Scary Ordeal or Interesting Experience?

Thailand's medical system is very different from our own. The high end is very high indeed, with most care of much higher quality than we're accustomed to at home. Service is much quicker, waiting times to see foreign-trained specialists much shorter (usually 20 minutes, without an appointment).

BONUS: Premium Care at Bargain Rates

I was quoted $7,000 for 2 eye operations in California so I went to Thailand instead.  I had the vacation of a lifetime (traveled all over SE Asia), completed the surgeries, came home with perfect eyesight and still had $1,000 in my pocket. I'll tell you how you can, too. Even help you.

What Other People Think...

  • If you're planning to live in Thailand and care about your health (and bank account) I urge you to read this book from cover to cover.

    I did, and – quite unexpectedly – had to deal with a medical emergency (the result of delaying minor surgery too long) three months after I arrived. Fortunately, after I'd read the book I contacted Dr. Roberts, the author, who put me in touch with an insurance broker who speaks perfect Thai and English and who was able to get me covered by a local carrier...for peanuts compared to what I was paying at home. – Eric Eiser

Get Smart About Your Health

Even if you don't plan to get health coverage in Thailand this book will be of immense help: its self-insurance chapter is funny, gripping and extremely useful: it tells you how to get accident coverage from your bank (for peanuts) and where to get surgery for a few hundred dollars.
