February 1, 2015: PhilHealth is now issuing new identification cards made of PVC. I have not submitted an application yet because I need to clarify the procedure first. As per the rep I have talked with, it costs ₱90.00, and I should coordinate with our company’s HR. I’ll be updating this post once I got mine.

  1. I am a new applicant. Can I use my PhilHealth card immediately after applying?

  2. How to apply for a PhilHealth card (the ATM type PhilHealth ID)?. What are the requirements and how long will it take to get it?

  3. Just to clarify, they will ask only one valid ID right? ‘Coz when I asked them if I can get another card because my PhilHealth ID was lost, they’ve given me requirements before I can get a new one and with those requirements, it includes 2 valid IDs and I was frustrated because that is the reason why I needed to get another card becauseI only have one valid ID. (Maybe they have misheard me or something and thought I needed to get a whole new PhilHealth number?, Or is it because I already got one and since it was lost, I needed to submit additional requirements?). I’m confused. Can you guys help me with this?

  4. Is there any possible way I can retrieve my lost PhilHealth ID Number?

  5. How can I get PhilHealth ID if ever I don’t have the required ID?
