Over 80 on OA Extensions for 14 years. Chiang Mai.

At this time the only viable work around seems to be to start over using non immigrant O visa entry (either visa from other country and enter or exit/return and apply for change to non immigrant for 2,000 baht and show of financials).   With time one would hope that a better solution might be found - but from the still uncorrected on-line 90 day reporting not being available to those without a recent entry not too sure.

If you must be insured, that is a difficult situation.

 

One thought is to pursuade one of the insurers to write a policy for the required amount, with a first risk amount that is similar, ( for a nominal fee. )

Then one would be insured !!

What has this got to do with the OP's question?   

The we may not get a quick resolution - still none except exit/enter for the 90 day on-line reporting and they have had years to fix that.

Oh dear,  can someone clarify this one please.

 

My understanding is that "health Insurance" is only needed for new O-A visa after 31 October 2019 to gain entry into Thailand.   And,   for those who are currently on "extensions" (and started with 0-A) health insurance is not required at this time?

This gentleman who is 80 yrs (sirwilly) has no chance of getting health insurance in Thailand from what I have read.

 

Perhaps Ubon Joe can clarify this one?

Why would there be any "special provisions" for you? They require over 50's to have health insurance on retirement visas and for very good reason. They don't want unpaid hospital bills by any uninsured aging population who are most at risk. You either need to get it or leave Thailand when they reject your extension and go back to your home country.

Perhaps see a visa agent.

What does a visa agent have to do with needing the required health insurance?
