Advisory ID# 12
MMG ADVISORY as of 16-MAR-2018


For all PEERs, please be reminded of the following:

1. Before generating the SPA, update the monthly basic salary and status of employees such as newly-hired, no earnings and separated for the applicable month. Generate the PEPRL and review.
2. Upon finalization of the SPA, prepare payment which should equal the TOTAL AMOUNT DUE. No splitting of payments -- separate payments for premium and penalty IS NOT ALLOWED. Payments which do not equal the total amount due in the SPA will result to a "for reconciliation" status. 
3. The SPA should be presented to the ACA upon payment. There should only be one official receipt issued per SPA. 
4. Paid SPAs should not be deleted. Payment details should be posted immediately.
5. Always be diligent in updating and posting your reports. All submissions are considered final.

For more convenient payment options, you may enroll in the online EPRS facilities of selected ACAs. Please contact your respective PAIMS for additional details.

Thank you!

MMG ADVISORY as of 02-FEB-2018

Application of PhilHealth Circular No. 2017-0021 to All Admissions Starting October 1, 2018

To give PhilHealth members ample time to pay their premium contributions and comply with the prescribed sufficient regularity of payment prior to the first day of confinement, PhilHealth Circular No. 2017 - 021 shall be applied to all admissions starting October 1, 2018. 

Hence, the rule on three (3) months contributions within the immediate six (6) months prior to the first day of confinement (3/6) shall be required for benefit availment covering the period January 1, 2018 to September 30, 2018.
All members admitted January 1, 2018 onwards who were unable to avail themselves of benefits due to lacking sufficient regularity may file claims directly with PhilHealth.

Temporary Use of Unamended PhilHealth Claims Form 1 and Claim Signature Form

PhilHealth Circular 21, s.2017 entitled Application of Sufficient Regularity of Payment of Premium Contributions to the Required Qualifying Contributions for Eligibility to PhilHealth Benefits, defines “sufficient regularity” as the premium payment of “...six (6) months of contributions preceding the three (3) months qualifying contributions within the twelve (12) month period prior to the first day of confinement...”

Relative to this, to ensure continuous access to PhilHealth benefits, Health Care Institutions may still use the current PhilHealth Claim Signature Form and PhilHealth Claim Form 1, until the said forms’ parts for “Employer’s Certification” have been officially amended to read as follows:

“This is to certify that all monthly premium contributions for and in behalf of the member, while employed in this company, including the applicable three (3) monthly premium contributions within the past six (6) months prior to the first day of this confinement, have been deducted / collected and remitted to PhilHealth with sufficient regularity (when applicable), and that the information supplied by the member or his / her representative on Part I are consistent with our available records.” 

Further, employers who affix their signatures on the unamended PhilHealth Claim Signature Form and Claim Form I are deemed to have certified their compliance to the sufficient regularity rule.
