Total health expenditure up by 9.4 percent in 2005

The total health expenditure in the country went up by 9.4 percent in 2005, from P165.3 billion in 2004 to P180.8 billion in 2005. This could largely be attributed to the increase in health benefit payments from social insurance, such as the Employees’ Compensation and the PhilHealth. Compared with the previous year, the growth in 2005 was slower than the 11.9 percent increase in 2004.

National Government posts highest growth on health expenditures... but households continue to bear most of the spending on health

The country’s total health expenditure increased by 13.2 % from PhP380.8 billion in 2010 to PhP431.0 billion in 2011. Private sources still account for majority of the total health spending with 63.1%, followed by the government share of 27.0%; social insurance and grants from the rest of the world account for the remaining 9.9%.
