Default Medical Insurance

Looking at moving to BKK in 2019. Any thoughts on getting the right Private Health Insurance would be greatly appreciated. We are retiring from the US at 52 yrs old and want to make sure we have the best coverage options. Thanks in advance.

Just search the internet.
I have used AETNA (previously BUPA) for 5 years.

Hey, I'm also moving to Bangkok soon and my partner and I are looking for a health insurance as well. Have u already got some good companies on your mind? We're considering luma health insurance, it seems to have really good coverage but we are still looking. How about u?

You may want to look into GEHA as an option. GEHA treats all your Thai expenses as if you are treated by in-network provider and just file the expenses and the exchange rate on the date the expense occurred. If covers worldwide. If you end up back in US and need treatment, it automatically covers. If you travel around the world, GEHA will cover that too. Just need to file the expense report for each incident.

Pre 65 at the time of claims, then at 65 the premium went sky high so did not renew.
