Does BPJS Provide Braces For People With Scoliosis?
What hospitals provide free scoliosis braces for BPJS recipients
BPJS based on the minister of health regulation number 71 of 2013 guarantees several types of medical devices. Medical devices are only given to participants who do have medical indications with the following conditions:
Glasses are given if there is a recommendation from an ophthalmologist with a prescription for spherical lenses> 0.5 diopters and / or cylindrical lenses> 0.25 diopters. BPJS only guarantees giving glasses once every 2 years. The ceiling that BPJS pays to health facilities depends on your BPJS class, a maximum of 300 thousand.
Hearing aids are given based on the recommendation of an ENT specialist. BPJS only guarantees hearing aids once in 5 years per ear.
Dentures on the recommendation of a dentist, can be given every 2 years for the same tooth.
Neck brace / collar neck is given to patients with trauma to the neck or fractures (fractures) in the neck bones. Can be given once in 2 years.
A bone support jacket / corset can be given a maximum of 1 time every 2 years. The maximum ceiling given to health facilities is only 350 thousand.
The prosthesis of locomotives (artificial limbs and hands) is given on the recommendation of an orthopedic doctor. It can only be given every 5 years for the same mobility device.
Movement aids in the form of body support crutches are given on the recommendation of an orthopedic doctor. Can only be given every 5 years.
To get medical device services, you must ensure that you have paid BPJS fees regularly every month or that your dues are paid by the government. You must follow the referral procedure that has been determined by the BPJS and go to a health facility that does provide these medical devices, because the fact is that scoliosis braces are not available in every health facility. If you are still confused, you should consult further at the nearest BPJS Service Office. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
