RESPONDING to the call of President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. to digitalize access and availment of services of government agencies, Philhealth enlisted in the eGovPH Super App platform.  

“PhilHealth’s inclusion in the eGovPH Super App is integral to the agency’s digital transformation journey. This is definitely one of our urgent priorities as we continuously improve our services and make them within reach by more and more Filipinos who are gravitating towards online transactions,” PhilHealth president and chief executive officer Emmanuel Ledesma Jr. said.

To do this, Philhealth partnered with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT).

Ledesma noted that the move would  ensure “hassle-free and accessible health insurance information anytime and anywhere for all its members here and abroad,”

The eGovPH or e-Government Philippines is a mobile application that simplifies transactions between the government and the people.

It integrates all other apps used by different government agencies, such as PhilHealth, the Social Security System, the Government Service Insurance System, the Pag-IBIG, and local government units, among others.  

Through this mobile app, the PhilHealth Member Portal can now be readily accessed with faster loading of contents specifically designed for mobile phones.

 To be able to access information through the eGovPH Super App, PhilHealth members are advised to follow three simple steps:  Download the eGovPH mobile app via Google Play Store or App Store for free; Sign-up and provide personal details such as full name, birth date, complete address, mobile number and email address. A One-Time Password (OTP) code will be sent to the contact number for verification. 

The last step is the verification of account through the email address used in the registration. Verified accounts can log-in anytime using the registered mobile number.  

Among the basic functionalities featured in the app are user-friendly interface and an automated button that will link up users to government sites like PhilHealth, where members can have access to their membership profile, contribution history, and registered Konsulta provider. 

More PhilHealth services are due for integration with eGovPH Super App such as online registration and online amendment, registration with a Konsulta Package Provider of choice, and the use of QR code to facilitate verification, among others. 

By accessing PhilHealth information through the eGovPH Super App, millions of Filipinos are more empowered, thereby making equitable access to quality and affordable health care services a reality, the agency said.
