PhilHealth registration made easier for every Juan February 4, 2014

ENLISTING with PhilHealth has never been this easy and convenient for Filipino families wanting to have financial protection against costly health care services.

The state health insurance agency has simplified its membership registration process by just requiring a properly filled-out PhilHealth Member Registration Form (PMRF) from prospective members, nothing more, nothing less.

"The time and money needed to gather numerous documents in the past have made it difficult for many families to avail themselves of the most affordable health insurance in the country today" explained PhilHealth President and CEO Alexander A. Padilla.

"Waiving too many documents at enrolment effectively removes barriers to coverage by making it easier for more Filipinos to register with us" the PhilHealth Chief added.

Prospective members shall only be required a properly filled out and signed PMRF (in duplicate) at any PhilHealth office and other authorized registration centers before they are assigned their permanent PhilHealth Identification Number (PIN). The PIN is used in paying contributions, availment of benefits, updating of membership profile, among others.

Members with internet access can also register online by logging on to

By signing the PMRF, a member certifies under oath that all information supplied in the form, including their declared dependents, are true and accurate. However, PhilHealth clarified that it can still ask for supporting documents only if warranted.

Padilla also assured members that the simplified enrollment comes hand-in-hand with simplified benefit availment in hospitals and other health facilities through the case-based payment system which took effect in January this year. END
