Jakarta. Residents of Bandung can now register for their health insurance at two shopping malls in the West Java capital — Lippo-owned Bandung Indah Plaza and Istana Plaza — after state healthcare agency BPJS Kesehatan launched its pop-up registration booths at both malls.
A statement from the agency released on Thursday (06/04) said that starting from last Saturday, visitors to the mall can use the free service everyday — even on weekends — from 11.00 a.m. to 8.00 p.m.
"This service is great for people who don't have the time to join the queue at BPJS offices," BPJS Kesehatan regional division head Mohammad Edison said.
Signing up for the BPJS health insurance at the malls is easy. Applicants only need to show their national ID card (KTP) and fill out a form. Once approved, they will be given a virtual account number to pay their insurance installment.
Didie S. Markibah, the director of Bandung Indah Plaza and Istana Plaza, said the co-operation shows Lippo Group's commitment to help the government reach their BPJS membership target.
"We want to help make it easier for people to sign up with BPJS Kesehatan's National Health Insurance (JKN) and the Indonesian Health Card (KIS)," Didie said.
