The benefits of having Life Insurance For Family

The word insurance may already be familiar to you that have worked. Insurance as you all know is a guarantee of safety if unexpected things happen before. In ancient times the insurance is something that is considered a luxury and only intended for certain people only. But now the insurance has started to spread throughout the community.

Many kinds of insurance itself, namely life insurance, health insurance, vehicle insurance, property insurance or home insurance and education. Of the various kinds of insurance above, each type has their usefulness. But the important is an insurance for your family?

There are some people argue that life insurance has the functionality to protect one's income. In the sense that every person who has the income should be required to have insurance even more so if someone has a family.

If you are someone who has had a family means you have dependents you should memilliki insured. Here the insured is living or intended to finance the income your dependents.

If something happens that does not want to you as the backbone of the family, then your family will lose their source of income and lead to financial instability of the family. Different if you have life insurance, the family you left behind still have a source of income of life insurance you have.

Thus the views of the importance of life insurance benefits are so wise you should consider life insurance to take care of your family and yourself. Permi insurance payments each month should also be considered.

If you have a considerable number of dependents, the payment of insurance premiums to be slightly larger to provide for your family. Calculation of premiums at least you negotiate with, at least you consider to provide for the family to have a spine replacement. For example, until the oldest child and an adult you can support his wife and her sister, or until your wife coined the work can be a source of family income in case that does not want to yourself.

How the Future of Private Health Insurance After BPJS?

On January 1, 2014, Social Security Administering Agency (BPJS) is expected to be operational. BPJS This will ensure all Indonesian people can access basic health services. In BPJS, all previous public health insurance programs will merge into one, including Askes, Jamkesmas, Social Security and Jampersal.

Government of Indonesia plans to require all residents to participate BPJS by paying monthly dues. Whose contributions range may be about USD 15000-27000 per month, but has not been determined because it is still awaiting discussion. Because this program is not profit oriented, so if the number of excess or considered objections could still face down again.

For people who already have private insurance, wamenkes urged not to worry because BPJS intended to cover basic health services. People who have private insurance can choose the treatment to other hospitals that are better suited to their financial capabilities.

"People who already have private insurance still have to go BPJS to meet basic health needs. BPJS point is mutual cooperation, a healthy helping the sick, the rich helping the poor and the young helping the old," said Ghufron Mukti Ali, Deputy Minister of Health in a press conference on the implementation of the Ministry of Health BPJS, Friday (11/05/2012).

Wamenkes BPJS plan will work closely with private insurance so that participants BPJS not have to pay 2 times for health insurance. As for people who can not afford for that reason can not be paid for by the government.

In this program, each participant may enroll their family members through dues paid by the participants. The participants will be borne by any treatment, including an expensive operation as the operation of heart failure and chronic renal failure.

But there are also a limited health services such as eyeglasses should not change every 2 years. Types of health services that are not caused by disruption of bodily functions would not be guaranteed. Examples surgery for plastic surgery for cosmetic reasons.

Currently, the government focused on residents who do not have health insurance at all. For example, poor, poor pre and residents who do not have a fixed wage.

"We have guaranteed Jamkesmas 76.4 million. In 2013 we added 10 million more people will be paid by the government budget. Total membership became the focus of the government because our resources are limited," said Wamenkes.

Government focus on Jamkesmas because of poor communities is still less than optimal use. Moreover, the poor are still not aware of new health and see a doctor or health care center when the pain got worse. So no wonder if the cost of hospitalization in patients Jamkesmas greater.
