    TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe Social Affairs Ministry re-checked the data of 96.7 million subsidy beneficiaries (PBI) of the Health Care and Social Security Agency (BPJS Kesehatan). Minister Tri Rismaharini or Risma announced there were 9.7 million problematic data that must be deleted, either permanently or temporarily.

    Risma found 5.8 million recipients under non-integrated social welfare data (DTKS) status that did not match the data from the Population and Civil Registration Service (Dukcapil).

    “They are not registered in the population data,” said Risma at a press conference in Jakarta, Monday, September 27.

    Based on the finding, Risma said the data were deleted and returned to the regional governments. If they have been synchronized with the Dukcapil data, the data can be submitted again as recipients.

    Additionally, Risma confirmed the ministry removed permanently the data of 433,000 recipients who had died, 2.58 million double data, and 833,000 data of people who have moved to class one or two. 

    Risma explained that in total, there were 9.7 million PBI recipients of BPJS Kesehatan were deleted. 

    The data change was noted in the Social Affairs Ministerial Decree No. 92/HUK/2021 on the determination of the 2021 PBI health insurance inked by Risma on September 15, 2021. In the decree, the total number of recipients of subsidized insurance reached 87 million.
