Health insurance mandatory for long-stay foreigners in Thailand

No you don't get my point. 

The amounts are low.

The outpatient requirement is BIZARRE. clearly for the insurance companies.

So you get a policy that excludes all preexisting conditions, most older people have multiple ones, you pay your money, and then you're not really covered.

DUH. 

Most patients are outpatient not bizarre.

Well, it is like the updated Visa rules.

Then I guess they need to decide to stay or go.

Simple really...

Any other American Retired Military here with Tricare for Life?  What do you think about this?  We have better covers than what needed here but it not 400,000/40,000.  I pay 25% of the cost both outpatient and inpatient up to a max of $3,000 a year.  I go to an international hospital for all my care.  I also have a letter from Tricare saying I am covered and the Federal Tax for that is required stating I have health insurance.  I like to know what others who have this think?

So how many are going to be leaving now, what exactly s a NON O -A I have a visa which just states NON O married to a  Thai (no other letters  after it) been on it for 6  years.

Perhaps someone can clarify if  it  will  apply to me?

O-A is the visa from home country.

The OP does appear to only list O-A or extensions based on.

Has anyone obtained health insurance within Thailand? If so, did you have to provide your medical records from your home country or was a medical examination required by the insurer prior to the policy commencing?

I have had insurance cover since I was 64 (now 70) no medical examination just a form to be ticked. no medical records needed. There is a different range of cover, one for accidents and one for illness (not very high around 380K) but it is also a life insurance for the missus. I mentioned to my better half that 380K doesn't correspond to to the 400K needed but she said I am also covered by the village health insurance and this should make up for the shortfall, we shall see.

If the embassy can't figure out a pension or ss document, what makes you think they will understand and guarantee a insurance policy?

I said there might be a demand for it.

Me too, if it applies to those on marriage visas too I reckon I'll reluctantly have to move elsewhere.

Oh dear will you be missed ??
