Beginning October 5, paying PhilHealth premiums is now more convenient with the recent tie-up between PhilHealth and the SM Department Store. Shoppers can now register, pay premiums and get PHIC Cards at SM Business Centers which now accept payments from Phil Health individual, corporate and government sector members.
Individual paying members who are self-employed, overseas Filipino workers and self-practicing professionals can now remit their quarterly, semi-annual and annual premiums when they shop at SM. Government and private companies can also pay the monthly premiums of their employees, while local government units and private individuals who joined PhilHealth's sponsored programs can also pay the annual premiums of their sponsored members at the Business Center.
Over the past few years, the SM Business Center has become a one-stop shop for government services offered by agencies like the National Statistics Office, Social Security System and Pag-IBIG. The addition of the Phil Health service is another step in bringing these services closer to SM shoppers. SM Business Center is located at the Ground Floor of SM Department Store at SM City Davao.
