Health insurance marketing

A look at the different aspects of health insurance policies in Thailand

Health insurance here in Thailand, as a rule, is much cheaper and much simpler than the health insurance most expats are probably used to.

The medical world is changing

More expensive health insurance premiums can mean better equipment

Things keep changing in the field of medical care - and that means that costs keep increasing. The good news, though, is that much of the increase in cost is due to the hospitals buying new and improved test equipment to allow them to quickly spot and diagnose medical problems that would have previously been missed.

Who's to blame?

Always understand the terms and conditions of a health insurance policy

I often read complaints about the standard exclusions found in the terms and conditions (T&C) of a particular insurance company's policy. What the complainers don't realize is that these exclusions are in all health insurance policies.

How did they know?

When hospitals sharing information can prove costly

Recently, someone sent me an e-mail asking me if health insurance companies and hospitals in Thailand share information among themselves without permission from the patient.

Tell it to the OIC

There's a new sheriff in town

Being a stranger in a strange land causes many expats to become a bit paranoid at times. This can be especially true when considering the purchase of health and accident insurance in Thailand. Whom can you trust? What are the "hidden" exclusions that health insurers can use to get out of paying your claim?

Buying hospital inpatient (IPD) coverage in Thailand

The 5 areas of health insurance coverage that you should be aware of

Most medical insurance plans sold in Thailand, including those packaged with life insurance policies, focus on providing basic hospital Inpatient (IPD) coverage.

Health cover for existing medical problems

Is it possible to get insurance to cover treatment of an existing problem?

Iit still bothers me that many people with existing medical problems can't get insurance to help cover the treatment of medical problems. But, there are some options.

What about high blood pressure?

Always be 'up front' with your health insurer about high blood pressure

Last year we had a couple of fairly recent applicants get hospitalized. Their hospitalization had something to do with their history of hypertension.

Life insurance for savings or family protection

A detailed look at what life insurance is all about

I strongly believe that life insurance should primarily be purchased to guarantee financial security for loved ones, to cover payment of a debt (house purchase) or guarantee continuation of a business should an owner/partner die unexpectedly.

Are the health insurance policies truly for you?

The medical insurance plans being offered through the Group were selected because they provide good adequate medical coverage for most medical needs in Thailand at an affordable cost for teachers (under age 60).
