International Health Insurance

International Health Insurance

Now Health Indonesia makes it fast and simple for you to get the right health cover, whether you want a basic health care plan or full coverage with all the bells and whistles.

 

Why do I need an International Medical Insurance? 

 

Are you an expatriate going on new life experience, living and working away from your home country? If you are, then an international health insurance plan is specifically designed for you. It’s perfect for people who are going to live abroad for a year or more and gives you the same quality of medical care as you’re used to no matter what country you’re in.

 

We talk to a lot of expats who think that travel insurance will have the same medical cover. It won’t. While travel medical plans do include some basic health coverage overseas, insurance policies like this are only designed for short term holidays when lost luggage and delayed flights take top priority. When it comes to protecting your health and avoiding the hassle of medical expenses, the best long-term solution is going for a private medical insurance plan with worldwide coverage.

International Health Insurance for Expats in Indonesia

 

Whether you're relocating to Indonesia or just searching for a new international health insurance provider, it's essential to know what’s available in terms of the country's healthcare facilities, insurance providers and other relevant services.

 

Indonesia has an estimated population of 240,000,000 people and is the fourth most populated nation in the world. General life expectancy for males is around 69, whilst the number for females is averaged at about 74.
Although Indonesia’s healthcare system receives much investment, the country is ravaged by a multitude of diseases and many of the country's richer citizens travel further afield for more expert medical attention, with Singapore or Australia proving to be popular alternatives.
This is why it is vital to ensure that you have a medical insurance plan which covers medical evacuation and repatriation expenses.

Healthcare facilities in Indonesia

 

Healthcare in the country is offered through both private and public sectors, with many choosing to go with the government-related public establishments rather than the privately-owned or religious organizations. There is no insurance scheme that provides for the entire population and may have to pay for their own healthcare. Foreigners are unable to receive treatment through Indonesia's government scheme and must be covered by their own nation's insurance.

 

There is no nationwide ambulance service for the country and so each hospital has its own separate system. It is also a good idea to identify private ambulance services while staying or living in the country.

 

Doctors in the public sector are not paid particularly well and often supplement their pay by seeking extra work with private organizations. Well-staffed village clinics with 24-hour practices do exist but as Indonesia is situated in a precarious part of the world, natural disasters and illness invariably keep the healthcare system one step behind.

 

The best facilities are naturally found in the built-up areas such as Jakarta, but in rural areas, these facilities are almost unheard of and the poor living conditions often mean that there is a risk of infected drinking water and contracting deadly diarrhea.

 

Before you go

 

It is important to receive vaccinations to protect you against Hepatitis A/B, Typhoid, Polio, Rabies, Tetanus, and Measles.
