The Public Health Ministry will set up a "medical mediator" group to handle disputes over bill payments for treatment involving foreigners and hospitals in Thailand, Health Minister Pradit Sintawanarong said.
The mediator group will comprise 18 members, from both public and private medical organisations and representatives from Foreign Affairs Ministry, Thai Life Assurance Association and Healthcare Accreditation Institute (Public Organisation).
Sub-committees on finance and technical issues will be appointed to consider disputes. Outside experts will be invited to take part if needed, on a case-by-case basis.
