Pay Philhealth Insurance Premiums via Mobile

by Ka Edong on January 6, 2010

I have previously written about mobile and online services of Phihealth.

There was the Philhealth mobile service that let’s you access your Philhealth number and other details. Read my Philhealth article on Pinoytechblog. And I also wrote on eOFW.net about healthcare through Philhealth online .

Thus, it’s a pleasant addition to Philhealth’s e-government services to see that Philhealth individually-paying members can now make Philhealth payments using their mobile phone and their airtime load.

Philhealth Remittance-by-Air

Dubbed “Remittance-by-Air”, members can send their P100 monthly contribution from the convenience of their own home.

To complete a transaction, members must ensure that the mobile phone they are using has an existing credit of at least P115.

Members have to type PHICPhilhealth identification number (PIN) [Ex. PHIC 120123456789] and send it to 7442.

The system will send back the PIN with the corresponding name of the member for confirmation. If the name is correct, the member will be required to reply PHICYES to 7442.

Upon completion of the transaction, the amount of P115 will be deducted from the member’s phone load. P100 of the total amount will cover the premium for one month, while the remaining P15 will pay for transaction fee.

The member will then receive a thank you note and the reference number as proof of payment. This service is available for Smart and Talk N Text subscribers.

What’s interesting is that even OFWs will be able to avail of this service using a mobile phone with roaming service.
