I Can't Be a Dependent of My Husband Because I'm a Philhealth Member. Is this True?


Is it true that I cannot be a dependent of my husband under Philhealth because I'm a Philhealth member?

If you are Employed, and therefore an active Philhealth member, you cannot be a dependent of your husband under Philhealth.

You cannot be a Philhealth  member and at the same time a Dependent.

BUT if you became Unemployed and it seems you will be Unemployed for many months or years, you can CANCEL your Philhealth membership and 
ask your husband to register you as his DEPENDENT: 

1.  Write a letter to Philhealth asking Philhealth:
       .  to cancel your Philhealth membership because you have been Unemployed and
       .  to register you as Dependent of your husband.

       The letter can be handwritten or printed; can be in Tagalog or English.    

2.  Ask your husband to go to Philhealth with your letter, his ID and your marriage certificate (xerox and original copies).
      .  Fill up Member Data Form (Check "For Updating")
      .  Write you as Dependent
      .  Get updated MDR


  1. paano kung nsa abroad ung husband ano po ang gagawin

  2. vikz, husband abroad 5/21/16
    What if my husband is abroad? What should I do?
    Ask your husband to email you an authorization letter and attach a scan or photo of his ID. Have these printed at an Internet cafe. Then go to any Philhealth branch with your ID, marriage certificate (orig and xerox) plus your authorization letter, your husband's ID and your letter asking Philhealth to cancel your membership because you're already unemployed. Fill up the Philhealth registration form. Remember to write your name as dependent. Check FOR UPDATING. Submit docs. Get the updated MDR.
    Authorization letter could be something like: I authorize my wife to update my Philhealth records and register my wife as my dependent.
