Philhealth Online Registration

Philhealth online registration– PhilHealth has an online system that enables Filipinos to enroll as members plus their dependents using just a computer or mobile device with an internet connection.

This online service is available only to employees, self-employed people, OFWs, and pensioners. 

Here are the simple steps for online PhilHealth membership registration.

Step 1: Access the PhilHealth Electronic Registration System.

Visit the PhilHealth online registration website to start your enrollment. Use Internet Explorer to avoid issues when using the website, which can happen in other browsers such as Google Chrome and Safari.

Sometimes, the electronic registration system is inaccessible due to a server issue. This is a common problem among government websites. Just be patient and refresh the page from time to time. You may also try clearing your browser cache. 

Once you access the site, click the Proceed button. Then check the box to agree to the Terms and Conditions. Lastly, click the Accept button.

Step 2: Fill out the PhilHealth online registration form.

Completing the PhilHealth online form is pretty straightforward. The required fields with an asterisk (*) should be properly filled out, so you can continue your registration.

If you live in Metro Manila, answering the Address fields is quite tricky and confusing. In the Province drop-down menu, you’ll have to choose from districts 1 to 6 of NCR.

So you can quickly select the correct response, here are the cities that belong to each NCR district:

  • District 1: First district of Manila (Binondo, Ermita, Intramuros, Malate, Port Area, Quiapo, Sampaloc, San Miguel, San Nicolas, Santa Ana, Santa Cruz, Tondo)
  • District 2: Mandaluyong, Marikina, Pasig, Quezon City, San Juan
  • District 3: Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, Valenzuela
  • District 4: Las Piñas, Makati, Muntinlupa, Parañaque, Pasay, Pateros, Taguig
  • District 6: Paco, Pandacan, Sampaloc (Sta. Mesa), and Sta. Ana, Manila

The Zipcode field will automatically be generated after you’ve selected your province, city/municipality, and barangay.

Under the Dependents Information section, you can add as many qualified dependents as you’d like.

The PIN field refers to your dependent’s PhilHealth ID number. Just leave this field blank if your dependent has never been issued a PhilHealth number. After entering all details of your dependent, click the Add Beneficiary button. 

Guardians who are enrolling for PhilHealth membership on behalf of a minor should fill out the Guardian Information section. Skip this section if it doesn’t apply to you. 

Under the Membership Category Information section, choose the category that applies to you. Clicking the Member Category drop-down menu will show these six items:

  • Government – Choose this if you’re a government employee.
  • Household – Choose this if you’re a kasambahay or a household employer enrolling on behalf of your kasambahay.
  • Individually Paying Member – Choose this if you’re applying as a voluntary member.
  • Lifetime – Choose this if you’re a pensioner.
  • Overseas Filipino Worker
  • Private – Choose this if you’re employed by a private company or corporation.

If you click on “Individually Paying Member,” three choices will appear on the Member Type drop-down menu: Others, Self-Employed – Non-professional, and Self-Employed – Professional. 

Choose “Others” if you’re a fresh graduate or college student enrolling in PhilHealth for your pre-employment requirement. Minors, expats, foreign retirees, and foreign students also fall under this membership type. 

The PhilHealth online registration form will ask for the PhilHealth Employer Number (PEN) if you selected “Government,” “Household,” or “Private.” Request the PEN from your employer or HR department.

Although the PEN field is supposedly not a required field, the online registration process won’t be completed without it.

Step 3: Upload the PhilHealth requirements.

Skip this step if you prefer to submit your documents personally to PhilHealth. However, it’s much more convenient to do this online instead. 

Take clear photos of your documents for PhilHealth registration and save the file in your computer or cellphone. Each file should be 2MB or less and in JPEG, PNG, PDF, or GIF format.

Under the Description column, select the type of ID you’ll upload. Then click the Choose File button to upload the image.

You may need to upload additional documents depending on the membership category you’re applying for. 

Next, type the Captcha code as it appears on your screen. Then check the box to confirm the truth and accuracy of your information. 

Finally, click the Submit Registration button.

Step 4: Check your email for a confirmation message.

Within a few minutes after submitting your registration, you should receive an email message from PhilHealth eRegistration System. It contains a verification link that you’ll click for completing your PhilHealth online registration.

If the message is not in your inbox, look for it in the Spam or Bulk E-mail folder. 

Step 5: Wait for your PhilHealth number.

Once your registration is verified, you’ll receive another email message with a transaction number that you’ll use to follow up on the status of your application. It also includes the email address of the PhilHealth office nearest your location where you’ll send your follow-up inquiry. 

When doing a follow-up, your email subject should be “Online Registration Inquiry: Transaction No- [Insert your transaction number]”.

Note: The transaction number is not your PhilHealth number. You’ll receive your PhilHealth Identification Number (PIN) in a separate email after one to three weeks.
