I don't understand the sign.
Are they saying the foreigner surcharge is 25 percent over the normal Thai charges or are they saying that an EXISTING surcharge will now be even more of a surcharge?
If it's 25 percent of the normal Thai charges, that doesn't sound all that bad. I'm kind of used to being ripped off here in such matters.
They are building new buildings and renovating? Also I asked them and they said because thais pay tax but foreigners don't... Lol

They should spend a little of the foreigner extra funds on posting an actually COHERENT sign!:stoner:

I think it's just 25% more than what thais are paying but still very weird, why not say all africans or all Chinese people pay more? Doesn't seem fair to me...

I was there today, and saw that sign.
First thoughts was it is still only a low fee.
Rereading it states overseas patients will pay an increase.
So maybe it is for visiting patients. Not for foreigners living full time in Thailand.
We all have read of visitors who come here with no travel insurance, or a low paying insurance cover. Who have few if any means of paying.
I do admit the sign is poorly written.

I would presume from their POV whether you are 'overseas' or not is determined by your passport.

Is this a government or private hospital?  The name siriraj seems familiar to me as a private hospital, but can anyone confirm?

Thats quite a random rant , did you post that in the right thread ?

Yes right slot. That is directed specifically to the stick it to you organizations showing a possible hint of their normal racism. You will see more of it here and there in the near future ongoing. 25% is a wallop.
