  1. I plan on retiring in 3 years however I'll be more than several years away from the age of 65 that qualifies me for Medicare. My question is, can a person living half the year in Thailand and the other in another country buy full health coverage in Thailand? I'm in States, I'd be looking at 6,500 USD per year for a US policy. I was told I could buy in Thailand for 2,000. I understand the logistics of having to fly cross 17 hours to have a procedure done if I happen to be in the States and get sick or not being able to fly because I was in a serious auto accident etc.. I'd just like to know if
  2. Is it possible to get the necessary paperwork in Pattaya in order to legally fly a drone in Thailand or must I go to Bangkok to sort it out?
  3. I just received my confirmation email from the SHA plus plus hotel saying I'm all set for the TEST AND GO program. Today, a Thai youtuber said its possible, when December comes around, Thai government could allow double jabbed people into the kingdom with zero days quarantine. Hopefully they chose this route in that it will encourage more tourists to come. But for us who paid for the T.A.G. we'll probably be out some cash. I'll keep the insurance. Maybe change the hotel or just keep it.....if it still included ride from the airport. Just something for you guys to think about.
  4. Yes. To day is the day, they commence the 1 day quarantine for double jabbed tourist. Lets hope it goes smoothly and they powers that be don't panic if covid numbers go up a little. My only concern at this time is, what will happen if someone tests positive on your flight? Will everyone be forced to quarantine and for how long?
  5. I've been double jabbed and made reservations(with option to cancel without charge) for 2 weeks in pattaya January 2022. My question is what are the odds Thailand will fully reopen pattaya.without quarantine or ASQ for new arrivals? I plan on staying in Pattaya the full 2 weeks.
  6. I'm not going to bother with my insurance. In the States, insurance is a huge problem, unless one works for the government, Fire department or Law enforcement. I have the 20/80 plan( I pay 20 dollars and the insurance pays 80), so its not even worth getting a receipt from BKK and file it with my insurance really. In America they charge about 100, 000 dollars for Heart bypass surgery. I'd have to come up with 20,000 dollars out of pocket. In Thailand that same procedure costs about 24,000 total. Medicine is extremely expensive in the States as well. We have citizens, if lucky enough to live cl
  7. Heard the pop and felt the ligament give way. Yes, M.C.L.. A friend from high school, physical therapist now, did the stability test on my knee. When he applied pressure by pushing ankle outward and knee inward, it felt like a table leg not screwed in lol. I told him, that's enough, my MCL is gone. He told me I'm looking at 6 months recovery time if I choose surgery now. ?
  8. Thanks gentlemen. It's a knee. This America insurance refused to pay for a MRI but rather sent me to get a bone xray. I heard my MCL pop, during a sporting activity. What the Hell is a xray going to reveal? lol. I can see retirement far off in the distance and plan on forcing a surgery...one way or another. I just want the MRI to know for sure what I need repaired. 350 is far less than in the U.S. ?
  9. How much would a MRI on a knee cost in Thailand? How long before the results are know? Bangkok.
  10. Just got back and oh how Pattaya has changed...or how the girls have changed, I should say. Never a time I could stroll down WS without getting my arms torn off by cute "Young" girls. Im a couple years into my 50's, no gut and can pass for late 40's easy. But that means very little on WS when there are 20 somethings fit guys willing to spend 5 thousand baht on a young hottie for LT. I had known for a long time Phuket was full of jaded girls but now Pattaya. I'm not saying it's no longer possible to find a willing 20 something but it not fish in a barrel either. LKM, Soi Honey etc are still
  11. Does anyone still use their original bank accounts from their own countries via online banking? Has anyone heard of problems/security issues accessing their home accounts while using internet it Thailand??
  12. A couple girls from my June trip to Pattaya sent me photos. One girl with her mother in their home and another at her mother's grave marker. She just turn 28 and is already without Mom. Has there been a mass exodus from Pattaya so that the girls can pay respect to their mothers? For you guys living with Thai wife/GF what do you do for her on mothers day? just curious.
  13. I don't know of any. But I was involved in a work league and we used the honor system. Using Yahoo, Our commission told everyone to draft their "Keepers" first. We used 2 keepers per team and we just simply used the first two round to grab our prearranged players. After the second round, all players were up for grabs. Maybe if some guys don't want to be present, they can queue their two players so they will be their first 2 players selected. Just have the commissioner create a untouchable list for those present.
  14. I live in the states and have dental insurance. The problem is insurance says implants are cosmetic and won't pay. Everyone I spoke to says to get an implant instead of a bridge. The bridge destroys 2 good teeth to benefit 1 bad tooth. I was going to do the bridge because the insurance would pick up some of the cost. What can I expect to pay for my situation in Thailand?..and its fucked: .... Bone graph, one extraction, two implants, one gum graph and two crowns/caps. My dentist called today to say my 2 tooth Flipper was ready. If this thing looks ok, I can wait it my next trip to see a
