What Are Medical Facilities Like?

Bali’s major medical facilities are modern and clean and have multilingual staff, medical specialists, and emergency medical capabilities. There are 6 hospitals on the island. Sanglah Hospital in Denpasar is the main public hospital and has an international wing to serve tourists. BIMC Hospital in Denpasar is a private facility catering to foreigners that accepts many insurance policies.

Smaller towns like Ubud have medical clinics for minor emergencies and illnesses. Avoid going to small public clinics that cater to locals unless you are in a rural area with no other options. Prescription and non-prescription drugs can be purchased at pharmacies or apoteks throughout Bali.

Before traveling, check with your health and/or travel insurance providers to determine if and where your coverage is accepted. Medical care can be expensive in Bali, so be sure to have adequate funds available in cash or credit for medical emergencies.
