Yes, thatake their responsibility and also take care of themselftpeople  is for Thais and all is well with that. They need insurance as well as expats and long time stayers in Thailand do. Wonder when they are going to speed up the process to make it mandatory for all of us to have insurance. That is really needed as a security that all people take their responsibility and also take care about themselfs.

If they keep up with letting every single person decide by themselfs, there are always going to be lazy people that disregard the need to be safe and have the protection they need. Would be nice to include that in the 2021 plans.

Rrrrrrrrrr.......Let me see.....How about....No not interested...

Why not ? What are you struggling with ? - if I have the means to cover ANY health related incident I am insured with myself ? 

 

I'm baffled why you don't get that ?

 

 

The reason with insurance is also that it should work for the part thta recieves the money or payment. If you have 5 million today, is not a guarantee for the second part that you will have that tomrrow or when something happens. Maybe less baffled now, or otherwise you are refusing and not struggling.

What ? I haven't had a need for hospital treatment for 35 years+ - who's in profit, me or you ?

 

You are paying over £3,000 for something that might not happen year after year - lunacy !

No, know I can see you do not understand. That is what is called an insurance, because it gives you security in life. Let´s see if the next 5 years will still hold the profit for you. That´s no profit at all. That´s where the pure lunacy lives.

And I'm guessing that you will let us all know how these poor folk will pay for that "mandatory" insurance from companies that will screw them over in a second with their third or fourth rate policies. A whole lot of these people barely make it from day to day on what they have let alone forking out even more for the privilege of getting screwed. Talk about morally acceptable. 

I was taking the conversation further and are at the moment talking about mandatory insurance for foreigners. That Thai people can´t afford this, I am well aware of. Most of them will not need too, due to that it only concerns treatment in private hospitals, and special treatment in government hospitals. Some will want to have that treatment, and then they will have to pay like everybody else for private care. Simple as that, so no bad moral here.

I just looked into travel to Europe. The travel insurance there is a deal. I am not sure how good it is but it is very fairly priced. And the cut off age is 75. 

I don't understand why Thailand cannot implement that for Tourists and it's people.  

I also looked into buying insurance for Thailand threw one of the big insurance companies. It was about two to three times higher as the  European insurance. Something is definitely WRONG with this picture.

Doooh. If you have 800k and use more than 400k if on a retirement extension = no renewal. Half that if married.

hence my  reply "how  much  you  use"  but  thanks Homer for  not  understanding  my reply

And if you do need to use it for expenses, you get refused an extension next time.

so what? is  this  relevant  for  the need for  insurance?

I believe that the recent changes in what you are required to have as a minimum in the bank in order to get and keep your 'retirement extension' 400,000 is to ensure that you have enough money to pay for your own treatment in a Thai Hospital.

However, if you use that 400k to pay for treatment in a Thai hospital, you will not need it for your extension....because you will not get one.

Garbage - I don't have a very expensive health policy as if anything happens to me, and I mean anything, I have more than enough cash in the bank to pay for it and if it doesn't happen to me, I keep myself very fit, then I'm quids in. ie I insure myself

 

How am I lazy ?

I agree...... but would not have given you a "like" if your chosen user name was different.  Please know that

Wise up - if you put a heavy claim in the very first thing insurance companies will do is troll through your medical records for the slightest reason to deny your claim so its fair to say that many of the people gloating they have gold standard health insurance aren't even covered! Then there's the excesses, restriction of choice etc etc 

 

Self insurance rules all that worry/scrutiny out as well as giving me the option of choosing exactly who and when I want someone to treat me.

Stop posting nonsense . I had 130000 baht claim 6 months through my cover , it was paid with no hassles at all and renewal was the same.

 

of course if you try to outsmart insurance and get caught then sadly you were not smart enough.

 

insurance can not “dig” if there is no reason to dig, but you welcome to self insure and if it fails there is always gofund me👍

Oh dear, read some of the post and see what turn much of the discussion has been taking, and you will also understand and be enlightened.
