Walter R. Bacareza, PhilHealth regional vice president for Eastern Visayas, said the move is in preparation for the phasing out of all other existing reporting schemes of PhilHealth remittances. Bacareza said employers should coordinate with the nearest PhilHealth Office regarding orientation, training, and use of the system. Bacareza said that Section 6, Rule 1, Title III of the Implementing Rules and Regulations of the National Health Insurance Program mandates the establishment of an efficient premium collection mechanism and the maintenance of an updated database by PhilHealth. PhilHealth, through Circular 30 series of 2010 and dated September 2010, adopted the EPRS, a Web-based application by employers in the preparation of their monthly PhilHealth remittance reports. Meanwhile, a separate PhilHealth circular requires all employers with more than 10 employees to adopt and use the EPRS as the mode of preparation and submission/transmission of the Employer Remittance Report. The online system has been updated with the EPRS Version 2.1, which was made available for users last October 1, 2012. The updated version has new features such as the Preliminary Employees Premium Remittance List (PEPRL) which allows the employer to verify the correctness of the employee contributions list for the current month. Another is the Statement of Premium Account (SPA) where employers can generate a statement of total premium payable to PhilHealth which will be used as the basis for voucher and check preparation. The required PhilHealth Premium Payment Slip (PPPS) is also included in the SPA. Thus, there is no more need for separate payment form to fill out. Finally, EPRS can now accept the posting of premium contribution remitted through the Accredited Collection Agents (ACAs). — Erlinda Olivia P. Tiu, PIA 8 ]]>
