No OEC will be provided if OFWs haven’t paid 3% PhilHealth contribution


All overseas Filipino workers are now required to pay their missed PhilHealth dues before securing the Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC).

Citing the Universal Healthcare Law, all OFWs headed to and leaving from the Philippines are required to pay for their PhilHealth premiums before the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) released OEC, a documen required for balik manggagawa.

In a circular posted by PhilHealth on Facebook, payments should be made every three months, six months or every year.

OFWs can expect to pay ranging from AED 261 to as high as AED 1,569 depending on their monthly salaries.
