Her statement in Jakarta, Sunday (29/7), related to the regulation of BPJS Health Director's regulation on health service which is no longer borne by BPJS Health, namely healthy delivery, cataract and physiotherapy.

Looking at the three health care director regulations that have implications for the abolition of the National Health Insurance (JKN) benefit, for healthy maternity mothers, cataracts and physiotherapy services as well as the community's reaction to the policy, I request that the three Regulations of the Director of Health Services BPJS Health Security be suspended implementation, he explained.

The rules should be socialized down. "People under the anxiety and restless over the three regulations directed by BPJS," he said.

The central government can make a significant breakthrough on the financial burden of BPJS Health. One way that can be done such as the elaboration BPJS Health program with local governments in practice also apply health programs for local residents.
