How to Claim PhilHealth Benefits: A Quick Guide

Last Updated on

You’re eligible for PhilHealth benefits if you have paid the required number of contributions before confinement, are confined for at least 24 hours, and have not used up the 45-day allowance for room and board for the current year.

When filing a claim at the hospital, submit the following documents to the hospital before discharge:

  • Filled out PhilHealth Claim Form 1 (For employed members and sea-based OFWs, the employer/HR or manning agency should sign the Part IV – Employer’s Certification on the form.)
  • A copy of MDR (Not required if the hospital has a My PhilHealth Portal account)
  • Proof of contribution payments such as official receipts (If the information is not indicated on the MDR)
