At least they weren't Amazon resellers.  Seems like a good starting point of people to avoid is those who are too cool to have a mobile phone, almost as bad as the iPhone 13 guys.  The self proclaimed experts on everything Buddha are about as interesting as white pain drying.  I don't mind the stock market experts, because it is too easy for me to tell, who the pretenders are.  

I feel your white pain drying.

It's a no brainer...government mandated all public government/military hospitals to increase their fees for foreigners seeking healthcare...a two tier system...a procedure for a Thai will stay same while expats will pay higher rates for same procedure...

 

Now put in play mandatory healthcare insurance...you might want to quibble about who is required to purchase insurance at this time...later it is almost certain that everyone...all ages will have to show healthcare coverage to obtain visas and extensions...

 

Add the two together...increase cost for those using what was once the cheaper hospitals...mandatory insurance coverage...add a little greed and corruption and "wa-la"...healthcare coverage will send many expats packing...those that stay will pay for the privilege of keep your money in a Thai bank...

 

You can google Thai healthcare for expats...many threads this year...

Agreed. I'm sure my Tricare will be acceptable. As far as military/gov't hospital rates going up -- I guess since I use Bangkok Hospital (private), I won't notice any increase. Still pretty darn cheap compared to the rates charged in US hospitals. My main concern is that Tricare coverage will come in for a haircut from Congress.....
