PhilHealth contribution(s) is calculated based on the on the official table released by PhilHealth. We've provided some example calculations that you may refer to for further understanding.

Note: The HReasily system automatically calculates the contribution(s).

[Example 1]

Employee basic salary is P10,000

  • Based on the table of Philhealth contributions employee will pay: P137.50

  • Based on the table of Philhealth contributions employer will pay: P137.50

  • Total Philhealth contribution remitted to employee: P275.00

[Example 2]

Employee basic salary is P20,000

  • Based on the table of Philhealth contributions employee will pay: P275

  • Based on the table of Philhealth contributions employer will pay: P275

  • Total Philhealth contribution remitted to employee: P550

Here's the computation:

20,000 x 2.75% = 550 Monthly Premium
550 / 2 = 275
275 - Employee Share
275 - Employer Share

Note: PhilHealth rate for 2021 will remain to use 3% instead of 3.5%
