The House of Representatives are mulling over a plan to form a special committee that would challenge the government’s regulation for the National Security System (SJSN) expected to come into effect in 2014.

Lawmakers said that Government Regulation No. 11/2012 on the monthly premium for health insurance under the program had too many loopholes.

A lawmaker from Commission IX overseeing wealth and welfare Karolin Margret Natasa, who is also an Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) lawmaker, said the regulation failed to clearly state the criteria for low-income individuals eligible for the monthly premium provided by the social security providers (BPJS).

The new regulation only stipulates that people who are eligible, to have their monthly premium paid by the BPJS, are those whose income is not enough to pay the premium for the program.
