The method used in this research is a contingent valuation method (CVM). The sample of 394 respondents have interviewed. By binary logistic regression, it is showed that 64% of respondents are willing to pay health insurance, income, education level, and green tobacco sickness significantly influence the WTP, while age variable, family, and periods of work has no effect on WTP.
