Beginning in June 2022, Filipinos may expect greater payments to the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth).
Following Malacaang’s directive, which reportedly took effect in January 2022, PhilHealth announced in a statement on Wednesday that the contribution rate will be increased to 4% for members earning P10,000 to P80,000 per month.
Premium rates should progressively climb under the Universal Health Care law, starting at 2.75% in 2019 and rising to 5% in 2024 and 2025. Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, President Rodrigo Duterte ordered PhilHealth to defer the tariff rise to 2021.
“PhilHealth assures all members that legislated contribution schedule will continue to provide all Filipinos with adequate financial protection against hospitalization costs,”PhilHealth
