Government hospitals price increase up to almost 400% from 30. 9. 2019

Recommended Posts

When I went to school, double was not 400%.

Still a lot cheaper than rip off private hospitals.

The prices increases up to almost 400% from TODAYS prices. There is general price increases from 30 september too so from the new general prices the price foreigners have to pay is doubled. Todays prices are marked with green background in the picture. The percent increase calulated from today prices is printed with red letters. Got it now?

Actually now the root canal treatment will be cheaper to do in Norway than in Thailand government hospitals and the prices in private dental clinics in thailand for the root canal treatment are currently lower than the new prices that will go into effect 30.9.2019.

Don't worry, they will swiftly apply the same % increases to their current prices.

Goodbye to yet one more reason to visit Thailand.

If you're just a visitor, then get dental work done at home where it's cheaper. No need to come to Thailand to see a dentist.

When I went to school the teacher would make me do my work again if I got the answer wrong.

Colonoscopy is only ฿4000 for foreigners.

 

Would be 30-50x as much in the US.

Does that include the flight, hotel and food costs?

You somehow managed to misunderstand a very simple sentence.

Some people, when planning their vacation, welcome the opportunity to get dental work done for cheaper than they would pay at home. If a particular destination offers that, it counts as an additional reason to choose that destination, as opposed to some other destination that does not. Often, the savings help them to justify getting a more expensive air ticket to Thailand rather than, say, Spain.

If Thailand are massively increasing those prices, it eliminates that particular advantage. Precisely as I said: "Goodbye to yet one more reason to visit Thailand".

At no point did I say that getting dental work done was the sole reason why a particular individual would visit Thailand but it would, of course, be a factor in their decision.

I hope this expanded explanation assisted you in grasping the simple concepts conveyed in that sentence. I wish you the best of luck in your reading journey.

 

the dental work in gov hospitals are so bad that your cheap Chinese resin filling fall out before you reach home.

Does this apply only to dental work at gov't hospitals, or to other procedures?
