PhRO 7 Posts 198 Registrants through e-RAS March 30, 2012

A little over a month after the launching of PhilHealth's electronic registration system, about 198 individuals in Central Visayas have already availed of the online registration facility.

PhilHealth introduced its e-Registration and Amendment System (eRAS) on its 17th anniversary in February as a convenient alternative for enrolling into the National Health Insurance Program. This is especially useful for individuals based or assigned in places where the nearest PhilHealth office is still some distance away or those currently based outside the country.

The web-based facility caters to individual transactions and accommodates applications for registration of Individually Paying Members (IPM), Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW), lifetime members and employees.

Use of the system is free of charge, but enrollees must have their own e-mail address to be able to transact. Supporting documents needed to process the application for registration may also be submitted online or sent via post. Once the registration process is complete, the member's PhilHealth Identification Number (PIN), which shall be used for all PhilHealth transactions, will be sent to the member through email.

Interested enrollees may visit PhilHealth's official website at Look for Online Services and then Electronic Registration. Clicking on these options will lead the site visitor to the online application form.

Upon submission of the online application form, the registrant will receive an email containing the transaction number and instructions on the next steps to complete the registration process. If the registrant opts to send supporting documents via post, the email printout should be attached or the transaction number should be written in the supporting documents. All documents must be received by PhilHealth within 30 days from registering online to complete the application. (END)
