How to Deactivate your Philhealth Membership

Some of you might be wondering if it is possible to deactivate or cancel your Philhealth membership. If you ever get into a situation wherein your husband or your wife stops working and become unemployed, you can give them the same benefits that the health insurance offer.

What you have to do is to have your husband or your wife deactivate their membership with Philhealth. After the membership has been deactivated or canceled, you then have to enlist them as your dependent. Here’s how.

1. The first thing you have to do is to write a letter addressed to Philhealth requesting a deactivation of your membership. A sample of request of deactivation can be found below.

Philippine Health Insurance Corporation
Branch Address
Date

I, state your name, include your Philhealth identification number, would like to request for deactivation of my membership. Include the reason why.

Sincerely,
Your Name



If you do not want to write your own letter of deactivation, you can go to the nearest Philhealth branch and ask for a deactivation form, which is readily available at the office.

2. Next step would be for the active member to enlist the new dependent. Simply fill out the Philhealth Registration Membership Form. This form can be downloaded here. Once the form had been completely filled out, submit it together with the Letter of Deactivation, 2 Valid IDs, and a copy of Marriage Certificate to the branch. For employees, you can submit the requirements to your HR personnel.

3. After submission, you will be given your Member Data Record (MDR), updated with the new dependent.



It is quite simple. The new dependent can now enjoy the benefits without having to remit contributions. For more information, you can visit the official website.

    1. Your contributions are still with the government agency but if your membership is inactive, you won't be able to avail the benefits when the need arises. If you wish to reactivate your membership, you may do so by visiting the nearest Philhealth Regional Office.

      You can also send your inquiries to actioncenter@philhealth.gov.ph. We are not certain though how long it takes for them to respond.

      For more information, visit Philhealth's official website.

    1. To be eligible to avail of your PhilHealth benefits when hospitalized, the following conditions must be met:

      Payment of at least 3 months’ worth of premiums within the immediate 6 months of confinement. For pregnancies, availment of the newborn care package, dialysis, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and selected surgical procedures, 9 months’ worth of contributions in the last 12 months is needed.
      Confinement in an accredited hospital for 24 hours due to illness or disease requiring hospitalization. Attending physician(s) must also be PhilHealth accredited.
      Claim is within the 45 days allowance for room and board.

      You’ll also need to submit the following documents before being discharged from the hospital for automatic deduction:

      A Clear, Updated copy of your Member Data Record (MDR). If you are dependent, make sure that you are listed in the MDR.
      An original copy of PhilHealth Claim Form 4, which you can get at Philhealth, the hospital or your employer. Submit the original copy signed by your employer.
      Receipt of Premium payments. Employees only need to submit the Certificate of Premium Payments with OR numbers.
      Your PhilHealth ID and a valid ID.

  3. How can I download request for deactivation form

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There is no deactivation form that is available for download. You can write your own letter of deactivation or you can go to the nearest Philhealth branch and ask for a deactivation form, which, in reality, is not really a form but more like a letter of consent that you want to deactivate your membership.

  4. Hi,

    Thank you very much for this very informative blog of yours. I too is looking for the so-called Deactivation form (as per email response of the Philhealth Insurance but can't find any in their website. Reading this article of yours, at least saves me the time of going to the Philhealth office just to get their Deactivation form letter. So, I'll make my own then.

    More power to your blog!

  7. Can you refund the previous contributions if you deactivate your Philhealth account?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Unfortunately, Philhealth does not refund contributions. If, by mistake, you paid your contributions twice (double contribution), your payment will be carried over to next month. You may visit the nearest PhilHealth Regional Office (PRO) or Local Health Insurance Office (LHIO) in your locality.

    1. Yes, it can be accomplished in one day. Simply submit your request for deactivation to PhilHealth.

      To be added as your wife's dependent, your wife must do the following:

      Download PhilHealth Member Registration Form or (PMRF)
      Tick FOR UPDATING on the upper right-hand corner of the PMRF.
      Fill out PMRF as appropriate.
      Submit properly filled out PMRF to the nearest PhilHealth Office.

  15. Hi, I'm recently married and instead of accomplishing the PMRF to update my details I would like to deactivate my account in PhilHealth since I'm currently unemployed, and also, would like to be added in my husband declaration of dependent.

    In writing the Authorization Letter, should I use my current Married name? or should I use my Maiden Name that is the one listed on their system.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You need to first deactivate your Philhealth account. In writing the authorization letter, you should use the name on file so if you are still using your maiden name, you have to use that one.

      Then, your husband can add you as a dependent after deactivation.
