The Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) announced Thursday it is extending its deadline for employers to remit their employees’ contributions for the month of January.
The deadline was extended to February 22, 2021 from the mandatory payment schedule of February 1, 2021 for payments covering January 2021.
“The extension of deadline is in view of the technical issues in the Electronic Premium Remittance System (EPRS) Online Payment Module since February 11, 2021 which prevented employers from generating their Statement of Premium Accounts or billing statements,” the state health insurer said.
PhilHealth said the extension is applicable to all employers in the private and government sectors nationwide.
“Employers needing further assistance may contact the nearest Local Health Insurance Office or their respective PhilHealth Accounts Management Specialists,” it said.—LDF, GMA News
