How To Pay PhilHealth Contribution for Employees
Employees pay their share of contribution through salary deduction. Their employers remit the deducted amount plus the employer share to PhilHealth monthly.
How To Pay PhilHealth Contribution for Employers
All employers are required to use the Electronic Premium Remittance System (EPRS) for PhilHealth contribution payments. The EPRS is an online service that simplifies the remitting and reporting of employee and employer contributions to PhilHealth.
Here’s how to pay your employees’ contributions through the EPRS.
Step 1: Register for an EPRS Account
To access the EPRS, employers should register for an account online through the Electronic PhilHealth Online Access Form (ePOAF) using any browser.
Simply provide the required information on the online form.
The PEN field asks for the PhilHealth Employer Number. In contrast, the PIN of the PEER field requires the PhilHealth number of the PhilHealth Employer Engagement Representative (PEER), who is the employer’s designated official point person or representative.
Next, please enter the security code as it appears on the screen. Then click the Validate Employer button.
Alternatively, employers may manually fill out a PhilHealth Online Access Form and submit it to the nearest PhilHealth office.
After filing your online or manual employer registration, check your email for a message from PhilHealth with instructions that you should follow to proceed with your account creation.
Step 2: Update Your Employee Master List
This step ensures that you’re remitting and reporting correctly to PhilHealth.
First, log into your EPRS account. To update only a few employees, click the Edit Employee Profile button corresponding to the name of your employee/s and update each employee’s information as needed. When you’re done, click the Submit button.
To update many employees, click on Remittance Management > file upload.
Upload your latest employee master list in CSV file format. On the Applicable Period drop-down menu, select the month, and year you’re paying for.
Finally, click the Validate CSV File Format button and the OK button. You’ll see a short notification about successfully uploading your remittance report.
Step 3: Generate the Statement of Premium Account (SPA)
The SPA is the basis of how much contribution the employer should remit to PhilHealth.
To generate your SPA, click on Payment Management > Payment Posting. You’ll see the Summary of PhilHealth Premium Payment.
Hover the mouse over the print icon on the right side of the page and click on Generate SPA / PPPS.
The system will display your SPA. Print a copy of it, which you’ll use for the contribution remittance.
Step 4: Pay and Post Your PhilHealth Contribution
Deduct each employee’s share of contribution from his/her monthly basic salary. Refer to the PhilHealth contribution table for employees.
Afterward, remit your employees’ contribution and the employer’s share to any accredited over-the-counter collecting agents nationwide or through any online payment options no later than the due date.
a. How To Pay and Post Contributions via Over-the-Counter Collecting Agents
Present a copy of your latest SPA when contributing to PhilHealth.
Pay only the exact Total Amount Due indicated in your SPA. PhilHealth doesn’t accept insufficient or excess amounts for contribution payments.
After paying your PhilHealth contribution, follow these steps to post your contribution remittance online:
- Log into your EPRS account.
- Click on Payment Management > Payment Posting.
- Hover the mouse over the print icon and click on Payment for Posting.
- Click the Payment Option icon on the right side of the page.
- The Payment for Posting page will appear. On the Payment Option drop-down menu, select “Collecting Agent: Banks / Non-Banks.”
- On the drop-down menu, select the name of the bank or remittance center you transacted with.
- Type your official receipt (OR) number.
- Select the OR date (date of payment) from the drop-down menu.
- Click the Submit button.
Posting of your contribution payment will undergo validation by PhilHealth. It usually takes three days to post the remittance.
b. How To Pay and Post Contributions via Online Payment Channels
- On EPRS, click on Payment Management > Payment Posting.
- Click the Payment Option icon on the right side of the page.
- The Payment for Posting page will appear. On the Payment Option drop-down menu, select “Online Payment.”
- Select the bank which you have an online account with. The system will direct you to the online banking facility of your chosen bank.
- Proceed with the online contribution payment through your bank’s e-banking service.
- Once your transaction is complete, an official receipt (OR) number will be automatically generated. You can find your latest OR number in your transaction history. To view it, click on Transaction Monitoring > Transaction History.
- You’ll also be issued an Employer Remittance Report, which you can access by clicking on Remittance Management > Remittance Status. Your contribution remittance is immediately posted.
How To Pay PhilHealth Contribution for Voluntary Members/Self-Paying Individuals
Members who belong to any of the following categories must pay their PhilHealth contribution on their own:
- Self-employed individuals/Freelancers
- Informal workers
- Filipinos with dual citizenship
- Foreign retirees and other foreigners working and/or living in the Philippines
- iGroup members
The two requirements for PhilHealth contribution payment are the PhilHealth Identification Number (PIN) and the Statement of Premium Account (SPA). The latter serves as your billing statement and can be generated via the PhilHealth Member Portal. To access the said portal, you must first create an account.
Although the PhilHealth ID is not required for contribution payment, it’s best to have it in case you need to check your PhilHealth number or the cashier requests it for validation.
Here are two ways to pay your contribution as a voluntary member or self-paying individual:
Option 1: Over the Counter
Step 1: Go to Any PhilHealth Branch (Except Those in Malls) or Over-the-Counter Collecting Agent
When paying at a PhilHealth office, request a PhilHealth Premium Payment Slip (or download it here beforehand).
When paying at a third-party agent, ask for a payment/deposit/transaction slip for PhilHealth contribution.
Step 2: Fill Out the Payment Slip
Make sure to write down your correct PhilHealth number so that your payment will not be credited to another member’s account.
The Applicable Period/Month(s) field should also be filled out correctly to avoid an error in your record or delay in your transaction.
Filling out the payment slip for PhilHealth contribution payment can be confusing for first-timers. Here are some quick guides to help you properly provide the required information on the payment slip.
a. How To Fill Out the PhilHealth Premium Payment Slip

d. How To Fill Out the Bank Deposit/Payment Slip for PhilHealth Contribution Payment

Step 3: Submit the Payment Slip and Pay Your Contribution
Line up at the counter and hand your accomplished payment slip and cash payment to the cashier or teller.
Wait for the teller to issue your validated payment slip—proof of PhilHealth contribution payment.
Your payment would be posted in real-time if you settled it at a PhilHealth office. If you paid through an accredited collecting agent, posting takes up to two working days.
Option 2: Online
Self-paying members can now pay their PhilHealth contributions online through the newly revamped PhilHealth Member Portal.
How to Pay PhilHealth Contribution Online for Voluntary Members/Self-Paying Individuals
Follow the step-by-step guide below to learn how to pay your PhilHealth contributions online.
- Go to the PhilHealth Member Portal
- Log in with your PhilHealth number and password
- Look for “Payment Management” on the main menu and click the downward arrow to view the drop-down list
- Select Generate SPA. The SPA or Statement of Premium Account will serve as your billing statement. To access this and start paying your premiums online, ensure your “Member Information” is updated and complete. If you haven’t provided your monthly income yet, please submit a request via email (see the next section for more information).
- Under “Premium Payment Option,” select the number of months that you’ll be paying for. You can pay for 1 to 36 months (3 years).
- Wait for the payment management module to display the total contributions due for payment and the corresponding due date. The computation will be based on your declared monthly income. Again, without a monthly income declared on your Member Information, you won’t be able to generate SPA and pay your contributions online (see step 4)
- Choose an accredited collecting agent (ACA) from the options available. You can pay via IPAY-MYEG Philippines, Inc. Other payment partners will be added later.
- Select how you want to pay. Depending on your chosen payment partner, you can pay through a credit card, debit card, prepaid card, or mobile wallet like GCash. Expect to pay for additional service and convenience fees for the transaction
- Wait for the electronic PhilHealth Acknowledgement receipt or ePAR. You will also receive an email or SMS notification confirming the completed payment.

How To Update Monthly Income in PhilHealth Online
This guide is intended for PhilHealth voluntary members who want to update their declared monthly incomes online. By doing so, PhilHealth will enable you to pay your monthly contributions online, so you won’t have to go outside. Follow these steps to update your monthly income in PhilHealth online via email request:
1. Download the Philhealth Member Registration Form (PMRF)
To download the form, go to the official PhilHealth website, click downloads on the main menu, select Forms from the list of options, then click PMRF: PhilHealth Member Registration Form.
2. Print Out the Form
Since you’re required to enter personal details into the PMRF, you must print it out.
Take note that you have to fill out the form manually and then scan the duly accomplished document. PhilHealth won’t accept your request unless the answers and signatures are handwritten on the paper.
3. Fill Out the Form
Since you’re not a new member and only updating your existing records, tick the box that says “Updating/Amendment.”
Input your PhilHealth Identification Number (PIN) at the right topmost corner of the form.
When accomplishing the form, make sure only to use capital/upper case letters. Put “N/A” if the information is not applicable.
Input your personal information like name, mother’s maiden name, name of spouse (if applicable), date of birth, place of birth, civil status, citizenship, TIN, address, contact details, and type of PhilHealth membership (employed/self-earning individual/kasambahay/etc.).
At the bottom of the first page, input your monthly income in the designated box. You can leave the “Proof of Income” box blank.
Finally, provide your signature over your printed name on the second and last page of the form. Alternatively, you can affix your right thumbmark on the space provided if you cannot write.
4. Send Images or Scanned Copies of the Duly-accomplished Form and Two (2) Valid IDs to PhilHealth Action Center’s Email Address
Requests for online updating of monthly income should be sent to [email protected]
The subject line of your email must contain the following:
PHIC MEM INCOME UPDATE<space>Your Name<space>Province/Region
Example: PHIC MEM INCOME UPDATE CARDO DALISAY BULACAN
Don’t forget to attach the images or scanned copies of your duly accomplished PMRF and at least two (2) valid IDs for verification purposes.
Wait for PhilHealth’s confirmation via email that your monthly income has been updated. Depending on their workload, it can take anywhere from 24 hours to a few days.
If you want to check the status of your request, you can reach out to PhilHealth Corporate Action Center’s callback channel. Just text PHIC callback<space>Your mobile number or Metro Manila landline<space>Details of your concern to 09216300009.
Once they have received your request, they will try to call you back to give you an update. Since this mobile number is only used to receive callback requests, you will not get a response if you try to call it. Your request has already expired if you don’t get a callback after 48 hours. This happens when there are many requests, and yours can’t be accommodated anymore. If this is the case, try to send a request again via text or reach out to PhilHealth Action Center’s multiple social media channels.
Tips and Warnings
- If you can’t see the Payment Management option on your PhilHealth online account, you haven’t updated your membership record or declared monthly income. To update your monthly income, follow the instructions discussed in the latter part of this article.
- When filling out the PMRF to update your monthly income, manually input your answers and affix your signature. To do this, you must print out the form and scan it once it’s duly accomplished. PhilHealth won’t accept electronically signed forms.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Can I pay PhilHealth in 711 (7-Eleven)?
As of this writing, there’s no option available to enable PhilHealth members to pay their contributions at the nearest 7-Eleven branches. However, voluntary members don’t even have to go outside to pay contributions. After updating their monthly income, voluntary members can regularly pay their contributions from the comfort of their own homes. If you’re a voluntary member, log in to PhilHealth Member Portal, generate your Statement of Premium Account (SPA), and pay using your GCash account or debit/credit card.
2. Can I pay PhilHealth contribution for the months that I missed?
Yes. Under the UHC’s IRR, non-payment will not result in the termination of receiving benefits; however, you will be obligated to make up any missed payments and monthly interest compounding. Read the complete answer here.
3. I stopped paying my PhilHealth contributions years ago. How do I continue making payments?
You can be liable for any missed ones depending on when your previous premium was paid. To discuss your unique situation and the proper payment, it is recommended to stop by your local PhilHealth branch since this may differ from case to case. For more information, kindly read this article.
