I once went to the hospital in Sri Racha with a friend. Her stomach hurt and the doctor prescribed some medication for her. The bill was 2500 baht. Is this normal for a Thai who works and is probably also insured?
Of course I was allowed to pay the bill myself because the Farang is a millionaire anyway. I thought she would say my insurance paid this back and I only had to pay the difference but none of it.
Later I heard from someone that the Thai has a red card with which he can go to the doctor, because at that price that is still priceless for a Thai. Another rich experience, but a lot poorer.
