TRIBUNBATAM.id - Not wanting to accept the impact of BPJS Health fee contribution that increase, which will take effect on January 1, 2020, Director of Embung Fatimah Hospital in Batam City, Ani Dewiyana asked BPJS to intensify socialization to public.
"We have to socialize because eventually patients will seek treatment from us. If you don't know the new payment pattern, then you will be angry with us," Ani said, Friday (6/9/2019) at Batam City DPRD Building on Jl Engku Putri, Batam Center, Batam, Riau Islands.
Meanwhile, RSUD is only providing health services.

These include, Civil Servants (PNS), Indonesian National Armed Forces / Indonesian National Police, state officials, non-PNS government employees, private / state employees / others.
