PhilHealth Extends Enrolment to Filipinos with Dual Citizenship

Filipinos with dual citizenship (FDCs) may now enroll with PhilHealth as stated in Circular 2017-004.

Those with dual citizenship are Filipinos who are also citizens of other countries and have retained or reacquired their citizenship by virtue of RA 9225.

Primary documents required for enrolment are the PhilHealth Member Registration Form (PMRF) and Certificate of Re-acquisition / Retention of Philippine Citizenship (CRCP) or Identification Certificate (IC) issued by the Philippine Embassy or Philippine Consulate abroad or by the Bureau of Immigration.

FDCs requiring their children below 21 years old, unmarried and not gainfully employed as dependents are required to submit CRCP or IC.

For children 21 years old and above who are totally dependent from their parents due to congenital or physical disability must have the same CRCP or IC and medical certificate.

Foreign spouses cannot be declared as dependents.

Filipino parents with disability can be their dependents as long as the declarants could submit their marriage contract and photocopy of their birth certificates and medical certificates for validation, respectively.

Premium contribution requirement shall be 2,400 to be paid per year only.

The principal member and all of his qualified dependents are entitled to avail of in-patient benefits, special benefits and Z packages.

They are also eligible to reimburse confinements abroad equivalent to the full case rate amount in local rate. (hanah g. naanep, PRO III)
