Task force set up to combat JKN fraud
The Jakarta Post
The Health Ministry announced on Wednesday that it would team up with the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) and Social Security Agency (BPJS) to handle fraudulent claims in the National Health Insurance (JKN) program.
“We’ve just formed a task force to draft fraud-prevention guidelines for the JKN,” Health Minister Nila F. Moeloek told reporters after visiting the KPK office earlier on Wednesday.
Pahala Nainggolan, the KPK deputy for prevention, said a fraud-prevention system was essential.
“In 2015, there were 175,000 claims believed to be fraudulent. Now there are 1 million [potentially fraudulent] claims detected. That is why we need to systematically build a fraud-prevention system,” he said, citing an internal report from the BPJS.
He added that the task force would be tasked with analyzing the current fraudulent claims based on BPJS data and to verify each case by collecting data directly from the field. (mrc/ary)
