Re: Mandatory health insurance for Non O-A visa effective from 31 October

The notice the Embassy sent out is just more confusion as it only states the requirement for a visa applicants, does not state the requirements for an Extension to Stay (EOS). As most of use already have a Visa and will be requesting a EOS, the Embassy should have stated these requirements. Police O...

Re: Warning : Non OA converted to Non O based on retirement

Understand Imm. Office will not accept it as insurance, a few years back used it at Bangkok Hospital. I paid 25% and they sent the rest of the bill to Tricare.

Re: Warning : Non OA converted to Non O based on retirement

Tricare For Life is accepted in Thailand at certain hospitals, Bangkok has 7 hospitals that accept it. Chiang Mai has one and Nonthaburi has 4 hospitals. The last I heard was that Bangkok Hospital Udon was again accepting TRICARE, they had stopped for awhile. https://www.tricare.mil/FindDoctor is a ...

Re: Late Deposits To Bangkok Acount from overseas

I started my retirement pay from DFAS going direct to SCB back in May and haven't had any problems. They use OF 1199-i and it took 2 months to make the change. They emailed me the form, I had the bank sign it then faxed it back to them.

Re: Direct Deposit for US Federal Payments

Was told Thailand is not on their approved list of countries for direct deposit. Sent the Embassy notice to OPM waiting for a response. Was able to get things changed with...
