Do you mean Pib?
 
That was in regard to extension of stay, which is another long story still being sorted out.
 
it had nothing to do with re-entry on a re-entry permit.
 
No IO anywhere that I have seen has suggested a need for insurance entering on a re-entry permit.
 
 A re-entry permit refers to an already granted permission to stay.  Entering in one does not give any additional time.  Your permission to stay period remains exactly  the same as it was. As it is an al;ready granted period of stay new requirements don't come into play.
 
New period of permission to stay is generated by a new entry under a still valid visa, or by an extension of stay.  Pib's discussion with CW imm (which may have yielded wrong info, time will tell) was in reference to a future extension of stay.
 
The Police Order explicitly states that already granted periods of stay are unaffected.
 
 

Thanks for that detailed information Sheryl ....

I just checked my OA Visa (multi entry) from 2008....it was issued in Aug 2008 and had to be used  by Aug 2009 (i.e., had a  12 month validity period).    I arrived Thailand Oct 2008....been doing annual retirement extensions of stay ever since. 

So this was my Original Visa issued in The states it has been extended in Thailand thru the years as a Non B and a retirement after I stopped working. Based on the police order (if they follow it) I would not be required to provide insurance ?

include BKK CW Immigration and quite a few of the other Immigration offices around the country.

There are an equal or greater number claiming extensions do not require insurance too. Best to let the dust settle.....

That is a non-o visa not a OA visa.
No need for insurance. Even old OA visas do not need it in IMO.
Thank you very much for your quick reply Joe greatly appreciate it now we just got to see if they invoke the rules based on the police order :-)

So, having the most outstanding medical coverage in the world from the government or civilian company does not help; instead, it must be a high price, low coverage policy from one of the approved Thai insurance companies.

Nobody knows for sure but I don’t think you need one of the high price low coverage policies on the government website. They are just policies that meet the minimum requirements. You could buy a higher value policy from one of the Thai companies. My Pacific Cross agent assured me that my 10,000,000 baht policy meets the requirements though I am waiting to see about that. That does not solve the problem of qualifying a foreign policy but it may make considering a Thai policy more palatable.

I guess you are saying you got the "certificate" by email also....like RRY said.  Both of your always refer to the phone numbers on the Tricare Overseas webpage....I went there....called various numbers and talked to various people about a certificate of coverage.....not to be confused with the letter of enrollment you can easily get. 

 

Each time....they know nothing about a "certificate" of coverage....just the "you are enrolled type letter" a person can easy & quickly get.  I attached a redacted copy....I just download the letter from milConnect.

 

So, please provide the phone number your are calling.  And also, please post a redacted copy of what you received via email to see if what they are really sending you is just the letter like the redacted copy of mine below or an enrollment card available in some cases.  Please give more details what is shown on the "certificate" you received.  Thanks.

Do you mind saying what age group you are in and what your current annual premium is with your Bt10M policy to include confirmation your current policy includes outpatient coverage as it seems some folks buy in-patient coverage only policies as adding on outpatient coverage also drives up the policy cost very significantly.

No I'm not....don't even have a Facebook acct.  Only use the wife's Facebook logon (which she rarely uses) every once in a while to fully view a Facebook page without getting that popup asking a person to signup for Facebook.

It's the outpatient coverage I'm not sure about but my agent keeps saying my policy is more than enough. That is what I am waiting to see about. I'm not in any immediate need yet. I'm on a yearly extension until Nov 2020 so I waiting to see how this all plays out. I'm 63 years old.
