Fintech for Health Case Study: Healthcare financing in Indonesia

In this edition of Fintech for Health case studies, ACCESS Health Southeast Asia highlights healthcare financing challenges in Indonesia, and the role of insurtech company PasarPolis in bridging gaps in health coverage.

Currently, the organization continues to expand its outreach through partnerships with various local organizations, and has since expanded into Thailand and Vietnam.
