4 Ways to Pay for Your PhilHealth Contributions

Never miss a PhilHealth contribution payment, especially now that we are facing a global pandemic.  If you are used to paying for your contributions at PhilHealth offices, it may be good to know that there are other options available for you.  Choose the most convenient and safe payment method. What is important is you don’t miss a payment so that you can use your PhilHealth benefits anytime without any problems.

Read on.

  1. Over-the-counter payments.

PhilHealth has partnered with quite a handful of banks and payment hubs and you are sure to find one near you.  You can pay for your PhilHealth contributions at any of these banks’ branches, over-the-counter:

  • Asia United Bank
  • Bank of Commerce
  • Bank One Savings & Trust Corporation
  • Bayad Center outlets
  • Camalig Bank
  • Century Rural Bank
  • Century Savings Bank
  • China Bank and China Bank Savings
  • Citystate Savings Bank
  • Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP)
  • Eastwest Rural Bank
  • Landbank
  • Maybank
  • Money Mall Rural Bank
  • One Network Bank
  • Overseas Filipino Bank
  • Penbank
  • Philippine Business Bank
  • Philippine Veterans Bank
  • RCBC and RCBC Savings Bank
  • Robinsons Bank
  • Rural Bank of Bambang
  • Rural Bank of Jose Panganiban
  • Rural Bank of Sta. Catalina
  • Saviour Rural Bank
  • SM Business Centers
  • SM Bills Payment
  • UCPB
  • UCPB Savings Bank
  • UnionBank

Take note that due to the quarantine policies implemented in MECQ areas, most banks close at 2PM. Make sure to visit their branches earlier in the day.

2. Online Payment Channels

The online payment channels were made available by PhilHealth for employers and volunteer members (self-paying).  This makes it easier to post payments and avoid missing a contribution date.

Employers may use the following online bank portals to pay for their employees’ PhilHealth contributions:

  • BPI Express Link
  • Security Bank Digibanker
  • Unionbank’s OneHub.gov
  • Bancnet e-Gov

Self-paying individuals can use the PhilHealth Member Portal to pay for their contributions online.  The online portal was activated and made available to self-paying PhilHealth members last March 2021. You can access the PhilHealth Member Portal here.  If you do not have an online account on the PhilHealth’s member portal, get the complete instructions from my previous blog .

How to pay online using the Member Online Portal:

  1. After you have logged in to your account, look for the Payment Management link on the main menu. Collapse the dropdown list and select Generate SPA.
  2. Under the Premium Payment Option, indicate the number of months you will be paying for. The payment management module will compute and display the total contributions due for payment and due dates.
  3. You will be asked to choose your mode of payment. You can pay using your credit or debit card, prepaid card, and GCash. Convenience fees apply.
  4. You will receive an ePAR or the electronic PhilHealth Acknowledgment Receipt as proof of your payment. This will be sent through email or SMS that is why it is best to keep your SSS details updated, especially when you change your mobile number.

5. At a PhilHealth Branch

PhilHealth offices still accept over-the-counter payments at their offices, during office hours. You can download a PhilHealth Premium Payment Slip here so you can fill it out before you proceed to a PhilHealth office.

Only individual members and employers of kasambahays may use this slip. Employers of large corporations or government agencies must use their Statement of Premium Account when paying.

6. Overseas Payments

OFWs and Filipinos residing abroad may pay for their PhilHealth contributions through the following overseas collecting partners:

  • Bank of Commerce’s foreign remittance partners
  • Bayad Center
  • DBP’s payment partners
  • iRemit
  • Ventaja

I hope these information helped! Always keep your PhilHealth contributions updated so you won’t have any problems when claiming benefits when the need arises.
