Ailments, especially those that require hospital confinement, surgery, and maintenance medications can be challenging not just on the physical aspect, but more so on our finances. When one gets employed, he is required to submit his Philhealth number to ensure that all contributions are properly remitted by his employer into his account. Even self-employed individuals, OFWs, and individually paying members must ensure that their payments are updated all the time. We never know when we might need to use our Philhealth benefits.
To help keep all of us updated, I am sharing the following Philhealth Contribution Tables for 2016 for employed, self-employed and individually-paying members, and OFWs. Print this out to make sure that you never miss a payment schedule.
