where else?? are you joking.  phillipines, laos, vietnam, cambodia many latin american countries, anywhere income disparity exists and women have financial problems.

Of course you are correct. I was waiting for the poster to realize that obvious truth as well. He made it sound like the Kingdom is the only place this could happen

If 'pretty woman' was real, they would have married, then 2 years later she would have divorced him and claimed half his assets.

Really? She would wait 2 years?

Things have accelerated since that movie was made!

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."

That's how it should be. Paid national insurance or tax...or not paid...one has contributed to costs already.

Now in effect ???
In Bangkok already over a month. As a diabetic the normal blood tests were 340 THB. Same blood check, not different 3 weeks ago already 1240 THB !!! Same hospital. On my previous bill it said 340. Going for a check up the bill they gave me in August was the same. When paying it was 900 THB more expensive. I showed them the pre billing from August. New price for farangs, they said !!! Go on Thailand, soon it will be bye bye monkey 

banana republic.

Of course have to wonder what happens with a "Thailand" insurance policy the new OA visa folks will have to buy before coming to Thailand. What prices will they get charged?

The NHS does charge non residents for their services, including Brits who have been

out of the UK for a certain period. It is only free for UK citizens, and at the moment those

from the EEA,in a reciprocal agreement, although that is likely to change if there is a 

no deal brexit.

to India?? Come on man....

 

My insurance covers me worldwide, do you think i would stay in a 3rd world country for medical treatment???? 

So that means you would't stay here. The doctors in India by the way are well trained and are qualified to work in most countries around the world.

As an old timer here in Thailand, Why shouldn't farangs pay the correct price at government hospitals? Thais effectively get it for free or 30baht. Why should foreigners expect it to be subsidised, as it clearly has been up to now.

 

Thai government hospitals are run off their feet with Thais...no reason why other than in exceptional circumstances they should have to treat farangs. Let farangs use the private sector, or if they insist on using government hospitals pay the full whack!

 

Come to Thailand as an expat or a visitor, then either expect to pay in full and have the availability to do so, or take out insurance before you arrive!

No sympathy whatsoever for the moaners!

No one at this stage have a downloadable pricelist in English, and how are staff with limited English going to explain the pricing structure that applies to foreigners in the different tier pricing? 

 

If they have already implemented these new pricing structures, why no information available in English? 

So you can't find out how much they are going to rip you off.
