A few moments ago the Main Director of BPJS Health signaled an increase in contributions for the National Health Insurance (JKN) program. This signal was conveyed after the Managing Director of BPJS Health met President Joko Widodo. Last year the President stated that the increase in JKN contributions would be carried out in 2025 after the 2024 elections.

The last increase in the JKN premium occurred in 2020 with the issuance of Presidential Regulation (Perpres) Number 75 of 2019. Later, the increase in premiums for Non-Wage Earners and Non-Workers (independent participants) was revoked by the Supreme Court Decision (MA) Number 7/P/HUM/2020. One of MA's legal considerations was that Perpres Number 75 of 2019 did not take into account the community's ability at that time.
