Healthcare in Jakarta is variable, and while expats have access to both public and private facilities, the majority of expats choose to use private hospitals or clinics. For more serious medical procedures, expats often travel to neighbouring Singapore.
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.
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.
Below is a list of the most prominent expat-friendly hospitals and clinics in and around Jakarta,
