An Expat Guide to Healthcare and Health Insurance in Jakarta

As a Jakarta expat, it is typical that very often you have the following questions on your mind: “How is Jakarta expat life going to be?”, “What to eat and what not to eat in Jakarta?”, Leading an expat life in Jakarta, Indonesia makes us think about many things. One of those important matters is Jakarta’s healthcare system.  

Here we have put together a healthcare guide for expats in Jakarta for you. It is going to cover state-owned Jakarta medical centers, private medical centers in Jakarta, cost of medical treatment in Jakarta. It also includes inpatient, outpatient and dental care in Jakarta, Jakarta emergency numbers and health insurance in Jakarta

Public Jakarta Medical Centers 

The majority of state-owned Jakarta medical centers are more geared towards Indonesian nationals than expatriates in Jakarta. For example, in MMC Hospital Jakarta (Metropolitan Medical Center) and Ciputra Hospital Jakarta, you will experience long waiting times for medical treatment whether your injury or medical situation is urgent or life-threatening or not. The medical staff at public Jakarta hospitals do not have fluent English communication skills either. This is the reason why expats living in Jakarta are more inclined to visit international hospitals owned by the private sector. 

Private Jakarta Medical Centers 

In Jakarta, there are a number of high-quality private Jakarta medical centers that mainly serve expatriates in this Indonesian capital. Some of the most popular Jakarta private hospitals include:
