jane says:

    hi!i want to ask if my father had already used my philhealth,is it possible that my husband or children can also use it if they get sick with the same year?

    • Nors says:

      Hi jane, yes, your children and husband can use your Philhealth even if you already used it for your father.
      The only limitations are these: 45 days per year are allocated to you, and another 45 days per year are allocated to all your dependents (they share these 45 days). In case the same patient is hospitalized for the same illness within 90 days, the 2nd hospitalization is no longer covered, except for the room and board. If the benefit for that certain illness is not all consumed in the first hospitalization, the rest can be used in the 2nd hospitalization.

  48. rosemarie t.gale says:

    dear maam tanong ko lang po kung pwede ang kapatid ko na lang ang magbayad ng philhealth ko sa pinas para ma updated ang payment ko,at tanong ko lang kapag ma update ba yong payment pwede na po bang magamit sa pag hospital ng nanay ko.thank u hope u reply soon..

    • Nors says:

      Hi rosemarie, yes, your mother can use your Philhealth immediately if you pay as OFW. Send your sibling a copy of your OEC or job contract or work visa or any proof that you’re OFW so your kapatid can pay for you as OFW. Pay for 6 months or 1 year so your validity dates on the Philhealth contribution payment receipt will cover the date of your mother’s hospitalization.

  49. lorence austria says:

    Magandang araw po,
    mag 9yrs na po kami ng asawa ko.may isa po kaming anak at ngaun po buntis po ulit aq after 7yrs.unfortunately wala po kmi legal marriage crtfcte kundi un waiver nung 17 plng po aq nang magpirmahan.may narinig po ako na kht d kasal e pde na mging covered k ng knakasama mo if 6yrs above n nagsasama.totoo po b ito?anu po dapat ko gwin.

    • Nors says:

      Hi lorence, sorry but Philhealth requires you to present your marriage certificate before you can be registered as a dependent of your husband. Hindi ba puedeng magpakasal kayo sa judge o sa city hall para makakuha ng marriage certificate?

  50. Elle says:

    Hi, May mom was confined at the hospital this May 2-10, 2013, covered as dependent by my sister’s philhealth…If ma confine sya ulit before 90 days, pede ko ba sya i cover as my dependent under my philhealth naman this time for philhealth coverage? and what if same illness? ma cover pa rin ba sya?

    • Nors says:

      Hi Elle, sorry but your mother will no longer be covered if she is hospitalized for the same illness within 90 days, even if another member will cover for her. If the illness is not under Case Rate, what she can claim are the rest of her 45-day allowance for room and board coverage and other unspent coverage for 1 set of benefits. Please ask others too; I might have missed some things.

  51. nelyn says:

    ask ko lang po kung pwede ko pong magamit yung philhealth ng boyfiend ko sa panganganak ko this coming june 2013 khit hindi pa po kmi kasal?? thank you po

    • Nors says:

      Hi nelyn, sorry you cannot use your boyfriend’s Philhealth — you need to present a marriage certificate to be able to be registered as your partner’s dependent.

  52. mary grace niebres says:

    Ask ko lang po kung pa ano ma u update ng asawa ko yung philhealth nya.. 8 months n po kaming kasal..seaferer po siya athindi nya na update yong s benificiary at civil status nya.. Sabi nya kung pwde ko po dw asikasuhin.. Manganganak n po kasi aq s july.. Wala po siya dito s pilipinas eh.. Wala din po siya dito bago ako manganak.. Qualified din po ba aq? Un employed din po 23 yrs old..and di pa naman ako nag memember s philhealth.. Yun lang po salamat..

    • Nors says:

      Hi mary grace, yes, you can qualify as long as your husband’s agency/company is paying his Philhealth. You go to Philhealth to update his member data record and write yourself as dependent on the form; bring your marriage certificate (orig and xerox), your ID, copy of his ID and his authorization letter for you to update his member registration record. Later on, get a signed claim form 1 and certification of premium payments from his agency (present to hospital, including ORs of prenatal care worth at least 1500 so you can get your prenatal refund if you deliver normally)

  53. anne azaola says:

    My husband is an ofw.i already have mdr which has my name on it as his due date is this month.i already have xerox copy of my husbands vissa/passport and i still need to pass it on philhealth ofiz or i will just pass it on the hosp upon dischrg?

    • Nors says:

      Hi anne, does your husband’s MDR indicate he’s OFW? His MDR, OEC and passport/visa should be enough (xerox and orig). Bring your marriage certificate in case they ask (orig and xerox) and your ID as well.

  54. Agnes says:

    Hi admin, im currently jobless right now.. i wasnt able to pay my contri to philhelt from jan2013 until this month. my question is pde pba byaran yung month from jan to may contri ko for me to use my philhelt this october kxe i will gave birth to my second child? pls reply. this will be a great help. thankyou..

    • Nors says:

      Hi Agnes, sori pero what I know is that they will no longer accept payments for the first quarter. You can pay April to Sep, but this will count only 6 months (ang requirement is payment of 9 of the 12 months BEFORE month of delivery). Please ask others too. You can also ask Philhealth if they’re again offering Individual Policy Contract so you can avail (itinigil nila ito in March 2013).

  55. maria christina atienza says:

    husband ko po foreigner m active philhealth member pag po nagkasakit sya dito sa pinas pwede ba nya magamit philhealth ko?thank you po..

    • Nors says:

      Hi maria, yes, your husband is eligible as long as you’re updated with your payments. You can update your MDR at Philhealth and register him as your dependent by presenting your marriage certificate (orig and xerox).

  56. Honey says:

    Hello po.
    I would like to ask if can my mother can still avail of my father’s philhealth even if he already turned 60 last May 16, 2013? Schedule for operation kasi sya.Hope for your immediate reply.

    Thank you

    • Nors says:

      Hi Honey, yes, your mother is still your father’s dependent even if your father turned 60, as long as he continues to pay his Philhealth, or he is eligible for Free Lifetime membership (meron siyang 120 contributions?). But if your father stops paying, and is not a lifetime member, and he becomes your dependent, hindi nia puedeng dependent din ang mother mo, kasi amg father mo mismo ay dependent.
      If your mother is not yet 60, dapat patuloy na magmember ang father mo para dependent nia ang mother mo.

  57. mike gomez says:

    gud pm po tanung ko lng po pwede po ba magamit ng asawa ko ung philhealth ko bagong kasal lng po kmi bale manganganak sya this coming november 2013

    • Nors says:

      Hi Mike, yes, puede. Bring your marriage certificate (orig and xerox) with your ID and Philhealth no. to Philhealth and update your MDR and register your wife as your dependent.

  58. kk says:

    hi po balak ko po mag apply ng philhealth, unemployed po ako 25 years old. voluntary nalang po sana. pwede ko po ba gawing beneficiary ang lolo at lola ko since wala po sa bansa ang parents ko at sa kanila na ako lumaki

    • Nors says:

      Hi kk, sorry your grandparents cannot be your dependents. 60 years old or older na ba sila? Puede silang dependent ng parent mo (na anak ng grandparents mo) kung Philhealth member or kung gusto nilang mag-member. Kahit nasa abroad, puedeng member. Kung hindi naman, ikaw at yong grandfather mo ay mag-member, and then lola mo ang dependent ng lolo mo.

  59. kk says:

    hi sorry i have found the answers na to my previous inquiry. since i cant list my lolo and lola as my beneficiaries po can i apply nalang ng philhealth for my lolo, problem po is they are not married. can he still list my lola as his beneficiary? sad naman if i have to apply for them both. ang lola ko po is senior citizen na. hindi ko parin sya pwede gawin beneficiary? ang lolo ko 57 years old. sana pwede nya gawin beneficiary si lola ko but they are not married. pero sa IDs ng lola ko gamit nya surname ng lolo since way back. wala lang ako mapapakitang marriage certificate po. pls help

    • Nors says:

      Hi kk, sorry pero marriage certificate kasi ang hinahanap ng Philhealth. Taga-Manila ka yata, based on your IP address, puede kang magpunta sa city hall at magtanong kung saan puedeng magpakasal ang lolo at lola mo na libre, para lang makakuha ka ng marriage certificate. Lumapit ka sa congressman ng district mo, magdala ka ng proof kung taga-saan ka; maganda kung meron kang voters ID. Sorry, your lola cannot be your dependent kahit senior citizen na siya. Hope you can resolve your concern. You will be blessed because you’re taking good care of your grandparents. Saludo ako sa yo

  60. xhy milan says:

    hi im xhy gusto ko lang malaman if pwede po gamitin yung philhealth ko im single and ng declared dependent lang ay ang anak ko sa pagkadalaga pwede ba magamit ng mama ko ang philhealth ko?

    • Nors says:

      Hi xhy, yes, your mother can be your dependent kahit meron kang ibang dependent or kahit single ka basta 60 years old or older na ang mama mo. Present your birth certificate and your mother’s birth certificate or senior citizen ID (to prove her age).

  61. rocel says:

    hi po…
    ask ko lang po kung pwede kong mging dependents ang aking kapatid na 15 years old..
    special po sya mental retardation po ang case…
    kung sakali pong pwede ano po ba yung mga kailangan ko i submit na papers?
    im a voluntary payer po

    • Nors says:

      Hi rocel, sorry, your sibling cannot be your dependent kahit meron siyang handicap. Yong father or mother mo, puede niyang dependent ang kapatid mo na ito (bring medical certificate and birth certificate) at dependent niya rin mother or father mo (para isa lang sa kanila ang mag-member).

  62. Avril Joy says:

    I will give birth on august…I am an OFW But I lost my oec receipt the 2nd time I went abroad…Is the payment automatically updated in yout data base?
    Another query my husband and I got married abroad and not yet registered our marriage here..Automatically my baby is my dependent..but is it allowed that my husband will register our baby to be his dependent? Can we benefit it the time I will give birth?

    • Nors says:

      Hi Avril, yes, you can go to Philhealth and ask for your MDR. Ask also for a copy of eligibility for hospital use — tell them you lost your OEC. Yes, your baby is a dependent of your husband. Present birth certificate. For the newborn care package, usually it is your Philhealth that is used instead of your husband’s because at that time, it is more convenient.

  63. dionne says:

    • Nors says:

      Hi dionne, kausapin mo yong local registrar ninyo, sabihin mo you need it for your wife’s Philhealth maternity coverage this July. I’m puzzled why it takes 6 months. Ask help from your congressman or mayor.

  64. jen says:

      Hi jen, ang hospital kasi hinahanap ang marriage certificate, so kausapin nio local registrar ninyo, or yong mayor’s office or konsehal.

  65. mrs. bajon says:

    Hello po.. when u updated my MDR just few days ago, naging Individually paying-Self-employed-Non Professional ang membership category ko from its original Individually Paying Member.. When i updated it kasi, (nagchange status kasi ako at additional independent) nafill-up ko din yung sa category na self employed as Non Professional pero naicheck ko yung income na 25k above.. will it affect my premium kapag nagbayad na ulit ako? last payment i made was in january for period january-june 2013 and i paid P900. thanks

    • Nors says:

      Hi mrs. bajon, that can be considered as just a typo error, since they accepted your payment of 900 for 6 months or 150 per month. You can continue paying 150 per month for the July to Dec period — another 900. When you pay for your July to Dec, you can update your MDR and check the 25k and below.

  66. mrs. bajon says:

    hello po.. just few days ago, i updated my MDR because i changed my civil status and for my additional independent.. but when i compared my old and new MDR, my original membership category as Individually paying member was changed to Individually paying Member-Self-employed-Non Professional.. I remember filling up the category section Self employed and Non Professional and i think I mistakenly checked the income 25k and above.. The last payment I made was in january 2013 for periods of january-june and i paid P900.. So now, I wonder if it will change my monthly premium due to that change in membership category.. thanks.

  67. angelica says:

    hello mam, ask ko lng po pinapatanong ng friend ko kasi buntis sya magagamit ba nya yung philhealth ng magiging asawa nya although pag nanganak sya di pa sila kasal

    • Nors says:

      Hi angelica, sorry hindi pa, kasi she needs to present her marriage certificate to Philhealth for MDR update or to the hospital.

  68. Geraldine says:

    hello po.

    I’m single parent po with 1 kid, I declared my son as my dependent already may years ago. ask ko lang po if I can still declare my father as my additional dependent since he’s 61 y/o na cya this year.

    Hope you can help me po.


    • Nors says:

      Hi Geraldine, yes, you can declare your father as your dependent since he’s already 60 or older. Bring your birth certificate and your father’s senior citizen ID or birth certificate.

  69. jen says:

    Where na po post q?im waitng..

    • Nors says:

      Hi dionne, you need to present your marriage certificate kasi paano malaman ng hospital na married nga kayo. Makiusap kayo sa local registrar nio or mayor’s office nio; ngayon lang merong nag-comment na 6 months ma-release ang marriage certificate — ang tagal naman niyan.

  71. Tin Illana says:

    Can i add my brother who is 2 yrs older than me, unemployed due to schizophrenia as a dependent? Thanks so much

    • Nors says:

      Hi Tin, sorry your sibling cannot be your dependent, no matter that he’s unemployed due to his condition. Register mo na lang and pay for him if you desire so.

  72. Nors says:

    Hi Jen, you need your marriage certificate. Makiusap sa local registrar or sa mayor’s office at sabihing kelangan nio for your Philhealth maternity coverage.

  73. Joel Luna says:

    Good Day po,I’am Joel Luna from marilao bulacan, I just want to ask if posible po ba na pwede pa po ako makapag avaible ng philhealth para sa anak ko.dependent ko ang anak ko kaya last january ako nagresign sa work ko at hindi ko na nahuhulugan yung ito hanggang ngayon dahil wala na akong work pwede ko prin po ba gamitin ang philhealth ko? ano po ang mga kailangan kong gawin? thanks in advance. GOD Bless!

    • Nors says:

      Hi Joel, depende kung kelan ba gagamitin. Kasi pag surgery, dapat nabayaran ang 9 of the 12 months BEFORE month of confinement. Kapag non-surgery, 3 of the 6 months BEFORE month of confinement ang dapat nabayaran.

  74. ruth says:

    good day! id like to know po kung pwede ko pa gamitin phil health number noong employed pako. nag retire napo kse ako 4yrs ago at the age of 39 due to fertility treatment. . gusto ko kse e-activate ulit para gawin ko dependent mommy ko whos now 72yrs.old? ako naman po ay dependent ng husband. gagawin ko lang po ito para sa mmy ko na wala po any health card na after ko mg retire. also, meron po ba kayo ma-recommend na agency or company that offers health card for senior citizen? Appreciate po any comments or suggestions. thank you and sana po marami pa kayo matulungan. God bless po!

    • Nors says:

      Hi ruth, you can register/pay at a Philhealth branch so you can renew your data and register your mommy as dependent. Bring your ID and birth certificate and your mom’s senior citizen ID or birth certificate (to prove age). Parang nag-iba kasi sila ng numbering compared sa years ago; so tingnan mo na lang kung ibahin nila ang number mo. About health card for senior citizens, parang meron akong nakita sa Healthway sa mga malls, pero hindi siya comprehensive.

  75. wilson says:

    sir mag tatanong lng po san ako manganganak po gf ko sa year itatanong ko lng po kung kukuha po b kami ng philhealth now magagamiot po b? un sa panganganak nya next year salamat po !!!

    • Nors says:

      Hi wilson, kulang yata ng 1 month. Payment of 9 of the 12 months BEFORE month of delivery ang kelangan. If you pay July to Feb, 8 months lang — please check my counting.

  76. MBIsidro says:


    My brother is currently under my mother Philhealth as dependent. He already used up the Dialysis Benefits so we want to deactivate my brother as dependent of my mother then switch it as dependent to my Father.
    So he again can use the Dialysis Benefits.
    Is this possible?


    • Nors says:

      Hi MBIsidro, sorry, it’s not possible. Every dependent can use only up to 45 days of coverage per year, kahit pa meron pang ibang puedeng principal member na puede siyang maging dependent. You can ask help from PCSO and NKTI.
      But ask others too about the 45-day allowance and being dependent of more than 1 member.

  77. Delia says:

    Hi, Good morning. Tanong koh lang poh, i’m currently employed. Ask ko lang poh kailangan koh pa din po ba kumuha ng sarili kong philhealth kahit poh beneficiary na ako ng asawa koh?

    • Nors says:

      Hi Delia, because you’re Employed, you’re mandated to be a member. You and your employer have to pay your Philhealth, kahit puede kang maging beneficiary ng husband mo.

  78. elaine says:

    hi po, i am a ofw and gave birth po on july 7 2012,
    i manage to avail the philhealth benefits for my new born baby. then i paid my premium contribution on june 7 2013, ask ko lang po, automatic ba na naka dependent ko na ang baby ko since naka hospital sya today and we are about to get a mdr tomorrow.

    • Nors says:

      Hi elaine, yes, your baby is your dependent. About MDR with your baby registered as your dependent: Bring the birth certificate issued by the hospital (orig and xerox) — I hope Philhealth will recognize it because I assume the birth cert from the local civil registrar is not yet available.

  79. bernadeth says:

    hi admin.
    ask qu lng poh f covered pa aqu ng philhealth ng father qu.21 na poh aqu nd manganganak poh aqu xa december..unemployed poh aqu at unmarried. pd pa poh bang mgamit ang philhealth ng father ko pagkapanganak qu.?pakisagot lng poh.tnx

  80. anjie says:

    Good day po. Ask ko lng po for example di ko pa na-i-add ang anak ko as one of my beneficiary, magagamit nya po b ang philhealth ko in case of emergency?

    • Nors says:

      Hi anjie, yes, just bring his birth certificate. But it’s best if you update your MDR, because many hospitals require your MDR to be updated before they deduct. You can however file for refund if Philhealth was not deducted.

  81. joyce says:

    Hello and Goodevening, I am Joyce and my question is..Is a 15-year-old dependent daughter covered for maternity care? I am the member and I am the mother of my 15 years old daughter.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Joyce de Joya

    • Nors says:

      Hi joyce, yes, your daughter is covered as your dependent. Ang rule: younger than 21, unmarried and unemployed. If you’re OFW, the validity dates in your premium receipt should cover your daughter’s child delivery date. Also, to be covered by Philhealth, she should deliver in a hospital, not maternity clinic, since she’s younger than 19.

  82. Juliet says:

    Hi! Ask ko lng po ung asawa ko kc ngaun is 55 yrs old at ung mga anak ko dependent nya cla ay 5 and 2 yrs old only. At cla din po ay my mga kaptid s ama n ms older s knila. Halimbawa po pgdting ng 60 yrs old ng father ny at hndi n mgbbyad ng philhealth dhil pwd n syang maging dependent ng mga anak ny s una n ms matanda s mga anak ko which is 5 and 2 yrs old lng ngaun, d hndi n cla dependent ng father nla hnd n nila pwd gamitin ung philhealth ng father nila?pls help me and thank you po!

    • Nors says:

      Hi Juliet, kung pagdating ng age 60 ay makaipon ng 10 years of Philhealth contributions ang husband mo, pati na yong dating Medicare noon, puede siyang maging free Lifetime member, at puede pa rin niyang dependent ang younger children ninyo. Mag-apply lang siya ng Lifetime membership card at age 60 pag meron nang 120 contributions.

  83. Big Boy says:

    if a philhealth member dies, can his/her spouse and beneficiaries still avail of philhealth after member’s death? no. 2 question – can someone claim the benefits even though they have not been listed as beneficiaries on the application form?

    • Nors says:

      Hi Big Boy, 1. yes, puede pa, pero hanggang doon lang sa nabayarang premiums before death
      2. Yes, basta merong maipakitang proof of relation (marriage or birth certificate). Pero maraming hospitals ang hindi nagde-deduct kapag hindi updated ang MDR; but you can file for refund sa Philhealth.

      • Big Boy says:

        can illegitimate children who present themselves only after death of an sss member lay claim on the dead members benefits even though they are not listed on the members records? i understand you said that they have to show proof like birth certificate but can this be contested through a dna exam to solidify proof of relationship to the dead member as the illegitimate children was never recognized or mentioned by the member when he/she was alive?

        please clarify regarding your comments on the hospital not deducting if the mdr (?) is not updated. i do not understand what was meant by this part. thanks

    Good day! My husband wants to add me as his dependent but it didnt appear because I am still employed with my previous employer as per Philhealth staff for I only asked someone to have my husbands data updated. What should I do? thanks in advance!

    • Nors says:

      Hi April, write a letter to Philhealth requesting them to cancel your membership because you’re already unemployed and ask them to register you as your husband’s dependent. Your husband brings this letter (or authorize someone), with your ID, his ID and your marriage cert

      Ji jam, verify your Philhealth no. sa Philhealth and then pay 150 pesos per month. Bring your ID. Minimum payment sa Philhealth ay 450, for 3 months. Later on, sa Bayad Center, puede nang monthly.

  89. Jana says:

      Hi Jana, sorry, there’s no online verification. You can verify at Philhealth, kahit sa Philhealth desks sa certain SM or Robinson malls (not all branches). Kahit hindi nakasulat na dependent basta merong marriage certificate, puede siyang dependent.

  90. Jasmin Areglado says:

    I want to ask if my daughter can use my philhealth in her maternity. This coming sept 11 she’ s turn 20 and they plan to get married this sept 28, 2013 and she give birth on nov . 2013 magagamit pa ba nya philhealth ko after get married.


    • Nors says:

      Hi Jasmin, sori, your daughter will not qualify as your dependent because she will be a married woman by Nov 2013. Pero puedeng merong continuity of coverage. You can ask Philhealth if your dependent daughter can start being a member this Sep and pay for Sep and Oct, so she can be covered in November — the 9 monthly payments required will be a combination of 7 months as dependent and 2 months as individual payor.
      Merong similar case na puede — yong manganganak just a month after turning 21 years old. Ang ginawa is to pay 1 month para individual payor siya, and then combined sa months while she was dependent — merong continuity of coverage. So pakitanong na lang sa Philhealth yong case ng daughter mo.

  91. Jasmin says:

    Hi po, i want to ask kung pwede bang gamitin ng baby ng anak ko yung philhealth ng father ng baby sa newborn screening kahit di pa sila kasal. Thanks

  92. daisy says:

    Good day poh…ofw po aq d2 sa riyadh. Gs2 q po sana malaman kung anu po ung philhealth number as ofw..kababalik ko lng ngaun baby is sick at gsto sana na ipagamit ung philhealth q… tinatanong daw kz hospital ung membership # q ng philhealth..pnu ko malalaman… pls help me

    • Nors says:

      Hi daisy, scan your ID and your OEC (or latest premium payment receipt) and email your authorization letter authorizing your representative to verify your Philhealth number and to process all your Philhealth papers. Your rep will inquire at any Philhealth office

  93. Jasmin says:

    Hi po, i want to ask kung pwede bang gamitin ng baby ng anak ko yung philhealth ng father ng baby sa newborn screening kahit di pa sila kasal. Thanks

  94. cristina lodangco says:

    gud p.m poh..kasalukuyan po akong empleyado..magagamit ko po ba philhealth ko panganganak ko kahit hindi pa ako kasal thanks poh..

    • Nors says:

      Hi Cristina, yes, you can avail, kasi ikaw naman ang member; ke single or married, eligible basta member. Required lang ang marriage cert kapag hindi member ang babae at kelangan nia ang Philhealth ng partner.

  95. shara says:

    gud pm po ask ko lang po kasi yung anak ko po na ospital pwede ko po bang gamitin ang philphealth ng asawa ko hindi po kami kasal ang tanong ko po nasa abroad po kasi xa ngayon pano po ang gagawin. ako naman po my philhealth pero di pa nahuhulugan. kaka apply ko pa lang po
    nid your reply asap po salamat

    • Nors says:

      Hi shara, ang father or mother ay dependent niya ang anak niya, kahit hindi married sa ina o ama, basta merong birth cert at nakasulat doon na mother siya or father siya. Kung OFW at merong OEC at ang Philhealth dates na nakalagay doon ay covered ang Oct 4 or confinement dates, maco-cover siya. Sabihin sa hospital na gagamitin nio ang Philhealth. Have your copy of OEC (or Philhealth premium receipt) and authorization letter authorizing your partner to process all needed Philhealth docs.

  96. shaa says:

    hi ask ko lang pwede ba magamit ng anak ko yung philphealth ko kahit nandito ako sa abroad. kaso hindi kami kasal ng asawa ko anung pwedeng gawin hope for reply asap nasa hospital kasi sila now salamat

  97. NEM says:

    Hi, I am a Philhealth memeber. My Philhealth Id bears my married name. We have an ongoing annulment case. I am pregnant by my new partner and is due to deliver next year. Can I still use my philhealth benefits even if I use my maiden name in the hospital and my philhealth records show my married name?

    • Nors says:

      Hi NEM, I think you should use your married name because that’s your name with Philhealth and your annulment has not been granted yet. Once a Pinoy woman takes her husband’s surname, it takes a court order to change her surname in legal documents. The hospital will question the discrepancy in surname.

  98. Hey Nors,

    I’d like to know why can’t my sibling be added as m dependents for PhilHealth?

    I’m really curious.

    Super thanks! :)

    • Nors says:

      Hi Carl, it’s a business decision. If our siblings can be our dependents, then there will be much less number of members who are paying Philhealth.

  99. Mariane Roxas says:

    ung father ko po, 50 years old pa lang. Nawalan po siya ng trabaho noong 2006 kaya po na stop ung pagbabayad nya sa philhealth. Mahigit 20 years po siya nagbayad ng philhealth. wala pa rin po bang benefits sa philhealth ung mga nag avail ng early retirement?

    • Nors says:

      Hi Mariane, sad to say, sa age 60 pa niya ma-enjoy ang lifetime-free membership niya. I-member mo na lang siya at maging dependent niya ang mother mo.

  100. Jason says:


    Private employed ako, PH member and may sakit si papa at na hospital, meron syang philhealth kaso andg problem is hnd na sya nakapagbayad almost 2 years, pwede ko kayang gamitin yung philhealth ko na atleast mabawasan yung bayarin sa hospital?

    Thank you

    • Nors says:

      Hi Jason, puede mo siyang dependent kung 60 years old na siya or older. If younger than 60, sori hindi mo pa siya puedeng dependent. Ask others too

  101. Cecile says:

    Magandang Araw!
    Ask ko lang po kasi yung husband ko ay member na ng philhealth at ako naman ay since 1996 pa but na hinto ang pag contribution ko nun 2004. nun 2012 nagka phil health ang asawa as required kasi sa trabaho nya. at ako nman ay nag ka work din. mag- apply sana ako ulit ng phil health but sbi sa HR nmin ay hindi na dw dahil phil health member na mr. ko. tama po ba?

    • Nors says:

      Hi Cecile, if you don’t need your Philhealth membership for the sake of your parents, then your HR’s decision can also mean savings for you — no Philhealth deductions from your pay. It also means savings for them, since they don’t need to pay their share for you. It’s against Philhealth’s rules, but it’s their problem, as long as you don’t need it for your parents. Your husband must update his MDR with your marriage cert and register you as his dependent.

  102. Susana says:

    Good morning po.Hindi po ako nakapagbayad ng contibution ko mula jan to oct2013, self employed po ako may asawa at tatlong anak. Lahat po sila listed as my beneficiaries except my parents. Problema ko po nakaconfine po mother ko ngayon she is 76 yrs old. Pwede ko po ba gamitin philhealth ko sa kanya? Salamat po.

    • Nors says:

      Hi Susana, sorry late na late ang reply ko. Yes, puede mo pa ring beneficiary ang mother mo. Mag-register ka uli as Informal Sector and then pay for 1 year in advance. Pero before paying, ask Philhealth kung puedeng magamit agad as Informal Sector member, to be sure.

  103. danica says:

    hi Admin,

    good day! tanong ko lang po, what if parents younger 60 years old pero may disability, pwede ba siya maging dependent?

  104. anil says:

    Hi, tatanung ko lang po kasi kaka-22 ko lang last september 2013. Under po ako sa dependent nang dadi ko. Nkapag hulog ako nang sarili kong philhealth july 2013. Pwede po ba magamit ung philhealth ni dadi at the same time ung sakin??
    Naconfine ako september 30, 2013

  105. Myrna says:

    Good day!

    ask ko lang po sana kung paano po kung nd NSO orig copy yung birth certificate ng parents ko kasi mga pre war po sila wala po sila sa NSO pero merun silang birth certificate from our municipality at sa munisipyo (baptismal)yata may sealed po pwede ba yun kasi more than 60 na sila ano po gagawin thnks for your reply!

  106. Becky says:

    Hi Admin.

    I’d like to ask how I can declare my daughter as my dependent. I just gave birth and would like her to be covered by PhilHealth. Thanks! :)

    • Nors says:

      Hi Becky, update your Philhealth record by presenting your ID and your baby’s birth certificate. Kapag hindi pa na-update at kelangan nang gamitin ang Philhealth sa ospital, you can present your baby’s certificate (orig and xerox)

  107. Malou says:

    Ano po ang kelangan kapag hindi tumutugma ang pangalan ng Philhealth member dun sa birth certificate ng kanyang anak?
    May mali po kasi dun sa Mother’s Name ng birth certificate ng bata.

    • Nors says:

      Hi Malou, kapag 1 letter lang ang diperensiya, baka puede nang remedyuhan ang birth certificate sa local civil registrar, pero kapag different name na talaga, kelangan na ng petition sa court. So ang maganda punta ka sa local civil registrar ninyo at tanungin kung anong gawin para mapalitan sa tamang Mother’s name.

  108. Jj says:


    Can my wife avail the benefits agad kung kkaadd ko lng sknya as my beneficiary? Say add ko sya today and today ko din ggmitin kasi nka confine sya..


    • Nors says:

      Hi Jj, yes, basta eligible member ka. Kung hindi pa updated ang Philhealth record mo, puedeng magpresent ng marriage certificate (orig and xerox).

  109. Arianne says:

    Good Pm po,

    My sister is 19 years old, student, unmarried at the same time may baby po..Pwede na po ba sia makapagpamember as individually paying member.Hoping for your response po, thanks. Yanie

    • Nors says:

      Hi Arianne, yes, kahit younger pa, puede nang magmember. Dependent niya ang baby niya.

      • zaldy says:

        good am im zaldy,
        member po ako ng philhealth since 2006 till now paano ko po e2 gagamitin sa anak ko na nasa hospital? 2 year old palang sya, ano po ang first step kung gawin at ano po ang mga requirments at mga papeles para magamit ko e2 at mabawasan ang bill namin sa hospital?

        • Nors says:

          Hi zaldy, bring your ID, updated MDR from Philhealth, certificate of premium payments. If your child’s name is not yet in your MDR, bring his birth certificate (orig and xerox)

  110. allan says:

    hi, na confine po anak ko sa pinas habang nandito ako sa riyadh. Gustong i refund ng asawa ko yung ofw philhealth ko kaso wala akong philhealth id at wala ring copy ng mdr yung asawa ko. Pano ba makakakuha nun? thanks

    • Nors says:

      Hi allan, email your wife an authorization letter to process his Philhealth, a copy of your ID or passport and copy of your OEC (or Philhealth premium payment receipt). Your wife will get your MDR from Philhealth. Dalhin niya marriage cert nio in case Philhealth asks.

  111. kimberly miranda says:

    hello po ask ko lang po sana kung panu magkaroon nang philhealth card yung dadi ko 58 years old palang po sya eh..anu po ba pede naming gawin para makadiscount po kami sa mga gastos nya sa hospital at pagpapacheck up nya nastroke po kasi sya eh.

    • Nors says:

      Hi kimberly, puede nio siyang iregister with Philhealth as Informal Sector member para magamit nio for the next treatments.

  112. marlon c bayta says:

    hi im marlon po, active member po aq ng philhealth’ nsa ospital po ngaun ang kptd q’ pwd po b nya maavail ung benifits q kht nd pa sya nkalista sa dependents q? panu po??

  113. anne says:

    Hi ask ko lang kung kailangan ko pa magbayad ng premium monthly kahit dependent na ako ng husband ko? Pinagbayad kasi ako ng 2,400 good for 1 year dahil kailangan daw at kahit waka na akong work dapat nagbabayad pa din daw ako ng monthly contribution. Thank you.

    • Nors says:

      Hi anne, if you’re unemployed, you should be your husband’s dependent so you can save on premiums. But if you’re employed, you must continue paying your own premiums. Pag tapos na ang nabayaran mong months, ask your husband to update his member data to register you as his dependent, using your marriage cert and your letter asking Philhealth to discontinue your membership and to register you as your husband’s dependent.

  114. JJ says:

    Hi, ask ko lang if my mom is few days (14 days) before turning 60, qualified ba sya maging dependent sa Philhealt kapag nag-claim ako?

  115. aicyl says:

    good day po.

    ask ko lng po kung magagamit ko po ba yung philhealth ko sa panganganak ko.hindi po kasi ako kasal pero gagamitin ko yong surname ng father ng bata..may nakapagsabi po kasi saakin na magagamit ko lng daw po philhealth ko kung mismong surname ko gagamitin ko.tnx po

    • Nors says:

      Hi aicyl, kung ano ang surname mo sa Philhealth, dapat ito ang gamitin mo sa hospital para match ang Philhealth receipt, MDR and hospital record. Yong bata, yon ang puedeng kukuha sa surname ng father niya.

  116. francis says:

    Gud eve.. Active po ako na member ng philhealth. Bale buntis po ngayon ung asawa ko 7 months. Hindi ko pa po xa naide-declare as beneficiaries. Balak ko po sana this week ko na lakarin. Kasal naman po kmi.

    Ask ko lng po kung
    1. Pwede b sa kahit anong branch ng philhealth ko i process?
    2. Pwede n bang magamit ng asawa ko ung philhealth ko?
    3. Magkano po kaya ang naibibigay ng philhealth sa mga ganitong manganganak?

    Salamat po.

    • Nors says:

      Hi francis, yes, you can update your member data at any branch. Bring your ID and marriage cert (orig and xerox). After updating, request for your updated MDR. Yes, your wife can use your Philhealth. Pag normal at pag hospital, 5k ang benefit (3k for hospital and 2k for PF). Pag clinic, 6500. Merong 1750 coverage for newborn, pero depende sa hospital at pedia. Submit 2 sheets of claim form 1; one for maternity, the other for newborn.

  117. Arni says:

    Hi, question lang po. When I filed for my membership about 5 years ago, I have declared my mother as my dependent, but she was 55 years old pa that time. She just turned 60 last Dec. Should I update my dependents list or automatic na sya maiinclude as approved dependent? Thanks in advance!

    • Nors says:

      Hi Arni, i-update mo na lang ang dependent list mo para updated na, although puede na siyang ma-cover as your dependent halimbawa merong immediate need. Bring your birth cert (orig and xerox) and your mom’s senior citizen’s ID or birth cert (to prove age).

  118. everly says:

    ask ko lang kung pwdng gmitin ng step son q ung phlhealt q. patay n kc ang tatay nia. ndi rn kmi ksala ng tatay nia. pero he is in coma. gusto ku sna gmtin phlhealth q sa knia. tnx

    • Nors says:

      Hi everly, sorry hindi mo siya puedeng dependent, kasi ang kelangang document ay birth cert, or court decree of adoption, or marriage cert/birth cert (to prove he’s your stepson). Ask others too

  119. Ramz says:

    Good day!. my GF will be giving birth on September 2013, I am a active Philhealth member and she is not a member of Philhealth. i just wanna ask kung pwede ko ba syang maging dependent or maka avail ng philhealth benefits like ( maternity ) kahit hindi kami kasal?

    • Nors says:

      Hi Ramz, you mean Sep 2014? Hindi mo siya puedeng dependent kasi you need to present marriage cert. You can ask her to register as Individual payor-Informal Sector (she brings ID or birth cert) and pay Feb to Aug 2014, or pay Feb to Apr and then pay May to Aug in May.

  120. Kielle says:

    hi good day admin, ask ko lang po sana kung pwede pang mag-apply ng philhealth yung tita ko na 65 yrs old na single lady? wala po kasi siya philhealth ever since and wala din po siya insurance…
    thanks po…

    • Nors says:

      Hi Kielle, yes, puedeng-puede siyang mag-member. Magdala lang ng ID or birth cert and at least 600 pesos (payment for 3 months) sa nearest Philhealth branch. Puede ring ikaw na ang pumunta, papirmahan mo lang yong registration form at hingan mo ng ID at authorization letter.

  121. mai basa says:

    Hi po. Dependent po ako ng mother ko. I am 19 years old, unemployed and just got married last feb. 18, 2014. Manganganak po ako this first week of march. Pwede ko p din po ba magamit philhealth ng mommy ko?

    • Nors says:

      Hi mai, sori hindi ka na puedeng dependent kasi legally married ka na. What you do is to register with Philhealth as Individual Payor-Informal Sector) and pay for 1 year starting Feb, so you can avail. Bring your ID or birth cert.

  122. maryclaireoto says:

    hi po.gndang hapon.ask ko lng po magkanu po kaya ang maba2was sa bill kpag po dinagdag na dependent ang bagong anak na anak ng member? eh sa asawa nya po mgkanu po kya ?

    • Nors says:

      Hi maryclaireoto, ang Philhealth deduction ay depende sa sakit na ginamot o operasyo na ginawa. Pareho ang coverage amount ke member o dependent. Puedeng magamit ng member ang Philhealth niya kasabay ng dependent niya kung halimbawa sabay na nagkasakit at naospital.

  123. singdy says:

    ask ko lang po if pwede po gmitn ng sabay yung philhealth and seniorctzen discount sa ospital pag naconfine

  124. anne rodriguez says:

    gud eve po, maitanong ko lang po if pwede po bang maging both dependents naming mag-asawa ang mga anak namin? Were both members n d philhealth, iba2 po ang phlhealth number namin? Answer me pls…salamat po.

    • Nors says:

      Hi anne, puede niyong isulat as dependents, pero pag gagamitin na, isang Philhealth lang ang puedeng gamitin, either yong sa iyo o sa husband mo. Hindi puedeng gamiting sabay ang 2 Philhealth para sa isang dependent.

  125. Lady Eves L. Villasan says:

    Hi gud evening, I’m Eves,single and a Philhelth member din po. Ask ko lng po, pwede ko po ba i-cover sa Philhealth yun pamangkin ko n 7 months old. Yun father po niya kasi eh member din pero hindo po nhuhulugan nun current employer nya. The baby is currently confined sa hospital in Nueva Ecija. Eh medyo malaki po un bill. Gusto ko po sna sila tulungan.. Tnx!!

    • Nors says:

      Hi Eves, sorry hindi puedeng dependent ang pamangkin. Ask others too. You can ask help from PCSO; ask the hospital about getting help from PCSO.

  126. miraliza mabunay says:

    Ang husband ko po ang member ng philheath.mayron po akong 4 sana na anak,kaso namatay po yung isa 22days after giving birth.ngayon buntis na naman po ako.makaka-avail po ba ako sa benefits ng philhealth pagkapanganak ko ngayon?

    • Nors says:

      Hi miraliza, pang-5th na ba itong ipinagbubuntis mo ngayon? Up to 4 normal deliveries lang kasi ang Philhealth coverage, kahit namatay po ang isa. Ask others too

  127. justine says:

    May tanong po ako,magagami po ba ang philhealth ko ng girlfriend ko kahit dpa kme kasal kase po buntis na syan.
    Gusto ko lang po malaman kung magagamit niya para sa panganganak niya?

    • Nors says:

      Hi justine, hindi niya magagamit kasi you need to present a marriage certificate to register her as your dependent. Mag-register na lang siya as Individual Payor-Informal Sector and pay 1 quarter, and then for every month before she gives birth. Kung manganganak na siya in less than 3 months, magbayad siya 1 year in advance para magamit agad.

  128. nena says:

    pwede ko pa kaya magamit philhealth ng mommy ko kahit na married na ko pero hndi pa nakadeclare na married ako sa mdr nya? nasa list of beneficiaries nya pa rin ksi ako. thanks

    • Nors says:

      Hi nena, sorry, kung meron ka nang marriage certificate, hindi ka na qualified as dependent. You can pay for 1 year in advance as Individual Payor-Informal Sector para puede mong magamit agad. Kung sa July or later mo pa gagamitin, puedeng bayaran ang Apr to June at magamit mo in July. Ask others too

  129. Grace says:

    Gud afternun po! Ask ko Lang po ang mother in law ko po kc ay 88 years old n .. Pwede pa po ba cyang maging member ng philhealth.. Pls reply po!!

    • Nors says:

      Hi Grace, yes, she can be a member. Pero kung member ang husband mo, puede niyang dependent ang mother niya, kasi more than 60 years old na siya.

  130. Jheck says:

    Hi ask ko lang po , my wife is pregnant and plano kong gawin syang dependent ang problem is dpa kame kasal is it possible na payagan syang maging dependent ko? and kung magagamit nya ba yung philhealth ko sa panganganak nya.

    Thanks :)

    • Nors says:

      Hi Jheck, you can make your wife as your dependent only if you can present a marriage cert. She can register as Informal Sector member, pay Apr 2014 to Mar 2015 so she can avail this month or next month. If she gives birth in July or further on, she can pay Apr to June, so she can avail.

  131. Joy says:

    Hi, ako po c joy.. Ask ko po., meron po kung phil health na inapply ng company ko since 2011 at my number and id nrin aq pero dq sure if may naihulog ba ung company kc nagresign aq agad. Ang problema ko po ang ginamit kung apelyedo ei sa husband ko w/c is kasal po kmi, ngayun hiwalay na po kmi without legal separation, gusto ko po sanang tanung if pwede ba aq kumuha ng bagong phil health na gamit ang apelyedo ko? Thanks

    • Nors says:

      Hi Joy, meron ka bang ID na maiden surname mo ang nakasulat? Palagay ko, puedeng magregister ka as new member using your maiden surname. Pero opinion ko lang ito; sinabi ko lang na puede kasi ang ipapakita mo lang naman sa hospital is premium receipt, MDR and your ID. Pero sa legal system, ang legal surname mo talaga is your husband’s surname kasi naummpisahan mo nang ginamit ang surname niya. Sa law natin, once na ginamit mo ang husband’s surname, yon na ang surname mo until merong legal separation. Ask others too.

  132. hi maam/sir,
    tanong ko lng po kong pwede ko po mareimburse yong gastos ko po sa pagpapanganak ng girlfriend ko,kahit hindi kami kasal pero naregister ko na po ang anak namin gamit ang apilyedo ko sa civil registrar.

    • Nors says:

      Hi rendy, sorry hindi mo puedeng dependent ang gf mo, kasi required ang marriage certificate. Yong anak ninyo, yon ang dependent mo.

  133. nicie says:

    hello po. may itanong lng po ako. Ano po ba makukuha ng beneficiaries kung namatay na ang member ng philhealth. May burial din po ba at pension?

  134. Jessa says:

    hi,, nagtry po akong magregister online epro hindi mkaproceed sa next step kasi wala akong qualified dependents, i’m 20 yrs. old,my mother was already deceased and my father is not yet 60 years, old, wala na po aqng option.

  135. Jonalyn says:

    Good Morning. tanung ko lng po.member po ako ng philhealth pero sa dependents record ko.wala akong na filled out.nag register kasi ako online..ask ko lng kung paanu i-update ang record ko.

    Thank you.

    Please email me@

    • Nors says:

      Hi Jonalyn, you can update your data at the nearest Philhealth branch. Bring marriage or birth certificate or parent’s senior citizen ID (whatever is needed to prove relationship or age)

  136. Ben says:

    Hi, ask ko lang po kung magagamit pa ng mom ko yung philhealth benefits nya kasi last year lang siya nagstart eh paputol putol ang pagbayad niya. She needs to have her cyst remove so ask ko lang kung magagamit nya philhealth niya for the operation? thank you in advance

    • Nors says:

      Hi Ben, if she has her operation this April, dapat nabayaran niya ang Jan to March or any 3 months within 6 months immediately before April or month of operation. Look for a Philhealth-accredited surgeon

  137. ivy cepillo says:

    good day! ask ko lng po kung paano po ang Philhealth changes kapag tapos ng kasal sa isang hindi Filipino citizen. pwede po b sy mag apply ng Philhelath or pwedeng ako na lng po at ipapatuloy ko ang pag huhulog na pde din nyang magamit..kapag dito siya tumira..

  138. Nors says:

    Hi ivy, yes, puede mo na siyang dependent after makasal kayo, basta meron kang maipakitang marriage certificate (orig and xerox) sa Philhealth. Puede ring mag-apply siya as member habang hindi pa kayo kasal, kasi puede ang foreigner as member basta merong alien certificate.

  139. jaypee says:

    ask lang po pede po ba ilagay sa mga forms like sss passport at tulad nito na single? hiwalay na kasi ako but im not legally seperated. thnx

  140. Nors says:

    Hi jaypee, for Philhealth, just check Married, for legal purposes. Anyway, your civil status won’t affect your premium or coverage. In forms where there is the “Separated” option, then you can check this, but not “Legally Separated” because you’re not.

  141. lie pablo says:

    gudevening :)
    ask ko lang po if pwde q gamit ung philhealth ng mama q.. last 2011 pa ung last na hulog q when i was working.. im still 20 yrs and unmarried pdin po.. answer my question please :) tnx

  142. Nors says:

    Hi lie, yes, puede ka pang dependent ng mother mo kasi you’re younger than 21, unmarried and unemployed.
