I have received the docs for the 2014-2015 GTR Group Health Insurance Policy.
Everyone should have their cards for use by now.

It has been brought to my attention that at 65 years of age, each individual's coverage is reviewed by the insurance company.
Their policy may or may not be renewed.
There should be some other options available & we are exploring these. Stay tuned.

Here is the recommended option - Wealthy Healthy - compared to the current GTR Group Health Insurance Policy

If you're riding around uninsured, please do yourself & family a favour - get insured.
The GTR group health insurance does not require a medical examination, you simply fill out the form with a medical statement & your covered.
Get in before 60 & you can stay covered until at least 65, subject to review.
If that does not work, then there is an option for private health insurance with the Wealthy Healthy policy up until 80 years of age.
Cheers.

Can I apply for this insurance? It seems a pretty good deal.

I will reply for David as I told him I would update some info anyway. Just send an email to the link in the above post saying you want to apply and learned of the insurance through GT Rider. The sales director will email you an application and answer any questions you may have. I also received a number of quotes from another broker who quoted many different companies. The rates were all at least 50 percent higher than the above.

THOSE SEEKING THE WEALTH HEALTHY PLAN TAKE NOTE!

Look carefully at the above chart. You must apply no later than 65 years of age. The coverage from age 66+ is for RENEWALS ONLY! I just sent in an application and it takes 5-7 days for approval I am told. You can sign up for a plan at 65 and you have the option to increase or decrease the plan coverage when you later renew. I chose a lower coverage now and will plan to raise the coverage when I am more likely to need it. Of course, they have the right to refuse your renewal.

Again to be clear. If you don't enroll before age 66 you cannot purchase the insurance!

Just  a reminder that its renewal time & it is time to pay up to continue being insured.

The annual premium has increased because of a couple of big claims, myself included, but if you want to be covered riding your motorbike around in the region the GTR policy is still a good one with SOS emergency evacuation.

For any enquiries please contact the insurance broker

Being 47 the premiums are less.. If you are older the group deal may be attractive.

Make sure you get medivac outside of Thailand.. If you are planning on riding around the region.
Unfortunately.. It is only back to Thailand.. Not your " Home " country.. but fair enough.. Understand why.

Better to end up in Bangkok and then have it worked out from there...

Cheers

David, Is there a GTR group plan with this company or is it individual?

The original GTR Group Policy is with Thai Health Insurance & this was set up via the late Tony Dabbs at E Insurance. Just before Tony died he joined forces with BSI Broker so that the policy still goes via them. However I note that there have been multiple staff changes at BSI which has been difficult to follow at times.

In 2021 GTR changed brokers from BSI to Cnx Insure, a local Chiang Mai Expat broker with an office in Chiang Mai, where you may have a face to face chat about your insurance needs.

If you are under 60 years of age get in now & get yourself covered, because once you are over 60 it becomes difficult & expensive. Use the GTR Group Policy for this! Premiums for private insurance skyrocket once you are over 60, but this does not happen with the GTR group policy. At 65 years policy renewals are reviewed by the Insurance Company.
If you want to join the GTR Group Insurance you need to contact Cnx Insure.

Just a note to say that my recent knee replacement was "fully" covered by the GTR Group Insurance policy.
The policy with Thai Health Insurance paid for 90% of the bill.

You can read about it here on GTR

A Knee Replacement & The Road To Recovery


This policy we have works & is really good, especially when it includes SOS Emergency evacuation from overseas - when you are riding next door in Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam,. Myanmar you are covered.
You are covered with his company here

บริษัท ไทยประกันสุขภาพ จำกัด (มหาชน) :: Thai Health Insurance Public Company Limited

Under this policy

Looks like we have 12 guys in the GTR Group Health Insurance Policy this time round.
7 guys in Plan 1
2 guys in Plan 3
1 guy in Plan 5
2 guys in Plan 6​

You should all have your cards by now.

Good luck guys & I hope you don't need them - all stay in good health & don't have accidents.

Well, I hope this is the right place to ask, otherwise David you move it.

I crushed recently with the scooter, got the usual bruises and so on. Get up on my feet, as usual a lot of helpful locals around, someone called the EMS, but they didn't showed up in a while, so a local brought me down to Chiang Saen Gov Hospital. They took care of my bruises, and took two X-Rays, as my Index-Finger was displaced, that’s when they discovered also a hair crack on the back of my hand. They also stabilised my hand, and/or finger. All I paid there was 580 bath, including the X-Rays.

Now because of those stupid, insurance policies, allowing only specific hospitals, I went to Overbrook in C.Rai. and mostly they redo all of the bandages C. Saen did. They made another X-Ray, but from the collarbone, as I had pretty much bruises on it, but I could move it quite well. It took a while until the doc came in, apparently he’s the bone specialist, and they call him in off duty, nothing I had asked for actually. However, I was pretty much fixed up around 11-12pm. But being in C. Rai without any transport, I stayed there overnight @ 2500 for the room. My bill run up to something around 22000, pretty sure C.Saen could have managed that for 2200. However, the insurance covered mostly everything, but 350 bath, when I looked at home what the 350 was it said "others" :worried:


My big question now is, I got an appointment on 7th Jan for checking my crack on my hand, and maybe remove the bandage,eventually checking that finger. First, I don’t really want to make the journey. Second, I don’t really want them extract another fortune out of the insurance fund, if they cover after treatment at all. I guess the smart thing to do is to ask my local hospital for an X-Ray, and if nothing shows, just get off the bandage. Your opinions?
