Hua Hin: Cancer sufferer still fighting for justice - so that others won't be conned

Recommended Posts

Knowing the Dutchmen (Hollanders) very well they always complain when they have to pay something. Being 'overcharged', as he calls, for 12.700THB in 2 years, at 100THB per treatment, is a real very big attack on his financial capacities. He better could stay in Holland where 'everything' is for free. Poor man what even has to rise goats to come to an income for his living. Maby he also have to start a crowfunding, very popular this days.

i got charged a 100 baht, for the nurse going down the escalator with me to the pharmacy. (well they done nothing else)

I would suggest that she was on a far more important mission and that was to make sure you got to the cashier, without disappearing!    You wouldn't get anything from the pharmacy without having paid the bill first!!

charged him an extra 300 baht (or 15% more) per visit for treatment for colon cancer

That does not make sense on it's own...."Extra"....above what. Is it meant to be 15% more than a Thai person...if so...why not say that?

฿300 extra per visit doesn't seem like a big deal compared to what I'm experiencing with a MAJOR private hospital in Bangkok.  I need six eye injections of a VEGF drug called Avastin and the first question the hospital asked is: "Is the patient Thai or foreign?" My wife was quoted ฿16,000 per injection for Thais...she then asked what a foreigner would have to pay?  She was told ฿23,000.

I have been going to Hua Hin Hospital for 6 years, and I have no complaints.

 

I generally use the 'express' service, and I pay extra for the service, as do ALL the Thai patients.

 

At times I have used the after hours OPD specialist service, and pay extra for the service, as do ALL Thai patients, including my Thai partner who is a nurse in another governent hospital.

 

After Christmas last year I was admitted as a patient in a private room due to a severe UTI infection requiring IV antiobiotics for 4 days - I paid the same fees as a Thai patient would have.

 

Most of the medical staff at Hua Hin Hospital are excellent - many doctors have thier own private after hours clinics, and several also work part-time in one of the two Hua Hin private hospitals.

 

Hua Hin Hospital provides a great service to the community; the Hospital is also several million Baht in debt, as are many many other Thai government hospitals.

 

Personally, I do not mind paying a few hundred Baht extra per visit to Hua Hin Hospital, as it helps the Hospital continue is great work in our community.

 

On the other hand, I do not accept being ripped off by the local motor cycle taxi, taxi and tuk tuk marfia.

They are scum here for duel pricing 

Was that an intended spelling pun or accidental?

Perhaps it's just dawning on him now.

Queen Sirakit Naval Hospital in Sattahip near Utapao charges foreigners 50% extra and will not allow them to buy any discount promo package.

At that hospital I got a hernia operation some years ago and paid 12.074 Baht total incl room food etc. 

3 months ago I went there again for same operation opposite side and they quoted me 100.000 Bath. 

Quite a different price for exactly same operation. 

Went to a local government hospital in Pattaya and was here quoted 50.000 Bath. They only wanted 30.000 paid in advance for the doctor.

From April 2018 the government allowed public hospitals up to 50% 'Foreigner Surcharge'. This hospital has obviously chosen the maximum. 

At Siriraj hospital in Bangkok where I regularly need to attend the surchsrge is 25%.
