The higher PhilHealth contribution will be equally shared by employers and employees, those who used to pay a monthly contributions of P175 are now required to pay P200.

PhilHealth announced in October 2013 that IPMs with a monthly income of P25,000 and below will have to pay the new premium annual rate of P2,400.

Individual Paying Members (IPMs) can choose from three payment schemes: P600 per quarter, P1,200 semi-annually or P2,400 in annual premium. IPMs with an income of more than P25,000 shall continue to pay P3,600 in annual PhilHealth Premium.

The Philippine government depended the premium hike of PhilHealth and SSS through Communications Secretary Sonny Coloma who said that the increase has been the result of study.

He was quoted as saying “Iyan naman pong mga bagay na yan ay produkto ng pag-aaral, pag-aanalisa (analyze) at pagtataya, assessment on costs and benefits. Kasi po hindi naman maaaring libre iyong mga benepisyong yan. Kinakailangan po ay magkaroon ng pagtutuos kung sino ang mag-aasume ng burden,” Coloma said in a press briefing.

Secretary Coloma added further that “Kaya sa lahat naman po ng pagkakataon ay pinag-aaralan kung ano ang pinakamainam na balance between costs and benefits at tinitiyak naman na hindi magkakaroon ng masyadong mabigat na pasanin doon sa mga empleyado o sa mga beneficiaries.” he said.
