The new PhilHealth ID Card or the so called new I-PHILHEALTHY Card form Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) will ensure adequate and affordable Social Health Insurance Coverage for all Filipinos. The new PhilHealth iPhilHealthy ID Card is a reward and privilege card to be given to all existing and future active PhilHealth members. The new PhilHealth ID Card is an example of a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) concept.

  • Discounts on Various Drugstores (Watson’s & Rose Pharmacy).
  • Discounts on Various Generic Drugs.
  • Discounts on Optical Eyewear.
  • Discounted Rate on Hemodialysis.
  • Discount on Drug Testing Upon Renewal of Driver’s License.
  • Discounts on Different Types of Vaccines.
  • Discounts and privileges will expand as PhilHealth continues to partner  with other private companies.
The new Philhealth card is more than just a discount card. Since it can also store pertinent cardholder information such as the Member Data Record (MDR). Philhealth’s next phase of implementation is to install terminals at accredited Philhealth hospitals so that a member can just “swipe” the new Philhealth card to generate his/her MDR, which is necessary in settling a hospital bill after confinement.
