Abstract


Background: Community is one of the components that must
be prepared to participate on funding the health insurance
according to their ability. The main problem in Indonesia is that
there are many informal workers who have unsteady income
and are not the target of Jamkesmas, but they have the ability
funding for their health insurance
Method: The study aim was to asses the ability and willingness
of informal workers funding for health insurance in Bandung
City. A survey with multy stage random sampling was
conducted using questionnaire for 700 respondents.
Descriptive analysis technique was performed.
Result: The results were average nonfood expenditure was
1.62 times greater than average food expenditure, average
“nonprimary” expenditure such as personal expenditure,
“arisan”, recreation and saving, was 2.13 times greater than
average health expenditure. 94.4% of respondents did not
have any health saving, 87.1% of respondents would like to
participate funding their health insurance.
Conclusions: In Bandung City, the informal workers have the
ability and willingness to participate on funding their health
insurance, so that the policy of “free health care” should be
reconsidered. On the other hand, there are some actions still
need to be developed, those are socialization; the collecting
method; motivating this group to save money for health as they
have an unsteady income.
