Need treatment? Choose the right hospital for you

With our plans you can get treatment in any hospital in Thailand. You’ll be able to benefit from our AXA Select hospital network, where we can pay the costs for you. Our network includes hospitals that are popular with expats like the Samitivej Hospitals in Bangkok and the extensive range of facilities throughout the rest of Thailand run by the Bangkok Hospital Group. Or, if you’d prefer to visit a hospital outside our network just let us know, we can talk to the hospital to see if we can pay them directly or we’ll pay you back.

We’ve got you covered in an emergency

If you can’t get the emergency care you need locally, we’ll arrange for you to be evacuated to the nearest medical facility – whether that’s a short drive or an international flight away. And then when you’re ready, we’ll get you back again.

With varying costs depending on the destination, it’s good to know if you need it, we’ll cover the cost, no matter which level of cover you choose.

Avoid the waiting lists

Hospitals in Thailand offer a very good standard of care, with people travelling from all over for treatment. Like other countries, there are both private and public hospitals.  The Thai public hospitals often have long waiting times and the care isn’t always what expats would expect. Many expats choose to use private hospitals with shorter waiting times and an international standard of care. And with our health plans we’ll pay for any treatment covered on your plan, whether it’s public or private.

Short term cover

Need cover for 3 to 11 months?

If you’re living or working internationally for less than a year, take a look at our short term health insurance plan. It gives you all the benefits of our Standard cover level, but for a shorter time. So whether you’re only away for a few months, still weighing up your options or you want cover while you apply for your local state healthcare system, our short term plan could be ideal.

Virtual doctor service

Online doctor consultation and prescription service

Need to talk to a doctor but don’t speak the local language? Or just struggling to find time for that appointment in your busy schedule? When you live or work abroad, accessing healthcare isn’t always easy.  But with our new online doctor service, now available as part of our international health plans, you can speak to an experienced, internationally qualified doctor - at a time and place that suits you.

*Lines are open Monday to Friday, 8am-5pm (GMT time).

Calls may recorded and/or monitored for quality assurance, training and as a record of the conversation.
