Can you just imagine the venom and spitting if the UK came out with a policy that foreigners had to pay at the NHS and natives got it for free. You would be in court before you could say "hang on."

 

Of course, even it would be like that it would not be free for UK tax payers. All UK tax payers will pay, even the ones who never visited a hospital in their life.

 

I know that at least in the EU it is common that students pay different prices for going to university. In The Netherlands Dutch citizens of the country pay about 2000 Euro, EU citizens about 10.000 Euro and not EU citizens about 20.000 Euro a year.

 

The way of thinking is: Dutch citizens already pay all their life for universities, even when they never go there. People from abroad never made that contribution.

 

With hospitals in Thailand you can apply the same way of thinking. The only problem is that they use this as an excuse to scam people with overpriced services instead of asking a fair price.

I went to mission monday and was quoted a crazy price for a small procedure, the price is 5x higher than what i found on this forum from a few years ago and almost 50% more than a decently high class private cosmetic surgery clinic that offers that service on the side.

 

Which is weird since mission has always been really affordable.

Yes all overpriced and then they give the farang a 20% discount so you feel better but you are still paying above normal price!
