Health insurance in Thailand

Whatever your situation and the reason for your stay in Thailand for more or less time: a new position, a new job opportunity, an internship, a university exchange or simply a vacation, it is important to think about to make sure. What do you need to know about the health system in Thailand?

Before you left for Thailand, have you thought about taking out Travel Insurance in Thailand? Mondassur allows you to cover all your risks (health, repatriation, luggage…) by choosing international health insurance customized and adapted to all your needs.


The health system in Thailand

The establishment of a universal social security system is very recent in Thailand. The country became interested in social protection in the late 1960s and it was not until the 2000s that a universal health system was born. Today, while some private insurance covers some very wealthy Thai families, this remains a marginal phenomenon and almost the entire population is taken care of by the national public system. This plan is open to you if you become a Thai resident and contribute to the plan but still has many loopholes today.

Do I need health insurance in Thailand?

Whether you are a simple traveller, detached or expatriate: we strongly advise you to take out private Thailand insurance. Depending on the region of the country where you live, not all health facilities are of high quality and are often far removed from the European standards we know. As a traveller, you have no opening of rights to social protection in the country. It is therefore very important to take out Thailand insurance before you leave so you don’t end up without coverage. We also advise expatriate residents in Thailand to choose international health insurance. This will allow them to benefit from repatriation insurance, civil liability and also to be able to seek treatment in institutions other than public hospitals and clinics, which sometimes provide lower quality care. It has become since 2019 an obligation to take out a health insurance for Thailand for persons over 50 years old, specifically pensioners to apply for O-A visa.
