Get Philhealth Number from Previous Employer

Assuming you have worked in private and/or government companies, when it comes to getting your philhealth number the easiest way is inquire directly to your previous employer by simply going back or calling their office and ask the HR personnel who handle these types of concern. Lets just hope that they still have your records. Now, for whatever reasons, you don’t want to seek help from your previous employer, you can inquire directly to philhealth office near you, or go to the main office. Its Head office is located at Citystate Centre, 709 Shaw Boulevard, Pasig City 1603, Philippines. Before going to their office I suggest that you inquire first to their call center hotline 441-7442 or send an email via info(at) It will help you save time, money, and effort.

First Time Philhealth Number Application

The first two mentioned are for those who already have existing number. What about those who haven’t got one? Go to any philhealth branches near your location. It is advisable to prepaire two valid ID’s for verification purposes. Fill up member registration form then submit. Wait for the Member Data Record (MDR). After wards pay the needed amount or premiums. Individually paying members can pay P600 quarterly, semi-annually of P1200. If you want to pay for the whole year you have to shell out P2400.

OFWs can also become a principal Philhealth member for their dependents in the Philippines. They just have to submit filled-up member registration form to the nearest branch together with other needed documents. Wait for the MDR then pay the P2400 for whole year coverage.

Becoming a member can now be done via online registration. Self-employed, employed, OFWs, and retirees from private and government sectors can become a member without going to PHealth branch -They can do it electronically. Go to

I am also like you who sometimes forget my id number and have to visit their respective offices to get mine. For your own safety, don’t leave any comments that includes your complete name, personal details such as mobile number, ID number.
