Can you get health insurance if you smoke weed?

Although marijuana is now being openly sold in Thailand, health insurance coverage for weed smokers is still debatable.

While you may prefer not to disclose your drug usage, remember that it’s never a good idea to lie or withhold information on an insurance application form.


Does smoking affect health insurance?

Whether you smoke occasionally or are a chain smoker, you might be wondering if this habit will affect your health insurance.

To be considered a non-smoker by health insurers, you must have given up smoking for at least 2 years. Honesty is expected on health insurance application forms so you will need to make your smoker status clear.
