Philhealth Payment Deadlines for the Informal Sector

For voluntary and self-employed Philhealth members, here are your Philhealth payment deadlines:

MONTHLY

If you are paying your Philhealth contribution monthly, your payment deadline is the LAST WORKING DAY of the Month

QUARTERLY

If you are paying quarterly, your payment deadline is the LAST WORKING DAY  of the Quarter.

SEMI-ANNUALLY

If you are paying semi-annually (for January to June and for July to December), your payment deadline is the LAST WORKING DAY of March (for January to June), and the LAST WORKING DAY of September (for July to December).

ANNUALLY

If you are paying annually, your payment deadline is the LAST WORKING DAY of March.

Are You Eligible for Philhealth coverage?

Bumalik na ang Philhealth eligibility sa dating requirement na pagbayad ng 9 months within 12 months BEFORE confinement.

Pag naospital ka ngayong buwan, magbilang ka ng 12 pabalik. Isama mo sa pagbilang ang ngayong buwan. Sa 12 months na binilang mo, dapat meron kang nabayaran na 9 months.

Update February 8, 2018:  Dahil siguro sa reklamo ng members, Philhealth moved the effectivity of this 9-within-12-months rule to October 1, 2018.

From January 1, 2018 up to September 30, 2018, ang eligibility requirement ay payment for 3 months within 6 months prior to confinement. Include month of confinement in the counting of 6 months.

Sa pag-check ng Philhealth premium payments for current hospitalization, hindi qualified ang premium payments na:

. binayaran on the date of hospital admission

. binayaran while confined in the hospital

. binayaran after hospital discharge

Qualified lang ang mga payments na binayaran BEFORE the DAY of admission.

200 Pesos Pa Rin Ba ang Monthly Philhealth Premium for Voluntary and Self-Employed Members?

Yes, 200 pesos pa rin.

Yong sa mga Employed members lang ang tumaas ang monthly contribution.

200 Pesos Din Ba ang Monthly Contribution ng mga landbased OFWs?

Yes, pero required na sila na magbayad annually. 2,400 per year. Puede rin silang magbayad ng premiums for 2 years.

Seafarers, Seamen or Sea-based OFWs

Ang sea-based OFWs are considered EMPLOYEES or EMPLOYED members kasi meron silang employers na naka-based dito sa Philippines. Ang monthly Philhealth contributions nila ay nade-deduct from their monthly salaries. Kasama sila sa pag-increase ng Philhealth monthly premiums.

  1. hi,,magtanong po ako tungkol sa payments like hollidays semana santa,,,28.29.ay holliday 30 sabado.31 linggo,,paano po yan???

    1. Hi cynthia, kung nakabayad ka ng para sa Jan to March 2018 noong holidays, valid yong receipt mo for Jan to March 2018. Kung ang tinatanong mo ay meron bang tumatanggap ng Philhealth payments sa holidays? Yes, Bayad Center at SM Business center. Siguro noong Friday, closed sila, pero Saturday and Sunday malamang open.

  2. puede po ba ibayad ung 1st quarter 2018 sa April 2, 2018… kasi sa last working day March 28, 2018 ay na declared as holiday(half day)…please help

    1. Hi bien, ang alam ko hindi na kasi lumampas na yong deadline, which was March 31. Puedeng magbayad sa Bayad Center or SM Center kahit weekends or holidays. Try nio pa rin sa Philhealth branch mismo sa Lunes.

  3. Magagamit ko ba ung philhealth sa MAY pag 2nd quarter na babayaran ko? Nkalimutan ko kasi bayaran 1st quarter pro nkabayad nman ako last quarter ng 2017.

    1. Hi Aimee, yes, ang qualifying 3 months mo will be Dec, April and May

  4. Hi, I was unemployed from March 2017 to present and I haven’t paid anything for Philhealth since then. Do I have anything to pay for like penalties etc.? Am I still required to pay even if I’m unemployed? Thanks in advance for your response.

    1. Hi Patty, walang penalties. Employer lang ang puedeng mag-penalties kung late sila magremit ng payments ng employees. Optional ang Philhealth sa hindi employees. Pero maganda pa rin na magbayad ng 200 a month para covered ka in case kelangan

  5. Margarette San Pedro

    Hi makakapag bayad pa po ba ako g January to March 2018? Nakalimutan ko po kasi mag bayad. Pero bayad ako last year 2017.. thank u

    1. Hi Margarette, sorry hindi na nila tatanggapin. Deadline was March 31. Pero covered ka pa naman this April if you have already paid for April 2018 and you have paid for Nov to Dec 2017 (3 months within 6 months)

  6. Hello po mam nora..ibig po sbhin kpag hindi nbyadan ung 1st quarter,laktaw n po un,bali 2nd quarter n po bbyadan nmin?ganun po b un mam

    1. Hi Annie, yes, pay for 2nd quarter. I hope you have paid for Nov Dec 2018 so you are still covered. Starting Oct 1, previous 9 monthly payments na ang required

  7. Hello po ask ko lang pwede ko pa bang bayaran ang 1st quarter ko nakalimutan ko kc dahil holiday at nasa province ako
    Ty po sa sasagot

    1. Hi Floi, sorry late na. Ang deadline was March 31, 2018. Bayaran mo na lang this quarter and onwards. Subukan mo pa rin sa Philhealth branch

  8. Paano po magbayad online?

    1. Hi Noel, sorry walang online payment system ang Philhealth for individual payors. If you’re in the USA, you can use Transfast, a BDO remittance partner. You use your US bank account or Visa/Mastercard debit or credit card.

  9. hi po ask ko lang po kasi sa september p po due date ko eh di ko nahulugan un jan-march pwde ko p po b un hulugan ngaun april ?,…kung ngaun april nmn po aq mgstart ng hulog magagamit ko p po b un philhealth ko sa september , ?…. thanks po

    1. Hi Irene, pay for April to Sep so you can use Philhealth in September. Puede ring Ap to June muna asap, then pay for July to Sep in July. Starting Oct 1, nine previous payments na ang required

  10. Hello po hindi po kasi ako nakapag hulog ngayong jan-march, pwede po kaya ngayong april to dec na po kagad hulugan ko para incase po na may emergency magagamit ko po? Salamat po

    1. Hi Lilac, yes, pay for April to Dec, and if you have paid for Nov and Dec 2017, you can avail of Philhealth this April and onwards

  11. Hello po, pwde pb humabol ng payment ngayong April para sa January to March…due date po kasi ng panganganak ay November 2018. Salamat.

    1. Hi Evelyn, sorry hindi na. Ask the hospital or clinic kung puede sa kanila yong “women about to give birth” policy na you pay for one year so you will be covered. Starting Oct 1, nine previous monthly payments na ang required, so ask about this option.

  12. Meron po bang deadline para sa mga OFW philhealth payment nila, qualify din po ba sila sa 3mos, 6mos and annually ano po mga deadline kung sakali

    1. Hi Lecel, OFWs can pay anytime, pero one-year payment na ang required, at tandaan na ang eligibility is within the payment period. Example, if you pay for Apr 20 2018 to Apr 20 2019, you can use Philhealth within those dates. Yan ang maganda sa OFWs, magagamit agad, starting from date of payment.

  13. Hi po ang mother ko ay pwd member pero voluntary payment ang ginagamit nya sa philhealth,but we forgot to pay her 1st quarter this year and she admitted last april 14 2018 until now nasa hospital pa din kmi but i just paid her philhealth only this april 23 ,dhil pblik blik na sya sa hospital at ako lng nkatutok sa knya i forgot to pay her 1st quarter,she is pwd member and a stage 4 breast cancer patient.pls help me can i use her philhealth?sobrang laki n po ksi ng bill nmin and we dont know where we will get money.

    1. Hi Liza, sorry hindi puedeng magamit ang Philhealth niya kasi yong start of confinement nia na April 14 ay nauna sa Ap 23 premium payment mo. Dapat mas nauuna ang premium payments. Kung merong certification ang disability ng mother mo, you can go to Philhealth and update mo ang Philhealth MDR mo para dependent mo siya. Baka merong PCSO desk diyan sa hospital, mag-ask ka ng assistance. Puede ring mag-ask ng assistance sa city hall nio or sa offices ng mga senators and congressmen, sa office of the President. Bring medical papers and bills.

  14. Hi ask ko lang nakalimutan ko pomg mag bayad from january to march balak ko sana kase yearly pwde ko pa po ba bayaran yung january2018 to january 2019? Thanks

    1. Hi Abbie, you can pay Apr 2018 to March 2019. Hindi na tatanggapin ang payment for Jan to March

  15. Hi paano po magkakapagbayad sa philhealth if bagong miyembro lang po then individually member po .. salamat

    1. hi Emz, go to Philhealth with your ID or birth cert or barangay cert with 600 pesos. Fill up the registration form. Check Informal Economy, No Income. Kung wala ka pang 600 pesos, try mo baka puede ang 1 month lang, which is 200 pesos.

  16. charon p. rebayla

    good day po maam ask ko lang po panu po malalaman kong active or hindi kc yon philhealth ko.po sa province po cya. gusto ko po transper dito manila? pwdy po ba maam humabol sa pagbabayad ng vulontary philhealth? kapanganakan ko is january2019.. godbless

    1. Hi charon, puede kahit saang branch nag-register o nagbayad sa Philhealth. Pero late ka na for paying the 9-month-requirement, so basahin mo itong post ko dito: Women about to give birth.

  17. Pwede pa ba ako mgbayad for 2nd quarter of 2018? Date ngayon is July 26,2018.

    1. Hi Jayson, sorry hindi na. Deadline for 2nd quarter payment was June 30.

      1. Hello pero I can still pay for 3rd and fourth quarter? anong mangyayari if naging ganon? thank you!

        1. Hi Daniel, yes. If you missed only 3 months, you’ll still have coverage.

  18. hi po. ask ko lang po kng anu yong mga dis qualifications na mangyayari kasi po nakalimutan ko mag bayad last month (June) quarterly po bayad ko Jan-Mar nakapag pay ako yong Apr-Jun nakalimutan ko sabi ng nasa counter knina (western union) d na pwede kasi last day of june po dw nag due. kng magbabayad ako jul-sept start na nman ako from the root? kasi last yr na complete ko nmn bayad ko now lng ako nag missed. I mean d na po ba ako qualified s mga benefits ng phil health pag na missed po ako ng bayad?

    1. Hi Lj, buti na lang 3 months lang ang na-miss mo kasi eligible ka pa. Pay asap July to Sep then in the last quarter, pay Oct to Dec. Basta within the quarter ka magbayad ng quarterly. Halimbawa you need Philhealth this July, you can use your payment receipt for Feb Mar and July as your qualifying payments (3 months within 6 months). Starting Oct 1, nine past monthly payments within the past 12 months na ang needed. If you need Philhealth in Oct, you will use your payments for Nov to Mar and July to Oct as your qualifying payments (9 within 12 months).

  19. Hi! Nakalimutan kong mag-bayad for 2nd quarter. Hindi na pong pwedeng bayaran yun ‘diba? what will happen po? Pero bayad naman ako last year.

    1. Hi cris, hindi na, lumampas na ang deadline. Basta 3 months lang ang na-miss mo, okay pa. Huwag lang lumampas sa 3 months ang na-miss mo. Remember to pay every quarter.

  20. Ma’am tanong kolang po,if mga 3 years na di nabayaran philhealth ko,may pinalties PO ba?

    1. Hi Anna, walang penalties. At hindi na puedeng bayaran ang past quarters. Employers ang merong penalties. This month, bayaran mo lang ang for July Aug and Sept and you can use it in Sep. Pero starting Oct 1, nine past monthly payments na ang requirement, so continue paying, and qualify again in March.

  21. Good day po! Hindi po ako nakahulog 1st and 2nd quarter. Ngayong august lang po ako nakahulog. Naconfine po anak ko, diko po magagamet. Anu po dapat ko gawin?thank u po

    1. Hi Arlene, kung super laki ang bill, pumunta ka sa social service dept ng hospital at humingi ng assistance para makahingi ng assistance from PCSO. Puede ring ask assistance from your city officials or sa offices sa Congress.

  22. Maam, kaylan ko ba magagamit ang philhealth ko first time po as informal bayad po ako sa july to Sep.?

    1. Hi Gel, sa September magagamit mo na. Starting Oct 1, nine monthly payments na ang requirement, pero kung first-time ever ka na member, sabihin mo sa hospital, in case you get confined.

  23. January Feb March 2018 Lang po hulog ko sa philhealth. Magagamit ko po ba un?

    1. Hi Tina, starting Oct 1, magagamit mo kasi 9 monthly payments within the past 12 months na ang required. Pero kung hospitalization is this August, yong March payment lang ang magagamit mo, kasi ang requirement is payment of at least 3 months within March to August

      1. Hi

        Last payment ko Po this yr. Is March 2018, from employed to voluntary ,Kung babayarn ko Po ung April to Sept. Tatangapin pa Po ba Ng philhealt at magiging qualified Po ko o dapat ko Po tlga Byran na ei April to Dec.

        Oct. Po due date ko

        1. Hi shiena, yes, sana kung nabayaran mo on time ang April to June, puede na sanang hindi WATGB ang gamitin mo kasi meron kang 9 monthly payments, pero dahil hindi na tatanggapin ang April to June payment under regular payment deadlines, kelangang gamitin mo ang WATGB program, which requires payment for the whole year. Kaya required na April to Dec ang bayaran mo. Tanungin mo rin yong hospital o clinic where you will give birth para sure na alam nila ang WATGB.

  24. Hi po. Pwde pa po akong makpagbayad ng self emloyed mula may . Kasi po last n hulog ko is april pa nung ngsara ang boracay. Bali manganganak po kasi ako ngayung nov. 2018.

    1. Hi Aiza, sorry hindi na tinatanggap ang payments from May to June. Pero kung paid ang Jan to April at babayaran mo ang July to Nov, puede kang maka-avail in November. Jan to April (4 months) at July to Nov (5 months), so makakaipon ka ng 9 months. Payment of 9 months within the past 12 months na ang required na paid para maka-avail. Pay July to Sep asap this Sep. Sa October, hindi na tatanggapin ang July-Sep payment.

  25. Hi

    Ask ko lang Po , last payment ko Po KC this yr is March 2018 at due date ko Po is Oct. Kung babayarn ko Po Ang April to Sept. Tatangapin Po ba nila Ang payment o required Na Po talaga na
    April to Dec. Na Ang bayaran ko para maging qualified ako under WATGB POLICY

  26. Hi good morning paano po kapag di nahulugan ng 1 year yung philhealth dahil nag stop na sa trabaho ?

    1. Hi Anne, hindi mo magagamit ang Philhealth kung ganon. Starting Oct 1, required na ang payment of 9 monthly premiums within the past 12 months. This Sep, puede pa yong 3 monthly premiums. If this is for maternity, basahin mo ito: Women about to give birth
