Under the national health insurance JKN scheme, assistive technology for elderly people such as spectacles, wheelchairs, false teeth, walking frames, neck brace, and hearing aids are available free of charge for those who need them. A cut-off value of each item and an annual limit of device purchase apply for each type of medical device or assistive technology. For instance, for hearing aid, JKN will cover only up until IDR 5 million and can only be given once every five years per claimant (Sanchia & Halim, 2019).
