Philhealth Contribution Table 2014 for Self-Employed, Voluntary, and OFW

The latest Philhealth Contribution Table for 2014 has been released. Self-employed, voluntary, and OFW plan your way on when you are going to pay your monthly contribution to experience the full benefits of this social health insurance program from the government.

Philhealth has played a very important role in the lives of its members. Often it was realized only in times of health problems. A member needs to be hospitalized, or its dependents have to undergo an emergency procedure. After which, the member who would pay the hospital bill will say “good thing I have Philhealth, my bill was reduced significantly.” On the other side, those members who don’t pay their contribution regularly regret much when unforeseen health problems occur.

For responsible members just continue with what you are doing, and for those members who won’t pay their contribution maybe, this is the time to change your mind as it would really benefit you and your dependents in the long run.

PhilHealth Contribution Details 2013 for Individual / Self Employed

Settling monthly Philhealth contribution dues are one of the task that every working and self-employed Filipinos should consider. It is like the premiere health care insurance company of the country and almost every private and government hospitals honor Philhealth. It may not cover all the illness, but it could reduce hospital expenses of a member and their relatives. I do not know if it’s only me, but when I was able to settle my dues I felt relieve. Relieve in a way that when someone has to go the hospital I would have to worry less about it financially (hopefully).

I was able to visit Philhealth Branch near Quirino LRT station last week. My purpose of visiting the office is to settle my Philhealth contribution as voluntary/self-employed. Instead of settling it quarterly I decided to pay my contribution for the whole year. It costs me P1800. It is expensive, But for me it’s worth the buck. It’s like paying for inner peace for the whole year (yay!!!). I know I am not the only self-employed in the Philippines so I am sharing this Philhealth Monthly payment scheme in case you wanted to settle your dues with the government’s health care insurance agency.

Philhealth-contribution 2013

The new payment scheme is updated as of January 2013. Annual payment is P1800, Semi-annual is P900 and quarterly is P450.

If you are planning to visit their office I would suggest that you come at 8AM, or after lunch time at 1:30PM. This is to avoid surge of people settling also their contributions.

Update: Please see Philhealth Contribution Table for 2014 for the rates and other details.
