PhilHealth renews 35,000 memberships
by PIA–Kalinga

TABUK,   Kalinga – The membership of more than 35,000 PhilHealth members in the province identified under the National Household Targeting System of the Department of Social Work and Development have been renewed this year.

The number includes emancipated members, those below 21 years old, married or unmarried, and their qualified dependents. Also with renewed membership are some local government unit-sponsored members.

To complete the renewal of sponsored members this year, local government units need to write the provincial and city health offices for the list for submission to PhilHealth. Municipal local government units may do it in package, according to Hideko Apilado of PhilHealth field office.

To attain universal coverage, membership focal persons assigned in hospitals continue with the enrolment of qualified non-member patients.

Apilado also reminded that effective January, the monthly Philhealth  premium contributions shall be at the rate of 2.75 percent computed straight based on the monthly basic salary, with a salary floor of P10,000 and a ceiling of P40,000 to be equally shared by the employees and their employer.

In accordance with Republic Act 10361 or the Domestic Workers’ Act, the premium contribution of the kasambahays shall be shouldered solely by the household employer. However, if the kasambahay is receiving a monthly salary of P5,000 or above, he or she shall pay his/her proportionate share.

Further, processing of PhilHealth claims is now on-line through the PhilHealth Online Access System. Hospitals including private, rural health units and other PhilHealth-accredited health care institutions are required to connect to the internet to make transaction easy and payment prompt through five modules.
