Merdeka.com – Health workers (nakes) and teachers with civil servant status (PNS) in Garut, West Java who receive services and certification are forced to pay dues from 2020 to 2022 by the Social Security Administration (BPJS). This happened because of the delay in socializing the payment of BPJS contributions.
One of the health workers in Garut, Kris admitted that he was quite surprised to suddenly receive a notification letter that he had to pay BPJS contributions.
“The fees paid are from 2020 to 2022. This rule applies to all health workers working in BLUD Puskesmas, or recipients of jaspel (services),” said Kris, Thursday (22/9).
Kris revealed that he was not the only one who was shocked, but other health workers were also in the same condition. Moreover, from the information received, the money that must be submitted from the Puskesmas to pay the BPJS contributions reached Rp60 million.
“This is our small Puskesmas, which is already Rp. 60 million. Maybe if it was like the Tarogong Health Center which has inpatient care, the number will definitely be even higher,” he said.
According to Kris, in the letter, the withdrawal of contributions is a follow-up to Presidential Decree No. 75 of 2019 and Presidential Regulation No. 64 of 2020, as well as technical regulations on Permendagri No. 70 of 2020 and circular letter of the Ministry of Home Affairs number 900/471/SJ 2020, particularly regarding JKN contributions. from service allowances for civil servants working in BLUD work units.
“This is an old rule, but why was it only socialized this year by BPJS Tasik, so it’s just like you’re stuck. The money you’ve received has also been used. I’m sure BPJS has deducted everything from your salary, but this is a new fee from Jaspel,” explained Kris.
Meanwhile, Dewi, a civil servant teacher in Garut, was also surprised by the fees that had to be paid from the certification fee. “Just found out there is a rule. You know, every payday, our salaries have been deducted for BPJS contributions every month, now we have to pay more,” he said.
With the newly discovered regulation, Dewi admitted that she was currently confused about paying because the certification money she received was immediately used as needed.
“It’s even more confusing if the payment has to be blocked (all directly). Yes, it might be from salary or certification if it goes down,” he said.
Related to this, the Regional Secretary of Garut Regency, Nurdin Yana confirmed it. He explained that initially BPJS contributions only came from the calculation of salaries, but now the accumulated certifications are received.
“There are two salaries, a salary according to the position and some are incentives. The incentives are now according to the new rules that are included in the calculation of BPJS payments. That seems to have not been paid,” explained Nurdin.
Nurdin said that there was a delay from BPJS for the 2020 regulation in Garut Regency. “Socialization in Garut was only carried out around June-July, it was also to educators and had been questioned by them (educators),” he said.
Even though it has just been socialized, Nurdin said that the normative stipulation of BPJS that these contributions must be collected. However, the billing and payment patterns are still under discussion.
“From BPJS, it must be billed (contributions from certification and services),” he said.
So far, he disclosed, the calculation of the accumulated BPJS contributions only comes from salaries and job allowances. Meanwhile, incentives are not included in the calculation of contributions because the receipts are not combined.
“The payment of BPJS contributions for civil servants has indeed been determined according to the percentage of salary. Prior to this regulation, health workers and certification incentives were not calculated because they were not combined with salaries. Health workers’ incentives were also calculated from the accumulation of services, only paid, so the numbers fluctuate every month,” ” he said. [cob]
