PhilHealth ID Card Application

PhilHealth ID card is one of the government-issued IDs that you can get fast if you are in need of valid IDs. You can use it to apply for utility services, open a bank account, apply for other government IDs and etc.


To apply for a PhilHealth ID card, you only need to bring with you a valid ID. For example, Company ID, UMID, TIN, and etc.


Before you go to any PhilHealth office, it is recommended to call their contact center first to confirm if the branch processes ID cards. Their hotline number is 441-7444.

The customer service hotline is open from 9 AM to 5 PM (Weekdays). You may call them as well to verify your number if your previous or current employer didn’t give you a copy yet.

You can drop by to the PhilHealth San Miguel Avenue, Ortigas Branch if you are within Metro Manila or near Pasig city. You can apply for an ID card there and get it within the same day. The office is in the DAP Building near Shangri-La and Megamall. Just approach the personnel in the reception area and ask where to fall in line for the ID card. Click here for the location map.

You can go to any servicing branch as well to register as a new member and apply for an ID card at the same time.

Your PhilHealth number is permanent like your TIN (Tax Identification Number). In case you lost your ID, you can apply for a replacement for free without the need to apply for a new number.
