UPDATED (Philhealth Contribution Table) – January 1, 2012:
Philhealth ensures sustainable, affordable and progressive social health insurance, influencing the delivery of accessible quality health care for all Filipinos by providing a unified benefit package for all its members for in-patient hospital care and out-patient care. The government mandates contribution amount depending on salary bracket, and this contribution amount is shared by Employee and Employer equally.
In line with this, please be informed that Philhealth has implemented Philhealth Premium Contribution increases effective January 2013 for employees earning P31, 000 and higher monthly salary. This increase in Philhealth Contribution will apply to both employer and employee contributions.
You may refer to the table below for the premium contribution schedule. Note that the contribution amount indicated below represents the Employee contribution only. Employer contribution is on top of the amount indicated, and will be equivalent to the Employee contribution.
Download the Latest PhilHealth Premium Contribution Schedule / Table 2012 here. Being an Employee-Member of PhilHealth, your premium is 1.25% of your Salary Base where your Monthly Salary Range is included. It is only the 50% of the total contribution since your Employer is shouldering the other half as a “partner” to make sure that you are in good health and fit to work.
