someone please enlighten me as to what insurance everyone is talking about?  Not Travel Insurance, that's for sure.  Does anyone seriously believe that a Thai insurance company would pay up?

Yes they do. My dad lives there and has had quite a few claims on his insurance policy.

 

i lives there and we made a claim through AIA I believe for my sons treatment.

Bt25,000 per day and going on Bt150,000 for the op. Expense for the op may not be that over the top but Bt25,000 per day? Well we all know private hospitals are thieves.😎

When I had my first health insurrance made in Bangkok, the company asked me just to say no to all previous illness.

I asked why they wanted me to lie and they told me that the insurrance companies do not share information so they can not find out.....

Later after 1 year they forgot to renew the insurrance but they did charge my credit card.....

Now I only stick to my Thai social sequirty at a private hospital in BKK. Great free service and free medicine.... 432 Baht/Month

So working in Thailand he now expects free UK NHS treatment. I think there is a criteria for entitlement if you have been out of the UK for some time?high expectations of being British and the "rights" demanded.  Certainly the costs do sound high for daily treatment.... And other hospitals would be less but I suspect moving now maybe difficult. I do feel sorry for this young man and hope he recovers. Pleased to see how Thailand has managed to save his life .... With previous medical conditions there is always a risk .. The dice rolled wrong this time .

Yes - they would. BUPA and several others. I have heard one case that according to the insured they did not pay. but also many cases where they do.

Quite interested in examples of Health Insurance companies in Thailand in not honouring their policies.

Yes, they pay up and then refuse to renew the contract. At least that is what happened to me.

I am actually signing a new contract with AIA today. I hope I never have to use it though.

 

I think it is essential to have medical insurance as you never know when something will happen to you. Only yesterday, was my sister-in-law diagnosed with a brain tumour.

A mate of mine had exactly the same thing happen to him. Preparing to represent his state in a national sporting competition, one day fine the next unable to walk  and subsequently diagnosed with Gullian Barrie syndrome and spent 6 months in intensive care and now 40 years later, still unable to walk.

You may recall Alistair Clarkson, a very fit former AFL footballer, and legendary coach, also had an attack of Gullian Barrie syndrome a few years back. He seems to have made a complete recovery.
