Tonight, Want to ask about the burden of costs for patients who have contracted the corona virus, the cost of treatment is borne by the patient or from the government yes (outside the BPJS), because this is a disease from a foreign country (outside Indonesia)?

1 Answer:

Hello Anto,

Thank you for the question.

The epidemic of COVID-19 (Coronavirus disease 2019) today is indeed troubling many parties. Not only because the symptoms are very disturbing, reduce productivity, and even deadly if late handled, but also because of the treatment which of course can cost you a lot.

Diagnosing COVID-19 should not be careless. Only by showing the same clinical symptoms, which are fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, spasms, etc., does not necessarily make you diagnosed as COVID-19. The diagnosis of this disease can only be made after a comprehensive examination by a doctor, from physical examination to support, such as blood tests, sputum tests, x-rays, as well as throat swabs.

If it is true that the symptoms that have arisen are indeed caused by COVID-19, it is certainly the responsibility of the government to help finance the process of handling these patients. As for how much the government helps the costs (whether in whole, in part, or not at all) can be different, depending on many factors, such as the severity of the disease, whether the patient is actively using government health insurance or not, where the patient is examined, and so on. So, this is not purely dependent on whether the disease originates from our own country, or from another country.

However, if it turns out that suffered only similar symptoms, but the cause is not COVID-19, then further evaluation is needed to assess the condition of the patient. Of course, COVID-19 is not the only one that can be helped by government funding, but also many other diseases. If indeed it meets the criteria to be assisted by the government and if the procedure has been carried out correctly, of course financing should not be an obstacle anymore.

That's all our explanation. However, it is more appropriate, if you consult directly with the experts, namely the administration of health facilities where you check yourself or also to government agencies that handle BPJS problems.

Hope this helps ...
