Healthcare in Jakarta varies in standard, and while expats have access to both public and private facilities, most expats choose to use private hospitals or clinics. For more serious medical procedures, expats often travel to neighbouring Singapore.
The government of Jakarta has been proactive in initiating projects to enhance the healthcare infrastructure. Investments in new medical facilities, upgrading existing ones and fostering medical research are part of the agenda to elevate healthcare standards in the city.
The cost of healthcare in Indonesia is moderate when compared to neighbouring regions like Singapore. The spectrum of medical services and the quality of care may vary though, making it essential for individuals to choose healthcare providers wisely.
Pharmacies are plentiful in Jakarta and can be found in most large malls; these sell a wide range of prescription and over-the-counter medication. Besides hospitals, Jakarta hosts a range of specialised clinics and medical research centres, playing a crucial role in advancing medical knowledge and offering specialised care to the residents.
Although Indonesian authorities have begun to implement a universal health insurance scheme, foreigners do not benefit from this scheme, and it’s essential for expats moving to Jakarta to arrange comprehensive health insurance. Those arriving in the city as part of a corporate relocation package will most likely have their company organise and contribute towards this.
