  3. Content Definition of Reform in Health Care Observations: • 1. Health Care Reform at national level under decentralized policy ( 1999 – 2007) • 2. Health Care Reform in 7 Provinces (2006), Conclusion What next?

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 Using an interesting understanding of: • “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

  6. What is the meaning of health system features? • 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

  7. The “Control Knobs” from Harvard and WBI • Financing • Payment • Organization • Regulation • Persuasion and Behaviour Change

  9. Observation 1: National Level • Reform in Finance • Reform in Organizing and Paying Human Resources • Reform in Regulation • Reform in health Promotion • .... Critical Question: Is there any reform in • health finance? • Human Resources? Is there any effort for linking these features of health reform?

  10. Reform in Health Finance • Historical context of Indonesian Health Finance • Major milestones in the 2000s • What happened?

  11. Historical Perspective • Colonial Period • Independence and the “Old Order” • “New Order” • Decentralized era Before 1945 1945 - 1965 1965 - 1999 1999 - at present

  12. Colonial Period • The Dutch Indie was not administered as a welfare state • Health services were provided for government employees, military personnel, and big company employees. • Missionary hospitals and health services worked with limited coverage

  13. 1945 - 1965 • The period of market forces suppression • There was no clear national health financing policy. • There was an Act on poor family health services in early 1950s, but poorly implemented. • Health insurance and social security is limited for government employees, military personnel, and big company employees.

  14. 1965-1998 • The market economy was introduced • The private sector growth rapidly, incl, for profit hospitals. • There is a corporatization of medical services based on market forces • There was no clear regulation of health market • 1997: Economic crisis induced the Social Safety Net incl. Health.

  15. 1999 - current • Decentralization era since the stepdown of Suharto in 1998 • Direct Presidential and Governor/Major election • More populist policies at national,provincial, and district level • Poor family has free health and hospital services • Poor family scheme becomes political issue

  16. Historical Facts • Indonesia is not a welfare state since the colonial era • Indonesia has market based economy • Indonesian health system refers to American model using Safety Net, not the British one. • Hospitals operate within market ideology • Medical Doctors (esp. specialists) operates based on the fundamental demand and supply principles.

  22. 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

  23. 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

  24. Hospital Hospital Community Community Government as Payer Government as payer The Change in 2005 Contract to PT Askes Indonesia Subsidy to Providers (based on utilization) PT Askes I

  26. In 2008 2006-2007: Many disputes between Ministry of Health and PT Askes Indonesia 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.

  27. The national health security program increased government budget How Pay for Health Care

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

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

  30. But, • There is still a geographical inequity Due to the access to • Medical specialists • Hospitals Across Indonesia

  31. 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

  32. Average Number of Public Hospital at a district

  33. Average number of Private Hospital at a district

  34. 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

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

  36. Therefore: • Health finance reform should be linked (at least) with Human Resources Reform • How is the condition of health care reform in human resources?

  37. Reform in Human Resources • This discussion focuses on specialist
