I would have thought with the millions of tourists flooding Thailand that they would be more of a medical problem then a few hundred expats living here !

Yes, but many expats can't get an insurance because of their age.

I still find this extremely hard to believe as the hospital will never let you leave until paid in full. How do you rack up a bill and then walk away?   All we can do is wait and see what

Err.

Didn't I read yesterday that its been scrapped in the name of promotion of tourism.

That had nothing to do with the proposed mandatory health insurance for people with O-A Visas.

Lots of very creative comments about how to curb this non-payment of health care costs but most important point missed by most - the government just wants to increase the use of cash register to increase the amount of money obtained by anyone who can't avoid the cost - it's a typical approach by a corrupt administration

Another paranoid poster who should move to another country instead of whining about everything.

An easy way to do it (as a mate of mine did recently) is to die.
His good woman had to cough up lots of dosh as he'd been in a govt hosp for more than a month getting treatment for cancer, no insurance, then she had to fund his cremation as well.

That's funny, I know it ain't mean't to be, but I had to laugh. And to think the guy didn't even have the foresight to contribute to the local funeral fund.

How un-caring is that.
