  1. Hi lea, sa opinion ko, okay lang na both kayo, nakasulat na dependents nio ang 2 children nio. So, if you as mother want them written in your Philhealth data as dependents, just bring your children’s birth certificates (orig and xerox) and your IDs to Philhealth and fill-up the registration form (Check FOR UPDATING). If time comes that you need to use Philhealth for them, you choose kung kaninong Philhealth ang magagamit. Isa lang. Magtanong pa rin sa iba. thanks and best regards
