this site is full of narcissistic psychopath with no care for others...

 

I was covered, till my wife wanted a divorce... (on her work / family insurance)

 

I paid for house, have family, have children that are not FREE to leave with me

 

live here 10+ years, but just have to stop moaning... nice

 

40k outpatient ? what the hell ...  I pay that out of pocket anyways as I did not even have that for the last 10 years

 

yes, everybody should have insurance

 

but what the crap, there was a post a few months ago

 

that a small ELITE of government workers stole about half of everything related to healthcare costs (reselling medication, unneeded visits for a broken nail..., 5 packs of medication with antibiotics for a sneeze)

 

what are the exact numbers ?  

 

is it 30 day tourists ?   prove it with numbers

 

is it really long stay "tourists" (expats are long stay tourists, nothing more)

 

some high up must have connections with insurance companies

 

 

forcing these strange rules

 

we follow the rules, the 400 / 800k   and for what in return ?

 

the right to spend your money, till you run out and then its deportation ? bye bye

Look Mr Anti narcissists - YOU chose to live in a foreign country out of your own volition. These are the laws you have to abide by - like it or nor.

No company will issue insurance for anyone over 75. Does this mean we are all going to have to leave?

It is quite possible.

Old people are a big financial burden.

Sorry, but it is true.

So, it seems many will have to seek an alternative.

Maybe Vietnam or Cambodia do not care about the burden or those who do not pay their bills?

Yes - If you are of sound mind. No insurance - no right to live there. They are the rules mate.

wow, it really seems like they are trying to push the old Westerners out of here. First it was an increase in the amount of money in the bank, money you cannot touch essentially, and now mandatory health insurance with a set amount in terms of coverage. There is also the identity scanners they hope to put in immigration, as well as those tracking bracelets they dreamt about lol - looking forward to seeing what happens next month

I don't know any foreigners with an O-A VISA so the thread is irrelevant.

Lots of companies do over 75, its just more expensive, one of them does up to 100 years old.
