MRI and Hospital costs

Recommended Posts

It may be of interest to some MRI costs at Chulalongkorn, for foreigners remain constant from eighteen months ago

 

I am scheduled in Dec, for monitoring,  Two MRI s each 8000 Bht, Contrast 2500 Bht, upper abdomen, and separate lower abdomen

 

These will also be at the new facility, the state of the art and most up to date in Thailand

 

Personally I believe Chulalongkorn is a world class facility, at very affordable costs (queues and waiting time ignored)

So you are saying prices have remained the same even after the order for government hospitals to increase fees for foreigners went into place a few days ago ? I had bloodwork and scans done there last year and will do the same tests next month so are you saying that prices will be the same for me next month as they were a year ago ?

As has been mentioned in the relevant threads the prices in that order are well below prices currently charged to both Thais and foreigners.

 

there seems to be a complete disconnect between prices in these MoPH issuances and actual prices.

 

To conform with what the MoPH put out the hospitals would have to lower their prices and that isn't going to happen.

I max out the time between routine tests, MRIs, to reduce costs, also if and when either cancer return likely to do nothing, so do I really want to know

 

I have already opted for no more chemo, and turned down last colonoscopy,  but keep up to date on routine blood tests,(again at very good prices) and am registered with local palliative care, and guaranteed no pain, my body donated to Chula, and paper work on that, in order

 

Chulalongkorn probably the top, and most up to date facility, they have spent billions on the new particle radiation facility

When you say "there" are you referring to Chulalongkorn, because I have seen no significant price increases there, BUT i do not check the detail, I am under four specialists Chula, still only around 350/600 Bhat for consultations with the very tops, except Cuba probably no where else in the world will give these prices

 

Same man at Bumrungrad a very different story, but even there initial consultations not so expensive

 

If you can not get to doctor at Chula go to say Bumrungrad, for consultation, be nice to the doctor, and say you have little money, and he may switch you to Chula, thats how I got onto the books at Chula, I have dinner with all my consultants from time to time

 

I see no reason why you should experience significant price increases, but you will find out in a month, good luck, BUT in all honesty I do not know, if worried ask in advance, I always do

 

A small irritation is some times waiting up to 4/5 hrs for scheduled appointment, but with experience can often beat the queues with the right moves, knowing the nurses also helps

 

The Cafeteria at Chula also very good
