Visited a few government offices to compile requirements for employment and was amazed how early SSS closed its doors to customers. I arrived at 2:00 o'clock in the afternoon. Yes it's late, but I believe it is too early to refuse service. Upon arrival, I immediately noticed the note "Ubos na ang number sa pila. Bukas po ulit."

Before giving birth to UH-1H, my husband and I were informed that we needed to prepare my PhilHealth MDR (Member Data Record) as it is required by the hospital. I did attach my MDR on my Mommy Book but did not realize it was bearing my maiden name - Moncano. The same was discovered only when dokie already gave the green light for us to be discharged from the hospital. According to the hospital policy, a patient should not be allowed to go home, not until he provides an updated MDR. In my case, I needed to provide one with an updated last name and civil status. It was, at that point, a little impossible as I gave birth in Cebu City and my previous employer is located in Lipa City. It would take too much time and effort to accomplish the same. The resident PhilHealth personnel then advised my husband to declare me as his dependent and use his MDR instead. My husband sorted it out for a couple of days and so I lost my personal MDR PIN/PhilHealth record.
Now that I am working again, the company required me to secure my own MDR. Again. I have mentioned on my previous post NSO Experience: Obtaining Marriage and Live Birth Certificate that I hate doing transactions with the government. Then I thought of researching the process and requirements online before even trying to brave the long lines and extreme hassle of visiting their office. But lo and behold! Found out that getting one is just as easy as signing up for facebook!
Yes, you can now say goodbye to endless cursing on the forever manual system of government offices! No need to gas up! Just visit the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation and prepare a scanned copy of your pertinent docs to complete the registration. Below is the step by step process:
