After hours

If you need to see a doctor outside of business hours, you can go to the Salatiga City Hospital. It is open 24 hours. You don’t need to make an appointment before you go. You may need to wait some time to see a nurse or doctor, so take this into consideration.

Medical prescriptions

Medical costs

As an international student, you are required to have appropriate medical and travel insurance to assist with your health costs, including mental health and wellbeing costs, while you are in Indonesia. However, there may be additional fees for specialist services, so it is important to find out if additional costs apply.

On campus, your consultation fee with Student Health is often covered automatically when you are enrolled. Conditions that cannot be covered include pre-existing medical conditions, contraception, genital health, sexual health, fertility, screening tests, and acne management.

If your consultation is not directly billable and is covered by your insurance, you need to make a claim to your insurance provider. If you have another type of insurance, you will have to pay upfront and arrange a claim with your insurer later. Otherwise, you may also join the Indonesian Healthcare Insurance Program (BPJS) once you have arrived in Indonesia. Find out more about this healthcare service here .
