Can Palms And Soles Be X-rayed With BPJS?
want to ask if you can X-ray palms and soles of the feet …. ??? If you can, can you use BPJS …. ??? thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
X-rays of palms and soles of course can be done, but whether the cost of X-rays can be claimed to BPJS of course this depends on whether there are indications of X-rays or not. If you do the X-ray on your own volition (you go to the X-ray yourself without a doctor's referral and without a clear indication), then the costs will certainly not be covered by BPJS.
If you experience certain symptoms in the palm of your hand or the soles of your feet (for example, you have recently experienced trauma / injury to your palms and feet, there are certain diseases of the joints, etc.), then you should check yourself with a general practitioner first. . If it is suspected that a certain disease can indeed be diagnosed (or a differential diagnosis can be ruled out) by X-ray examination, then your doctor will provide an X-ray introduction letter and the cost will be covered by the BPJS.
As an important note, you have to register with BPJS and pay a monthly BPJS premium (or the company where you work to pay for you) before you can do all of the above.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
