Seafarer’s Philhealth Membership Type

As a seafarer, what type of Philhealth membership do you have? At first, I thought my membership is Overseas Worker type, but after reading articles at the website of Philhealth I learned that it’s the Employed type of membership. That’s the result of mostly relying to the staff of the manning agency and not doing my own homework.

You can check the different Philhealth memberships here.
