A New Year Gift from PhilHealth. PhilHealth loves you


new PhilHealth premium rates

Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) members will now have to pay higher contributions starting this month.

While the contributions will be equally shared by employers and employees, employed PhilHealth members who used to pay monthly contributions of P175 are now required to pay P200.

Meanwhile, individually paying members (IPMs) of the state-run health insurance fund who used to pay a monthly premium of P150 will also be required to pay P200.

IPMs, including self-employed and voluntary members, can choose three payment schemes: P600 per quarter, P1,200 semi-annually or P2,400 annually.

Aside from PhilHealth, another state-run fund the Social Security System (SSS) will also start collecting a higher membership premium this January. Read here: http://anc.yahoo.com
