Preparing for PhilHealth Sabado 2 set on June 25, 2011

The Nationwide PhilHealth Registration Day (NPRD) or what is commonly known as "PhilHealth Sabado, Magseguro, Magparehistro" is a nationwide activity conducted by PhilHealth to fast-track the registration/enrollment under the National Health Insurance Program (NHIP). This is a continuing advocacy program which aims to provide an easier method for non-members of the NHIP to register and pay the one quarter premium contribution by putting up various registration sites aside from PhilHealth Offices that may be open to new registrants or existing members that will be updating their membership record.

With the success of the PhilHealth Sabado conducted last October 2, 2010, PhilHealth shall be conducting the same activity this coming June 25, 2011. If you are planning to join the event, we suggest you to:
  1. Accomplish or fill-out the PhilHealth Membership Registration Form (PMRF) for new registrants and those updating their membership record. The PMRF can be downloaded here. Make sure that you entered your current and complete address including the name of your barangay;
  2. Prepare the necessary supporting documents that you would need to attach to the PMRF such as birth certificates of you and your dependents, marriage certificate (if married), adoption papers of your parent/child (if applicable), annulment/separation papers (if applicable) and others. You may click here to know who you can declare as dependents;
  3. Prepare the premium amount equivalent to a quarter payment for new registrants. You will only be given a PhilHealth ID Card once payment of at least a quarter is made. If you do not pay the premium, you will only be provided a copy of your PhilHealth Identification Number (PIN);
  4. For requests on printing of PhilHealth ID Card / Member Data Record (MDR) please prepare the documentary requirements. For PhilHealth ID Card requests requirements are discussed in this post. For MDR requests, you might be asked to bring with you a request letter, photocopy of two (2) valid ID Cards;
  5. Bring any valid ID Card to be presented during registration/updating.
Depending on the number of registrants and the connectivity of the registration site, there may be cases when your registration forms and attachments will only be received and your Member Data Record (MDR), Open Category Slips or PhilHealth ID Card will be mailed to the address you have provided after the backroom processing of your registration form. This will usually be done by PhilHealth to manage the number of transactions and to maintian a speedy process. Hence, you may take note of the date when the registration form is received and contact the Call Center to follow-up on your registration.
