Abstract: The smoke disaster caused by forest and land fires is a phenomenon occurring almost every year in Indonesia, especially in ten prone provinces including Riau Province. When the smoke haze occurred in the last three years that is always increasing. The objective of this research is to study the impact of KARHUTLA (Riau Forest and Land Fire) on Health Service Costs on ARI Disease in Payakumbuh City, West Sumatera. This research is an Ex Post Factor research to see the events that have happened. Respondents in this study are 100 people with respiratory infection located in health care work area Payakumbuh (Hospital, Clinic and other health services) and doctors and other health workers. Costs incurred in the provision of ARD services caused by KARHUTLA are the services of doctors, drugs and actions given to patients.
