IVRS on the other hand can be utilized using the landline number (02) 441-7442 available to members 24/7 except during system upgrade or routine maintenance of the system.

Through IVRS, members may ask about their PhilHealth Identification Number (PIN), status of payment and benefits, online services e.g. E-registration, Health Care Institution Portal, Electronic Premium Remittance System and other membership concerns.

Philhealth’s partnership with PAPO on the other hand is meant to gather patients’ commonly asked questions for PhilHealth to answer and record for the IVRS.

While partnership with the academe is for PhilHealth to promote advocacy about the National Health Insurance Program among students through music, arts and physical education (MAPE) classes.(hanah g. naanep, PRO III)
