Paying PhilHealth Premiums using your Mobile Phone

Do you know that individuals already registered as PhilHealth Members can pay their contributions using the load in your mobile phone?

Individually paying members no longer need to wait or stand in line in accredited banks in order to pay your contributions. And guess what, you can now pay on a monthly basis through this service and even view your contributions on the PhilHealth's website!

The service PhilHealth payment thru text also known as Remittance By Air, is open to all Smart and Talk n Text prepaid subscribers. You would need to have at least Php115.00 load to use the service. The Php100.00 will be for the PhilHealth premium and the Php15.00 transaction fee.

One phone can be used for payment of more than one registered member. Hence you may even pay for your loved ones contributions using one smart or talk n text SIM, you only need enough load to do this. Another innovation from PhilHealth in making payments more accessible to the public.

To use the service, follow these steps:
  1. Type PHIC(space) PhilHealth Identification Number (PIN) and send to 7442. Ex. PHIC 123456789012
  2. Validate the text that you will receive and if correct type PHIC YES to 7442.
  3. Once you receive a health advisory and your reference number it means that payment has been sent.
The applicable month of payment will be based on the month you have used the service. So if you used the Remittance By Air this March, then you are paying for your March contribution. You may use the service anytime within April to pay for your April contribution and so on. You may find related info by clicking here.
