Still unresolved - Dutch man in dispute over Hua Hin Hospital charges waits on

  It's not about the money but the principle, so I'm surprised he's not seeing more support here, since everyone hates double pricing.  I think I would've given up long ago too, but I "get" why he wants the full amount.  You'd think the *hospital* would want to end it and cough up the extra few bucks.  (Though, according to my calculator, 300 extra baht, times 14 visits, adds up to 4200 baht-- am I missing something, or is he asking for interest?)

300 is just a part of it. plus additional 'administration fees' and other irregular manipulations.

Erwin, just let it go man, it’s not big money, just think about how much you would have had to pay for the same treatment back home in NL 

Nothing!

It's included in the insurance every Dutch has.

Do you think that’s related to his ass cancer?

Irregular manipulations? What are these irregular manipulations you speak of?

wait... wait.. I don’t think I want to know!

 

but hey... good on you for taking a stand and impacting on an organization as large as this... my (expat) wife got royally shafted by Bangkok hospital several years ago, whilst I was abroad, so stick it to them, and if the hospital gets away with reducing the amount, PM me and I’ll donate towards the difference.

Well done Mr Dutch. I too was charged 300 baht extra I went back to see the doctor and asked why previously I was charged 300bt and now its 600bt  The Doctor said, " because your  a farang"  she snatched the bill from me and cancelled the fee rudely . I was paying up to 3,000 baht per month for 8years for charges plus pharmacy medication  My wife now picks up the tablets from a pharmacy in Rangsit and pays no more than 400 baht and that's for two month supplies What are these hospitals getting away with.

Not unless he was perhaps 'butted' by the goat?

I understand what you mean and I probably would have just wrote it down to TIT, or accepted what they offered. However, I think this bloke has some steel balls in doing what he is doing and hope he gets the settlement he wants. It is good to see someone taking a stand against these double standards and not letting them just fob him off and carry on regardless. If more of us had grown a spine over the years and done the same as him, they probably would have thought twice about their pricing scams in general. I vote with my feet when it comes to their increased national park charges and similar, I just don't go or turn around at the gate. Hat's off to this guy for standing up for something he obviously believes in and it shows too that it is not just about the money.

Bang on.Well said.

I was asking another poster if he believed that a work permit had anything to do with cancer.... but if you want to discuss gerbils, lead on

 Well good luck to him   

most Dutch follow the straight and narrow  and are schuur boeren  when it comes to money 

but this guy has a health problem and should not be overcharged  again in the west it would be more as everybody  Said  

 

but he lives in LOS not in the west so has to take what is on offer in the country .

 

well put yourself in his position many dont worry about 12 grand well Lucky u { he does }

and there are many many more Farang living in Los that could also not miss 12 grand 

 

so guys a mild approach for this guy  but as Always have the moaners and groaners here   guess nothing better to do

Poor article without spesification of the fee he is complaining about: All fees have a code. The prices can be verified at the goverments website. The goverments webside does not have double pricing like "farang" prices.

 

The current prices for hospital services can be foundt at "grom banchi glang" the comptroller generals department site: http://welcgd.cgd.go.th/wel/checktstmed. 

 

Outpatient Service charge have the code 55021 and is priced at 50 baht for all hospitals. Is this the fee you are complaining about?

or is it:

 

ค่าบริการทางการพยาบาล Nursing Service
ค่าบริการทางทันตกรรม Dental Service
ค่าธรรมเนียมทางการแพทย์ Doctor Service.
