Registration with PhilHealth
According to Ms. Chato Noche, Officer at the Contribution Section of the Quezon
Avenue Branch of PhilHealth, registration with PhilHealth is autonomous from registering
with SSS and that registration with both NGAs may be done simultaneously.
Procedures in registering with PhilHealth are as follows:
1. If employees are not yet members of PhilHealth, each should accomplish form
M1-A (Member Data Record - For Employed Sector) first. Employers must
accomplish forms ER1 (Employer Data Record) and ER2 (Report of Employee-
Members). All forms may be downloaded from the PhilHealth Website.
2. Submit all forms and other requirements (SEC and BIR Registration as well as
Copy of Business Permit) for processing at Membership Window. Employer shall
get the receiving copy of all the forms as proof of submission of all necessary
Ms. Noble mentioned that it takes 3 months before they could release the PhilHealth
Numbers to the employer and its employees. Although this may be the case, once the
employer has submitted all the necessary supporting documents and forms, they are
already considered members of PhilHealth and can enjoy its privileges 3 months after
(which they consider as the waiting period).
The procedure mentioned above is the common practice for all PhilHealth Branches.
For the cities covered by DB Subnational, there are seven (7) PhilHealth Branches
where the employer can register. Payment for PhilHealth Contribution may be done
directly at the PhilHealth Branches or accredited banks of PhilHealth (see next page for
complete list of banks).

Each branch may accept registration to PhilHealth regardless of the location of the
company. So there is no specific PhilHealth Branch servicing to specific cities.
