"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.
