Cigna's innovative and flexible solution provides customers with the freedom to choose protection benefits, facilities, and protection areas both at home and abroad.

"Cigna Indonesia has more than 27 years of experience in providing appropriate health protection solutions for the growing middle class of individuals and families in Indonesia," said Cigna Indonesia Director Herlin Sutanto at the launch of Cigna Global Health Indonesia in Jakarta on Tuesday (25 / 7/2017).

"Today, through the launch of Cigna Global Health Indonesia, we are extending our reach to high net worth customers in Indonesia," he added.

With the rapidly growing upscale growth in Indonesia, more and more customers are seeking the best quality health care access that can protect them anywhere in the world without having to worry about the ever-increasing health bill.

Every year, more than 1 million Indonesian citizens go abroad for treatment, including to Malaysia and Singapore. On the other hand, increases in health costs in a country often surpass the rate of inflation.

In 2016, health care costs increased 15 percent, well above the 5.8 percent inflation rate. In the same period, health care costs in Malaysia also increased 15 percent, while inflation was only 1.7 percent. Therefore, healthcare costs can be very expensive if customers do not do proper planning.

Cigna Global Health Indonesia provides overseas health services to customers and allows them to choose the protection they need. There are three levels of protection (plan) that can be selected by customers, namely Silver Health, Gold Health and Platinum Health.
