In line with the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation's (PhilHealth) thrust in providing better service and convenience to its members particularly in reporting premium contributions, PhilHealth launches a new version of its web-based reporting system - the PhilHealth Electronic Premium Reporting System Version 3 (EPRS v. 3.0).
EPRS v.3.0 retained all the user friendly features of its previous versions and has included the following additional modules:
- Softcopy RF-1 Uploading Module - this module allows the employer to upload its softcopy RF-1 in comma separated values (.csv) format.
- Adjustment Module - this module facilitates the processing of adjustment in a submitted report.
- NGA Premium Reporting Module - this module is designed for the use of the National Government Agencies (NGAs) in reporting premium contributions.
- Digitally signed Claim Form 1 (eCF-1) - with eCF-1, employees can now avail of their PhilHealth benefits anytime, any day. No more worries should hospital check-out day falls on a weekend or holiday where no employers can sign/issue a claim form. (A separate PhilHealth Circular will be issued for this purpose)
Consistent with PhilHealth Circular No. 45, s. 2012, employers who have not yet adopted the EPRS as their mode of preparation and submission of the Remittance Report are enjoined to register and activate their accounts for the access of the EPRS through filing-out the Electronic PhilHealth Online Access Form (ePOAF) via PhilHealth website: www.philhealth.gov.ph/online_services. For those who could not register online and needs further assistance, the registrant must manually fill-out the PhilHealth Online Access Form (POAF) and submit at the nearest PhilHealth Office.
Other issuances inconsistent with the abovementioned provisions are hereby repealed and/or modified. This Circular will take effect on December 16, 2012 and upon publication in a newspaper of general publication. (philhealth.gov.ph)
