Abstract

Financial barrier is one of the main constraints for the Indonesian poor to access the maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH) services. In its new universal healthcare scheme, known as Jaminan Kesehatan Nasional (JKN) which was launched on 1 January this year, the government provides insurance coverage for the poor in the beneficiary list. It is expected that through this scheme, the poor will have financial protection from out-of-pocket (OOP) health expenditures at a healthcare facility.
