  • Depends on the definition:

  • WHO: stewardship, provision, resources generation, etc

  • Kovner: the role of government in: regulation, provision of services, and financing the system

  • Harvard and WBI: use the “knobs” metaphora

The program in 2005 l.jpg

The program in 2005

  • Ministry of Health introduced Askeskin (Health Insurance for the Poor)

  • The budget was calculated based on 5 thousand rupiah per month per individu.

    (commercial health insurance: from 25.000 - 250.000, to US dollar for overseas scheme)

  • There was a poor registration system for poor people at the beginning of the program


The contract to pt askes indonesia 2005 2007 l.jpg

The Contract to PT Askes Indonesia(2005-2007)

Ministry of Health under the new Minister contracted PT Askes Indonesia for managing the Askeskin scheme for poor family.

This was a radical change from the previous policy, which channel the central budget directly to the hospitals and encourage local government health office to develop health insurance scheme.

There was no pilot study

A new change in 2008: Askeskin program was renamed to Jamkesmas.

The coverage is not only the poor but also near poor (more coverage).

The budget is channelled directly to Hospital and Health Centers using managed care concept (incl. DRG)

Increasing budget.

Is this an indicator of success in reforming indonesian health finance l.jpg

Is this an indicator of success in reforming Indonesian health finance?


Slide32 l.jpg

Since 2001, - the health program for the poor had improved the utilization of public hospital by the poor - Kakwani Index is improving


Slide33 l.jpg

But,

  • There is still a geographical inequity

Due to the access to

  • Medical specialists

  • Hospitals

    Across Indonesia


Specialist distribution kki 2008 l.jpg

Specialist distribution (KKI, 2008)

  • Jakarta: 24% of specialists, serves around 4% community in a relatively small area

  • Provinces in Java: 49% of specialists, serves around 53% community

  • Rest of Indonesia: 27% of specialists, serves around 43% community in a very large area

Average number of private hospital at a district l.jpg

Hipothesis l.jpg

Hipothesis

  • Health Finance provided by Jamkesmas will be used more by poor and near poor people in and around big cities

  • Most in Java Island

  • Left the poor and near poor people in remote area or in the places where there is no medical service and specialists


Slide38 l.jpg

This hipothesis may explain why Indonesian Insurance Coverage Status in 2007 (based on social economy survey) looks not good.

Therefore l.jpg

Therefore:

  • Health finance reform should be linked (at least) with Human Resources Reform

  • How is the condition of health care reform in human resources?

The Facts in 2008


Specialist distribution kki 200852 l.jpg

Specialist distribution (KKI, 2008)


Slide53 l.jpg

Number of private hospitals is increasing more than government ones.

  • Number of For-Profit Private-Hospital almost doubled in the last five years

  • Number of Non-For-Profit-Private Hospital almost remained the same


The increase of for profit private hospital l.jpg

The increase of for-profit private hospital:

  • Most happened in Java

  • Indicates the increasing role of private sector which can attract more medical specialists to Java

  • Some owned by medical specialists

  • Doctor culture is more influenced by private health service organization

  • Without good payment and better work conidtion is more difficult for out of Java hospitals to attract doctors


Medical specialis cultur e facts in 2008 done by various cultural studies in medical specialists l.jpg

Medical Specialis Culture Facts in 2008(done by various cultural studies in medical specialists)

  • There is not any significant change in medical specialist behavior.

  • Market influence in specialist is increasing.

  • Jamkesmas (health insurance) program is difficult to compete with fee for service system for doctor and medical specialists

  • No managed care culture


Current medical practices l.jpg

Current Medical Practices:

Specialists prefer to provide services in the middle and upper class using fee-for-service

Try to set own fees

No standard income


Link between health finance reform and human resources l.jpg

Link between Health Finance “Reform” and Human Resources

  • Health finance “reform” does not consider medical doctor and specialist condition

  • No attention in reforming the doctor payment. The fee for medical doctor from Jamkesmas is too low or not clear.

  • Human resources “reform” is not clear and weak in practice.

Does not meet the criteria of Health System Reform


What do we mean by health system reform bossert 2007 l.jpg

What Do We Mean by “Health System Reform”?(Bossert, 2007)

Does not meet the criteria of Health System Reform

  • Not everything that changes, or causes change, is a health system reform

  • Purposeful efforts to change the system to improve its performance

  • “little r” reforms; Small changes to one or a few features of the system

  • “Big R” reforms; Large changes to more than one feature of the system


Note the national reform in health finance l.jpg

Note: the National Reform in Health Finance

  • Health finance reform is not will designed and executed

  • The SJSN Law is not yet effective due to the lack of Government Regulation for implementation

  • Until 2009 there is no GR

  • The current implementation of SJSN Law is more political rhetoric, not technical.


Observation 2 l.jpg

Observation 2

  • Reform at Provincial Level


Based on dhs1 project at 7 provinces l.jpg

Based on DHS1 Project at 7 Provinces

  • Riau

  • Riau Island

  • Bengkulu

  • Bali

  • North Sulawesi

  • South East Sulawesi

  • Central Sulawesi


The question l.jpg

The Question:

  • Is there any reform with big R at provincial level?

  • A close observation into 54 DHS1 projects which are called as reform activties in 7 provinces


Analysis l.jpg

Analysis

  • All reformed-program was not designed as a big “R” reform

  • Each reformed-program is independent each other

  • The most popular topic: Health service Provision

  • No reform in public and private partnership


W hy there was no big r of health reform at provincial level l.jpg

Why there was no big “R” of health reform at provincial level?

There was no clear definition of health care reform

  • Provincial Government followed the change of national program and it is called reform.

  • Technical change in the program is also called reform.

  • No clear design of health care reform from the central government

Decentralization policy is not effective to initiate reform


Slide66 l.jpg

  • Conclusion


1 health reform is not well prepared at national and provincial level l.jpg

1. Health Reform is not well prepared at national and provincial level.

  • Reform is associated with political issue during the Suharto (ex president) stepdown period (1999).

  • Ministry of Health did not have intention to reform the health sector after decentralization policy (2000 – 2007)

  • There is no formal health reform document


2 health reform with small r only not interrelated as prescribed by experts l.jpg

2. Health reform with small “r”only: not interrelated as prescribed by experts.

At national health finance reform was designed without any intention to link to the reform in:

  • Paying medical specialists

  • Improving the organization of health service (developing health service network across country)

  • Changing the behavior of people (e.g smoking prevalence increases among the poor people)


3 decentralization policy has little effect on the reform at provincial and district level l.jpg

3. Decentralization policy has little effect on the reform at provincial and district level

Why?

  • The Government RegulationNo. 25/2000 (based on Act 22/99) on government function at different level was unclear in its concepts and implementation until replaced by PP 38/2007 (based on Act 32/04).

  • The period of 2000 – 2007 is still in the transition of decentralization policy

  • It is not the right time for making reform (as it is still in a transitional phase).


Notes in the decentralization policy l.jpg

Notes: in the Decentralization Policy:

The pendulum is swinging

Act 22/99

Act 32/04

centralization

De-centralization


2000 2007 the era of confusion and strange situation l.jpg

Change without significant change

Change in the Laws and Regulation but not significant change in the process and the improvement of health status indicators.

Indonesian health sector is a decentralized sector but experiencing:

a more “centralized” financing system (06-07).

Not coordinated change.

2000-2007: The era of confusion and “strange” situation

Will be discussed in Nossal Institute, University of Melbourne, Thursday 20th of May 2009


Slide72 l.jpg

  • After the stipulation of GR no 38 in 2007 (following Acts no 32/04):

  • the legal basis for designing and implementing health reform gets new momentum

Act 22/99

Act 32/04

centralization

De-centralization


Closing remark what next l.jpg

Closing remark: What next?

Is there any future of Indonesian Health Reform

  • at National Level?

  • at Provincial?

  • at District?


Moving forward l.jpg

2007

Pesimistic? No health reform

Optimistic? There will be health reform at national, provincial and district level

Moving Forward

  • Current activities in Indonesian Health Reform


Activities at central level l.jpg

Activities at central level

  • Ministry of Health established a small group on how to initiate health reform (started 2008)

  • But, this small group is not fully supported by top officers in the MoH


Activities at provincial and district level small scale l.jpg

Activities at provincial and district level (small scale)

  • Gadjah Mada University in collaboration with MoH, local governments, supported by:

Whether the activities will be effective to initiate and implement health reform?

The Supports

  • There are sufficient experiences during the transition period of decentralization (2000-2007)

  • The legal basis is available

  • The support of Ministry of Home Affair for health reform based in decentralization policy is big.

  • The knowledge of health reform is supported by international experts

But,

  • The success depends on the leadership of Ministry of Health and Provincial/District/ City Health Leaders.
