assistance through contribution of Social Health Insurance for 92.4 million targeted poor and near poor house­holds. This segment of the population is referred to as Penerima Bantuan Iuran (PBI) and represents about 35% of the total population. This study reveals the government’s progress in protecting the health of this sub-population. The data is derived from the 2016 Na­tional Social Economic Survey. The results indicate that, at the national level, the government’s health protection program has reached the majority of poor and near poor household (51%), especially those residing in Eastern part of the country (58%). Together with local government’s support, 59.5% of poor and near poor households (66.4% in Eastern region) have been insured. While improvements in coverage should still be top policy agenda, this achievement of the government deserves more appreciation. We show that misalloca­tion of PBI to wealthy households is only small (3%), yet often broadcasted with much hype to create agitation.
