Individuals and families residing in any foreign country are highly recommended to take out private health insurance, particularly when visiting a country that has lower standards of medical care and limited access to facilities.

Expats living in Thailand generally use private health care facilities due to the superior standard of care available over Public healthcare facilities in Thailand, and the fact that Thai private healthcare is considered on par with western standard facilities. While private health care is readily available in Bangkok and Phuket, adequate medical facilities are limited outside these areas and are virtually non existent in remote rural and island locations. In the event of a serious illness or accident, emergency evacuation or repatriation will be required in order to receive the appropriate level or medical care.

The costs involved in covering emergency evacuation, as well as private hospital fees, is highly expensive. Such as, an international medical insurance plan is strongly recommended for expats living in Thailand that includes coverage for emergency evacuation and repatriation services.
