It is important to be prepared with this health document at all times.

Most Indonesian hospitals and hospitals have their own websites where you may fill out and submit the online health card application. But if you are not able to connect to some of the services or even receive their calls, you might call the National Cancer Centre in the Department of Health and Family Planning Services at the Central Java Medical Center in Jakarta.

For individuals living outside the country, there are also Indonesian embassies and consulates that have connections with physician's offices around the nation. These embassies and consulates also distribute the cards to people living in the area.

The embassy or consulate can also help you to find a physician's clinic that specializes in cardiology, oncology, neurology, plastic surgery, pediatrics, cardiology, orthopedics, and other specialty areas.

Indonesian embassies and consulates can also offer you copies of the physician's form. This can be found in English and Urdu. You'll need this form to enroll yourself at a hospital. Once you've registered at a hospital, then you are able to avail of many public and private facilities offered by the facility.

The card can also be used for emergencies, but it may not consist of information on allergies. It may only describe what kind of conditions you are suffering from. It doesn't address other issues like heart conditions, asthma, diabetes, cancer, or pregnancy. This is vital because allergies must be addressed by your primary health care provider.

The Indonesia health alert card contains very basic information. It says that the holder is allergic to the allergen, which could be located in various places in Indonesia. It also states when the allergy began and at what time it subsided.
