FOREIGNERS COMING TO THAILAND NEED TO MAKE SURE THEY HAVE

A HOSPTAL CARD SHOULD THEY SUFFER IN THE COUNTRY AND WANT TO GO TO THEIR FAVOURITE
HOSPITAL

 

US TODAY FOR DETAILS

Many foreigners come to Thailand and live on their pensions but have zero savings and live month by month. Most have nothing back home and rely on the pensions for their living They never think to put in place for old age or for their next of kin or for sickness. This means that their Thai wife and kids suffer and its sad to see. It happens all the time in Thailand and hospitals even are given the task of dispossing of the bodies themselves due to no funds. We were told in August 2017 of 3 foreigners IN CHIANGMAI who left nothing for their thai wives and also had no funds to pay for their burial costs.

The other scenario is that family back home do not wish to become involved in repatriation of the body and outstanding fees. This is happening more today as the costs involved include paying for outstanding hospital charges as well as travel costs etc. The Embassy will not pay for this as well so its up to you to do something about it while you are here. Do not rely on your friends who may not be able to support you when in need.

What a foreigners should do. Make sure you have a Will and in Thailand this can be registered.

Your fridge is one place that is inpected. Put your next of kin and contact details on paper and stick on your fridge.

Make sure your wife, partner is aware of what must be done if something happens and who to contact.

 

If you get sick make sure you have good Insurance otherwise costs can go up. If you need ICU care in Ram hospital in Chiangmai the costs are around 10,000 baht per day. Everything you eat, drink, medicines and care come under this fee. Its not cheap and other hospitals in Chiangmai may charge less but its still baht one has to pay and this is normally in advance payment. The Hospital charges around 5000baht to cremate the body and the storage fees to hold the body are 500 baht per day as at 2017
