Private Hospitals Complain About Late BPJS Health Claim

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Private hospitals have recently faced late claim payment from the National Health Insurance System (BPJS Kesehatan). It made the private hospitals to cover the costs until it is disbursed by the government. Pharmaceutical companies are also unwilling to supply drugs if it is not distributed immediately.

Deputy of the Indonesian Private Hospital Association (ARSSI) Noor Arida Sofiana said the impact of late drugs payment will disturb the hospitals financial and it has the potential to make the service quality declines.

Arida explained, the current process of claim verification from BPJS Kesehatan is long enough, it takes two to three months. Few hospitals are questioning the cost of hospital fees.

In addition, she asks the government not to set the unit price of treatment based on hospital class, but in accordance with its service competence. According to Arida, private hospitals must use the cost without government subsidies.

ARSSI asks the government to resolve the problem. On the other hand, private hospitals are increasingly cooperating with the government in implementing the JKN system. The program, according to Arida, is also very good and useful because it will increase the number of participants.

Previously, the Director of BPJS Kesehatan Fachmi Idris said the claim payment to the hospital is not per month, but several months at a time. Especially for health facility level I, claim payment made routine at the beginning of the month. He mentioned the unused budget was solely for incentives for level I health service for a campaign of healthy life.
