Abstract

Given their enormous population, the legal protection of health insurance for workers in the informal sector is a top priority. Although there is a requirement to pay BPJS Health payments and provide work safety assurances, there are still barriers in the form of no written cooperative agreement because they are simply independent contractors. This study attempts to give informal sector workers legal protection for health insurance so they may access medical care. Utilizing a qualitative approach, this investigation. The findings of the study demonstrate that informal employers do not give BJPS Employment health rights, which ensures work accidents. The Social Security Administering Body is responsible for enforcing legislative rules based on the Laws of the Republic of Indonesia Number 24 of 2011 on BPJS, which establishes National Social Security. According to their membership, BPJS Health is a citizen's right to health; if the employer is careless, sanctions will be applied.
