Now Health International, the international health insurance provider, today announces the opening of their latest operation in Indonesia.

Working with their underwriting partner in Indonesia, PT Asuransi Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Indonesia (SJNKI) which was established in June 2013*, Now Health’s range of regionally compliant plans are available to both individuals and companies.  Both expatriates and Indonesian local nationals are able to buy the International Private Medical Insurance cover provided by Now Health.

There is an additional option for customers to have hospital treatment within Indonesia and Singapore in a semi-private room and receive a 5% premium discount.
