PIA Press Release

Philhealth now requires pin in claiming benefits

by MA Loterte

Legazpi City (5 October) -- The Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) will be implementing the "No PhilHealth Identification Number (PIN) – No Claim" policy starting next year, according to Orlando Iņigo, Jr., PhilHealth Bicol regional vice president.

Iņigo said the new policy will be carried out in order to update its membership and contributions database as well as ensure the delivery of quality health care services to all its members.

He averred that with this new policy, the number of unregistered members, particularly among the employed sectors, will be obliged to register with the agency that will enable them to get their PIN.

He stressed the unique identification number of every member will be required in availing PhilHealth benefits.

Iņigo stated that all employers are enjoined to update their employers' member records from July 15 to December 30, 2009 pursuant to Rule III Section 18 of the Revised Implementing Rules and Regulations of Republic Act 7875 as amended which states that:

"All government and private employers are required to register their employees with the Corporation and shall be issued a permanent and unique PhilHealth Identification Number (PIN). It is likewise the obligation of the employer to report to the Corporation its newly-hired employees within 30 calendar days from assumption to office."

"Further, the employer has the obligation to give notice to the Corporation of an employee's separation within 30 calendar days from separation."

He also encouraged employed members to coordinate with their respective employers for the updating of their membership records with the agency.

He said that only properly accomplished Employer's Remittance Reports (RF1) will be accepted for posting of premium contributions to avoid inconsistency of information against the PhilHealth membership database.
