Ayaw magpa-deduct ng PhilHealth contribution


ISA akong may-ari ng maliit na kumpanya. May isa akong trabahador na ayaw magpakaltas ng PhilHealth at iba pa. Papaano po iyon? Pipirma na lang daw siya ng waiver na ayaw niyang magpa-deduct. Pwede po ba yon? Ano po ang dapat kong gawin? Salamat po,

REPLY: Greetings from Team PhilHealth!

All members in the Formal Economy (employed) are those with formal contracts, employee-employer relationship and fixed terms of employment including workers in the government and private sector, meaning if you are still connected to the company/employer, PhilHealth deduction is mandatory.

Members in the formal economy shall continue paying the monthly contributions to be shared equally by the employer and employee at a prescribed rate set by the Corporation not exceeding five percent (5%) of their respective basic monthly salaries.

The member’s monthly contribution shall be deducted and withheld automatically by the employer from the former’s salary, wage or earnings. The premium contributed shall be divided equally between the employer and the employed. The employer’s counterpart shall not, in any manner be charged to the employee.

For more concerns and other queries you may e-mail us again or call our action center hotline at 441-7442.
