Korea, Indonesia collaborate to implement universal health insurance program

A consultation group will be formed between the two states.

Korea’s National Health Insurance Service (NHIS) will work with its Indonesian peers to help Indonesia operate its national health insurance program.

The health insurance agency revealed that it will work with the Korea Development Institute and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) to offer consultations for health insurance policy for eight months.

The NHIS will offer customized policy consultations with their Indonesian counterparts. In particular, NHIS will form a consultation group with health insurance researchers and scholars to help Indonesia achieve sustainability in health insurance finance, enhance the insurer’s function as a strategic service purchaser, and improve the medical delivery system.

“Our experience to improve the health insurance system in Vietnam, Oman, the Philippines, Ghana, Colombia, and Peru will help us give good advice to Indonesia,” an official at NHIS said. “After that, we will expand our business to help Indonesia execute the health insurance system.”
