Bad news:-( Philhealth will hike up members contribution effective July 2012.
Voluntary members who use to pay Php 100 peso per month will now have to pay Php 200 a month. That is 100% increase!
Individually paying members who belong to the informal sector of the society and indigents, will be paying P2,400 annually starting July 1, 2012. This is intended to raise funds for the expansion of PhilHealth benefit packages.
But you have an option to advance the payment for your contribution up to (2) two years so you'll pay only Php 1,200 annually.
