Do I have to do a PCR test on arrival in Indonesia?

No, but upon arrival at the airport in Indonesia, if the health service at the airport sees that a passenger on arrival has symptoms of COVID-19 (for example temperature greater than 37.5C) they will perform a PCR test to the passenger to verify. But for all passengers with temperature below 37.5C they will be able to start their holiday without any PCR on arrival.

What if I took a PCR test on arrival and the result is positive?

If the test result is positive, you must isolate yourself at a hotel for at least 5 days and get tested again on the fourth day to see if you are negative and able to start their vacation.

Especially for positive travelers who are elderly or who have severe symptoms, isolation will be done in a hospital.

There is an insurance that the government sells here on the web https://www.jagawisata.com/COVID19 that would cover all expenses in case of testing positive and costs IDR 500,000. If you also want an insurance that covers the rest of incidents, luggage, cancellations, etc., you can ask us about Intermundial Insurance that we offer.
