(9/7/2009)

The provincial government of Bali have decided to end the use of "poverty certificates" (kartu miskin) currently issued to local citizens seeking free medical service. In the past, these cards were used and sometimes abused by both poor and middle-class citizens seeking medical assistance without charge from Bali hospitals.

As reported by beritabali.com, governor Pastika has announced that the "poverty certificates" will no longer be required now that Bali has introduced a program of free medical care for all Bali residents.

The free medical care program only requires that those seeking medical treatment to present a local identity card (KTP) to receive complementary hospitalization and treatment in third class medical wards.

The governor told the press the free medical care is available to both the rich and poor, providing they are prepared to accept treatment in third class medical wards.

The free medical care will only be given to people holding a Bali identity card (KTP).

The provincial government has allocated Rp. 100 billion (US$9.8 million) for the free medical service with each regency in Bali also making funds available for the program.
