Bpjs insurance sharing experiences


Our national long-term development plan (RPJMN) targets 98 percent of health service coverage for our population said BPJS Kesehatan President Director Ali Ghufron in a written statement received in Jakarta, Friday.

This was conveyed by Ghufron when representing Indonesia in a webinar session on India's universal health coverage roadmap organized by the National Health Authority of India, Thursday (23/9).

Enrollment continues to increase faster than any other country, with a similar health insurance system in place, he points out. Aside from being the fourth most populous country, Indonesia's population spread across thousands of islands in Indonesia adds to the complexity of achieving complete UHC coverage, said Ghufron. Nevertheless, we can see the finish line in achieving our target. We still need to work together with the government, medical officers, health service providers, and residents to expand coverage said the President Director.

Universality, the first value, essentially mandates BPJS Health to achieve complete coverage for the benefit of the Indonesian population. BPJS Kesehatan has also succeeded in increasing the second value, access. Related news: Health minister says hospitals are not trying to profit from the pandemic.

The third value is quality health services. If we look at our program satisfaction index, we see that the index continues to increase. In 2014, we recorded our satisfaction index of 78.6 percent, while in 2020, we have increased the index to 81.5 percent," he informs. Based on data from the University of Indonesia's Institute for Economic and Social Research (LPEM FEB UI), the JKN-KIS program prevented 8.1 million people from the grip of poverty and secured 1.6 million poor people from further poverty due to health problems. "We admit that improvements to the JKN-KIS system must continue, but we believe that program implementation is on the right track to achieve complete universal health coverage in Indonesia," he added.
