No, there are no numbers that back up the Thai's stated reasons.  yes there are some deadbeat bills out there, but not an enormous amount

The Thais themselves have posted the numbers in articles on other posts.  It was not that much

I have not seen the numbers.. BUT if they are low, why would the Gov. get so involved and mandate med ins. Doesn't make sense to me...

And then there's pre-existing conditions which will never be covered. Personally the chances of me needing a long term hospital stay would pretty much be related to pre-existing. 50kbht + pa wasted on a health policy that I couldn't use. If 'risky' persons, of which I'm one, are to foot these so called unpaid bills how about letting me legally pay into the Thai health system as a requirement for my long stay and of course have the use of the service as a Thai.

Why would the Gov cover high risk foreigners?  That would cost them more than thos that are skipping out on the Med Bills...
