Philhealth Number Application is Now Online!

PhilHealth No (1).jpg

Since we are on the subject of all things going online and electronic, I’m sharing my research on getting a Philhealth number through… yes, online means.  This has been around for quite some time now but I’m posting it just the same for those who just graduated, have never gotten around to getting their Philhealth numbers, for your household helpers and family drivers, their families, etcetera.  My motto is you’ll never know who might need it so go ahead and publish it!

Every Filipino MUST have his own Philhealth number.  It is important too that you keep a record of your Philhealth number while waiting to get a physical card.  Whether you are employed or self-employed, make sure that your contributions are updated (very minimal monthly contributions, I tell you.). Tandaan, Daig ng Maagap ang Masipag.

So how to get a Philhealth number online?  Easy.  Read on.

  1. Log on to
  2. Click on Online Services. This can be found on the green bar right below the Philhealth logo.
  3. Choose Electronic Registration and click on Register.
  4. You will be taken to the Welcome Page. Here you will be informed that this is Phase 1 of Electronic Registration and Amendment System (ERAS), much like the SSS Number online application that I posted a few weeks back.
  5. A brief read on the Terms and Conditions follows the welcome page. Read this and tick the I agree box, then click on the Accept button.
  6. You will then be taken to the electronic registration form.  Here you will be asked to key in your:
    • Personal Information
    • Contact Details
    • Address
    • Dependents’ Information
    • Guardian Information
    • Membership Category Information

At the bottom of the form is an option to upload scanned copies of documents and IDs to further validate the authenticity of the online application and the applicant’s identity.  These files must be scanned and saved as either jpeg/jpg, png, gif, or pdf formats, and no larger than 2MB per document.  Before sending, verify that all entries in the document are clear and readable even through a computer monitor or laptop.

One such document is an NSO Birth Certificate.  Save the scanned copy on your desktop and upload it under the Browse column.  The Birth Certificate is best especially when you have declared dependents and beneficiaries.

After submitting the form and the scanned documents and IDs, you will receive an email from Philhealth informing you of the second phase of the application.  Access the email address you provided in the registration page and check for any email messages from Philhealth.  To activate your membership and be eligible for benefits, start paying your premiums.

Try it now!

    1. Hi Christopher,

      Ito ang policy ng Philhealth para magamit ng member ang kanyang Philhealth benefits:

      Member must have at least three (3) months’ premium contributions within the immediate six (6) months prior to the month of availment.

      Since 2012 pa ang huling hulog sa iyong Philhealth account, malaki ang posibilidad na hindi mo magamit ang mga benefits ngayon.


    1. Hi Mae,

      Ito ang mga dapat mong gawin para makakuha ka ng digitized ID ng Philhealth:

      Fill-out two (2) copies of the PhilHealth Member Registration Form
      Submit PMRF to the nearest LHIO together with the following documents:
      Two (2) 1×1 latest ID picture,
      Two valid IDs; and
      Any of the following documents:

      Pwede kang mag follow up sa Philhealth office kung saan ka nag apply kung kelan mare-release ang IDs.


  6. Hi po. Nag apply po ako sa dating company ng philhealth id and paid the fee of 90 pesos. Pagalos ko sa company ko d kp na na tanggap ung ID. San ko kaya pwede kunin un? May. satelite ofc sa ali mall, pwede kays dun?

    1. Kung yung company mo ang nag host ng pag kuha ninyo ng Philhealth ID (meaning, nagpunta si Philhealth sa office ninyo at doon kayo kinunan ng details and picture), most likely doon din dineliver ng Philhealth yung mga IDs. You may want to check with your old company kung nasa kanila yung ID mo.

      Kung wala naman dun, you can ask Philhealth by calling their Action Center hotline at 4417442.

  12. Bakit yong philhealth number ko hindi ganito at saka sana pwede narin magamit as goverment I’D ang philhealth..nagtaka lang ako bakit Di pwede as suporting ID lalo na sa banko at mga remittance?

    1. Hi Alma,

      Kung may discrepancy sa Philhealth number na naka lagay sa Philhealth ID mo at sa ginagamit mo, pwede kang mag inquire sa pinaka malapit na Philhealth office.

      Ang Philhealth ID ay isa nang valid government-issued ID. Ang pag require ng mga banko at remittance centers ng karagdagang IDs para sa iyong mga transactions ay discretion ng mga institutions na ito, hindi ng Philhealth.


      1. Ask ko lang naghulog ako sa philhealth ng July to dec2016 at manganganak ako ng lastweek of dec or 1st week of january pwede ko n po ba magamit yung philhealth ko pag nanganak ako?

  13. I am a Philhealth active member, I am a senior citizen now. Do I still need to pay my Philhealth contribution since I am a senior citizen already. Tnks.

  14. Hi po! One year na po ako na walang work, at hindi nakakapaghulog monthly sa Philhealth. Yung company po kasi ang naghuhulog automatically dati every month. May maaari po bang maging problema dahil dito?

    Meron na po akong ID, pero yun po yung parang papel lang, didikitan ng picture at kailangan ilaminate. Meron na po bang bagong ID na dapat kuhanin sa Philhealth? Kagaya po ng nasa sample niyo sa taas.

    Salamat po!

      1. Ano po yung requirements para doon sa bagong card type na ID?

        Kailangan po ba ay bayaran ko yung mga months na nalaktawan, kahit na wala naman po akong source of income nung time na yun?

  15. hi Sir,ask ko lang po kung hanggang anong age puede kumuha ng Philhealth at SSS para sa isang self employed?

    1. Required kasi yung Philhealth number kapag nag ceheck ka sa online. Mag pa punta ka na lang muna sa Philhealth office ng representative para makakuha ka ng kopya ng MDR or malaman ang number mo.

      2. Hi Evelyn,

        Dapat siguro dumiretso ka na sa pinakamalapit na Philhealth office para ma-confirm sa kanila yung contributions mo at matulungan ka nilang gumawa ng panibagong online account. Wala po kaming access sa Philhealth records.
