How to Apply for PhilHealth Insurance for Unemployed Filipinos



Nowadays it's so difficult to do your everyday routine if you or somebody close to you gets sick. Aside from the stress of taking care of a sick person, there's also other factors such as work absences, medicine bills and hopefully not, hospital bills. It would be harder if you're an unemployed Filipino. There's a solution though: Apply for PhilHealth Insurance.

If you are an unemployed Filipino and you wish to apply for PhilHealth insurance, here are the steps to be a member of PhilHealth (as derived from the official PhilHealth website):

Registration procedures and documentary requirements
  • Fill out PhilHealth Membership Registration Form
  • Attach clear copy of supporting documents for qualified dependents to be declared
  • Registrant will be issued his/her PhilHealth Identification Number or PIN and the Member Data Record or MDR and shall be asked to pay the required premiums to the PhilHealth Cashier or at any of PhilHealth's accredited collecting banks

Premium requirements
