When our baby, Pao-pao, got confined..we needed to prepare the requirement for Philhealth to be able to get a claim to lessen our expenses for the hospital. And it was really a great help for us…it maybe not the whole amount but it was a great less.
Here’s are some tips and list of requirements.
You can get this from the hospital or download it at www.philhealth.gov.ph. Fill your information together with the patient’s information then give it to your employer to be filled-up.
CERTIFICATE OF CONTRIBUTION
This is a certificate of your contribution to PhilHealth from your employer. It should state at least 6 months of contribution. Stating your participating amount, date of payment and OR number.
MDR (Member Data Record)
This your record from Philhealth together with your beneficiaries. This is a proof that your are registered at Philhealth. You can get this at any Philhealth center near you.
PROOF OF RELATION
If the patient is not registered with your Philhealth (shown in your MDR), you need to provide this requirement.
If the patient is your spouse, you need a Marriage Certificate. And if the patient is your child, parent, or sibling, you need their Birth Certificate.
COMPLETE AND COMPILE AHEAD OF TIME
Prepare all the documents needed prior to confinement or as early as the day of confinement. It is easier to get the claim when it is included in your bill than reimbursing it after the confinement.
ASK YOUR DOCTOR
Ask you doctor, if he/she is accepting Philhealth. So that they will be informed that they have to deduct Philhealth from their charge.
KNOW YOUR BENEFITS

Submit all the documents and requirements prior to the check-out at the hospital; so that if the hospital has an additional requirements or things to be changed, you will still have time to take care of it. And with this manner, your check-out will be processed easily.
