It's only official once published in the Royal Gazette and then Immigration/MFA have to put a mechanism in place to issue these new visa categories.

 

From the latest information it said "one has to apply via a TAT liaison company similar to the way it works with Thailand Elite" so I'm sure they must work on opening an administration office to facilitate these applications.

The company has been in existence since 2001. See: http://www.thailongstay.co.th/

From their about us page. 

"The Thailand Longstay Company was established in 2001 with the endorsement of the Thai Royal Government to support long stay tourism. As the Tourism Authority of Thailand is a major shareholder of the company, we aim to provide the best services to retired expatriates to promote the tourism industry of the Kingdom of Thailand."

It was mostly setup to promote retirement extensions and started about the same time the OA visa did.

See their our services page.

How relevant might their MOU with the Immigration Bureau now be in the light of the mandatory health insurance requirement for original OA visa holders (not to mention the various other changes relating to retirement extensions which have been made since 2001)?

Not published in government gazette yet

It will not be published there since it was only approved in principle and it has not been done as a ministerial order yet.
