Please try to keep up, OP. All Thais can have treatment at a government hospital for 30 baht.

Actually this is untrue.  Please do more self research and post again.

There are the laws.

I many countries the military can only be used under a few limited conditions for anything else than their main job.

I guess, Doctors with military rank, also work in private and public hospitals.

Educate me, my GF has just paid 30 baht for a visit to a government hospital and came back with 2 months' supply of Omeprazole. Free.

I asked you to do your own research as you made the first blanket statement, but as you won't then I will educate you as requested.

 

1) Up to about 5 years ago all Thai people were eligible for the basic 30 baht card, to be used at government hospitals.

If a Thai citizen took up the offer and registered for the scheme, then they are still eligible for their lifetime (or until another scheme replaces it). If they didn't register at that time, then for the past 4-5 years it is impossible to register, and hospital costs must be self paid.

2) Even with the basic 30 baht card not all costs are covered (room for example).

3) A gold card issued to the elderly actually covers all costs 100%.

Hope that clarifies everything for you.

Thank you for the information.

When someone gives me a peremptory instruction on Thai Visa to do something, I don't react well to it when I have countervailing evidence.

Hope that clarifies my attitude for you.

I don't think anyone would complain if army field hospitals were used to treat corona patients. However, I doubt they have enough trained medics to cope with the numbers in badly affected countries.
