Philhealth Dependents — Child Under 21 and Pregnant

If you are PREGNANT, and you are  younger than 21, unmarried, and unemployed, you can be a dependent of your mother or father who is a Philhealth member.  You will be able to avail of your maternity benefit as dependent.

But it is advised that you register as Philhealth member so that your baby will be covered by Philhealth.  You cannot use your parent’s Philhealth for your baby, in case your baby needs further treatment.

Your baby will be YOUR dependent.  Your baby CANNOT be a dependent of your parents.

Additional reminder:  If you’re younger than 19, and you want to use Philhealth for your delivery, you should give birth in a hospital, not at a lying-in or maternity clinic. Source: Maternity Care Package Rules
