BPJS Kesehatan provides several channels for public complaints, namely the BPJS Kesehatan Care Center on 1500400, the LAPOR! application on the BPJS Kesehatan website, branch offices, regency/town offices and BPJS Kesehatan officials stationed at health facilities.

Based on the monthly report from the Presidential Office for the October period, BPJS Kesehatan was one of the non-structural institutions/agencies with a complaint response of less than one day. This ranks BPJS Kesehatan top on the list of the quickest non-structural agencies for handling complaints.
