Are healthcare and health insurance expensive in Indonesia?
When we asked expats in Indonesia if healthcare and health insurance are expensive in Indonesia, they wrote...
"Healthcare and health insurance in Indonesia can be expensive, depending on the type of care and insurance coverage needed. Generally, basic healthcare services such as doctor visits and vaccinations are relatively affordable, but more specialized treatments and procedures can be costly. Health insurance premiums can also be expensive, especially for comprehensive coverage, but there are government-subsidized health insurance plans available for those who qualify," wrote a member who made the move to Indonesia.
"My kids and I all had dengue fever at the same time and were taken very well care of at BIMC, Nusa Dua. I am so pleased we had health insurance because the hospital bill would have cost us a hefty US $2100," explained one expat living in Bali, Indonesia.
