    1. Just registered for the new card. I'm an active member already.

      Just to let you know that it's 30 days and not 2 weeks waiting time. This is for Bayad Center. Not sure for SM.


    2. Congratulations, we do hope that you didn't encounter any problems in your registration. As per PhilHealth release it would take a minimum of 2 weeks waiting time. Thanks for the update.

    3. No problems with registration and I asked first before registering. 30 days is what they told me.

      Hope someone who registered via SM would share.

      How about you? It seems you haven't registered yet. Maybe you can register at SM so that we can find out.
