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.
The ID card is made from paper. You’ll be the one to attach 1 x 1 picture and laminate it.

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.
In this tutorial, I will guide you on how to apply for a TIN ID.
Tax Identification ID is considered a valid government ID. You can use it not only for BIR transactions but also in applying for other government IDs, opening a bank account, applying for a utility service and etc.
Here are the requirements to get a TIN ID card:
1. A valid ID (Company ID, UMID, Passport, NBI, etc.)
2. Copy of your TIN Number and Registration Date. If you don’t know your TIN yet, you may call the BIR Contact Center at 981-8888 (Weekdays 8AM to 5PM). The representative will just ask some personal information so he will be able to find your TIN (Tax Identification Number). Do not forget to ask the registration date as well.
Note: The steps below are based on the application process enforced by BIR branch 043A (East Pasig). The procedure might vary depending on the servicing branch. Remember, you can’t apply for a TIN ID on a different RDO (Revenue District Office) other than the RDO where your TIN is currently assigned. You may call BIR call center to know the current RDO handling your records. Check out this link for RDO addresses.
Step 1: Go to the Reception Area. Present your valid ID and get a number.
Step 2: Get a TIN ID application form from the personnel.
Step 3: Fill out the form in the waiting area and wait for your number to be called.
Step 4: Go to the assigned personnel who will assist you with your application. Do not forget to ask the release date of your ID card and get the claim stub.
Processing of TIN ID takes a week or might be longer depending on the servicing branch. Do not forget the stub when you claim your ID card.
