Abstract: Informal workers are the largest group of workers in East Java, with the total number of informal workers in East Java being twice the number of formal workers, which is about 12 million people. The Indonesian government itself has handed over the affairs of the workers’ security guarantees to BPJS Ketenagakerjaan (Employment). Until now, the number of participants in BPJS Ketenagakerjaan (Employment) in East Java from the informal sector has only reached about 100,000 people. This study aims to describe the financial capacity of the informal workers to participate in health insurance in Surabaya. The method used is analytical descriptive based on the secondary data of the national employment survey and the Central Bureau of Statistics (BPS). The results of the study show that informal workers have the ability to pay health insurance premiums because the public is able to finance their non-essential needs, and there has been an allocation of funds for health services. The willingness variable is generated because the workers are willing to make payments when there is an adjustment required between the premium with the expenditure of income and the complete health service. There are some actions that still need to be developed; socialisation, motivating the informal workers group to save money and government/cross-sector involvement (More)
