Dwi Ratna Paramitha

Abstract

The Indonesian economic is largely supported by excise and taxes from tobacco and cigarettes. The number of tobacco companies in Indonesia, as well as the high consumption of cigarettes causes problems, especially in the health sector. The purpose of this study is to analyse the economic conditions of Indonesia through tobacco taxes and tobacco companies, and the evaluation of the health costs incurred in relation to medical expenses and losses caused by cigarette consumption in the National Health Insurance program. This study will also seek to provide advice in the form of an alternative. The methodology used in this research was a literature study. In 2015, based on the data from the Ministry of Financing of the Republic of Indonesia, cigarettes are the largest contributor of excise revenue at 96 percent. In addition, the results of the National Health Insurance Performance Accountability Report 2015 shows that health financing issued in the National Health Insurance program is widely used for catastrophic diseases with the most causes being due to cigarette consumption. It shows that the income derived from tobacco and cigarette excise and taxes is not proportional to the losses borne by the National Health Insurance program.
