Wonderful news to our kababayans in Japan! Smiles Mobile Remittance has made it easier and more convenient for you to pay your PhilHealth membership and contributions in the Philippines.

If you are unfamiliar with the benefits of having a PhilHealth membership, follow this article as we will provide you with the essential information about its benefits and advantages.

What is PhilHealth?

PhilHealth is known as the Philippine Health Insurance Program. Its mandate is to provide national health insurance coverage and ensure affordable, acceptable, available and accessible healthcare services for all Filipinos.

Filipinos are able to take advantage of PhilHealth’s benefits through contributions, which can be obtained directly from the employers and employees or voluntary contributions from Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW).

How much is the monthly contribution for PhilHealth?

The PhilHealth contribution rate has jumped from 4 percent to 5 percent in 2024. This means that employed individuals, OFW and all Filipinos, aged 21 years old and above, have to pay 5 percent of their monthly salary. Take a look below to see an example:

Monthly income₱70,000
PhilHealth contribution rate5%
Calculation₱70,000 x 5%
(Monthly income x Contribution rate)
Monthly contribution amount₱3,500

Normally, if you are working in the Philippines, the monthly contribution is divided between you and the employer. However, if you are an OFW, you will have to shoulder the whole payment amount.
