The results showed that in this pandemic era, BPJS Kesehatan only acts as a verifier for hospital costs that treat patients confirmed Covid-19. Optimizing the role of BPJS Kesehatan as guarantor of health costs will encounter several challenges and obstacles, including the revision of Presidential Decree No. 82/2018, the health budget shall be being a priority for the government, as well as improving the governance of BPJS Health.
