Employer share will be 9.5% (from 8.5%) while the employee share will still be 4.5%. The minimum and maximum salary credits to be used for computation will now be 4,000 and 30,000 (from 3,000 and 25,000).


In accordance with the Universal Health Care Act (Republic Act No. 11223), the PhilHealth contribution rate will now be 4.5% (from 4.0%) and the income ceiling will increase from 80,000 to 90,000.
