Indonesia healthcare overview

Indonesia’s tax-funded universal health care program, BPJS-Kesehatan, was launched in 2014.

BPJS-Kesehatan (also referred to as JKN) provides free or low cost care through community centres, private practices, primary clinics, hospitals and dental clinics and over 2,500 supporting services such as pharmacies across Indonesia. In the coming years, it is expected to cover close to 100% of the population with basic services.

The country’s private healthcare sector is growing quickly and is primarily funded by private insurance and out-of-pocket payments by patients. Private hospitals, clinics and medical centres offer a wide range of services, including specialty care, diagnostic services and elective procedures.

Both public and private healthcare systems in Indonesia are regulated by the Ministry of Health, through policy setting, oversight and quality and safety controls. The Ministry of Health also works with bodies such as the Indonesian Medical Council to ensure that healthcare providers meet the necessary standards for education, training and professional conduct.
