Day-case treatment now covered

- +

The Office of the Insurance Commission (OIC) plans to issue an announcement extending medical insurance coverage to 21 day-case treatments. 

Secretary-general Pravej Ongartsittigul said the additional benefits would cover health insurance policies bought before the announcement, while policies taken out after the announcement would depend on the individual benefit plan.

Insurance companies will soon be required to absorb healthcare costs for 21 day-case treatments, and these include extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, coronary angiograms and laparoscopic surgery, he said.
