This report presents a summary of the methods, results, and implications of an HP+ exercise to model the integration of private midwives into Indonesia’s national health insurance scheme. Modeled results affirm some of the expected benefits of private sector participation in provider networks under government-supported health insurance schemes. To augment potential financial and health benefits, a coordinated reproductive, maternal, and child health strategy is required. Furthermore, to advance equity, investments should be directed toward localities with the highest unmet needs.
