How about this scenario, guys...

 

Wife watching elderly husband's long-promised nest egg getting gobbled up by sky-high medical insurance premiums, realizes at the rate this is going she'll be a penniless widow in just a few years. Hmmm....what's a girl to do??? Pillow over the head time, baybeeee!

 

OMG ,  i have been thinking the same thing myself .

  Family and brother , not like me anymore. 

  Thought i  had found a good one, lucky ..

They took me to the ATM with an IV in my arm to make my daily cash payment.  I really don't see how I'd have escaped without my SAS team. 

 

      Never disclose you PIN, to your next of kin.

       You will be gone , sooner than you expected .

         Having said that , i have found a good one, just luck..

Plain and simple. This is open bullying of seniors. 50 year olds and up on long stay visas are well off and fully capable of funding themselves (reason for 800K or 65K/month requirement).   The risk is with the short timers who are more likely to have an accident and run without paying. So if they want to mandate health insurance it should be everyone!

Insurance is a scam under any circumstance as proven by their balance sheets, yet very necessary. It would be interesting to see a new insurance plan that returns a percentage if no claims are used. Difficult to set up a fair system since those who remain healthy have to put enough into the system to cover those who have health issues and cover any "reasonable" profit for the insurance company.

You did'nt read or understand what i wrote.

I don't see how you cannot pay your way out of hospital, be it A&E or the operating theatre.

You pay as you go, as i have done, the going rate, and more than a local.

So how is that costing the Thai tax payer money?

 

Oh and we are not talking about the travel insurance/holiday maker falling off his moped on Samui here. That is a different topic.

 

my doctor here on Samui and works in the government hospital, told me that his hospital was quite well off because many farang with travel insurance go there.

polaky they will never do a poll here because they know that it would be very different than the fake poll they put out 

An earlier poster said that poll is being organised.
