Southeast Insurance is offering a health insurance plan for foreigners holding O-A and O-X visas who are more than 50 years of age and wish to apply for renewal of visa for residency in Thailand.

"We are ready to take care and provide premium health coverage at over 293 hospitals," Chiravuthi Bunyasiri, managing director of Southeast Insurance Pcl, said.

“Southeast is ready to support the policies of the government by launching our long-stay-visa insurance plan for retirement visa holders for both one-year temporary stay [non-immigrant visa O-A] and 10-year long-stay [non-immigrant visa O-X]," Chiravuthi said.

"For O-A visa holders, the plan is ideal for foreigners who travel to Thailand for short-term medical tourism or for other health services such as health recovery or wellness purposes. For O-X visa holders, the plan is tailored for foreign business persons who travelled to Thailand for work who had entered into transactions i.e. purchase of condominiums, vehicles etc. Both types of visa holders are required to renew their visas annually. Considering their health risks, the plan offers protection throughout the period of their stay in Thailand with not less than Bt40,000 out-patient treatment expenses and not less than Bt400,000 for in-patient treatment expenses,” Chiravuthi added.

Southeast Insurance is one of the companies collaborating with Thai General Insurance Association in the campaign for foreign tourists residing in Thailand with O-A and O-X visas.

The insurance plan for foreigners provides comprehensive service through a network of more than 293 hospitals, Southeast Insurance said. The plan covers in-patient treatment at hospitals or medical facilities from accidents and illnesses with maximum expenses of Bt500,000 per year and Bt45,000 per year for out-patient treatment along with Bt100,000 for emergency.

The policy can be purchased at the website of Thai General Insurance Association: longstay.tgia.org. For holders of health insurance of an international company, the insured amount shall not be less than the amount of health insurance required in Thailand.
