The Philippine Health Insurance or ‘PhilHealth’, as what it is known to many Filipinos is a national health insurance program of the Philippine government.
Once registered as a member, you’ll be assigned a Personal Identification Number (PIN).
You then use this PIN to pay the required membership contributions. Obviously, if you used an incorrect PIN when paying your contribution, another PhilHealth member may benefit from your hard-earned money.
As what is posted on its website, the agency reminds us,
“Siguraduhin tama ang iyong PIN upang hindi maitala sa ibang miyembro ang iyong hulog.”
Recently, we received a lot of questions about how to recover forgotten/lost PIN.
If you happen to have the same concern, you can recover your PIN by following some easy steps detailed on this other blog post.
Moving on, you can check your latest date of payment, and the validity of your health insurance through the Member Data Record (MDR).
Take note that in times of confinement, some hospitals may still require you to provide a hard copy of MDR for your expenses to be covered. These hospitals most likely don’t have access to PhilHealth’s ‘My PhilHealth Portal’ facility.
Nevertheless, you can always secure a personal copy of your MDR. Read on, we will teach you how.
How to get MDR
There are two ways to get an updated copy of MDR.
1.) Get a copy from any PhilHealth office near you
