Indonesia’s national health insurance scheme, Jaminan Kesehatan Nasional or JKN, is one of the world’s largest and most ambitious, providing coverage for over 220 million people (more than 80% of the country’s population). But sustainably scaling JKN to reach universal coverage will require tradeoffs in policy choices. This report—part of a comprehensive assessment of JKN conducted by HP+ and the National Team for the Acceleration of Poverty Reduction—provides an analysis of JKN’s evolving financial position, the antecedents of its design, key arrangements affecting the scheme’s financial management, critical trends in revenue and expenditure affecting its future financial status, and potential policy actions to improve its future financial sustainability. Read the full analysis for an in-depth look at the policy choices Indonesia will need to grapple with along with our recommendations for how the country can use evidence to inform key policy changes to promote JKN’s financial sustainability. In addition to the report below, a summary brief in English and Indonesian are also available.
