  1. Thank you for the information. It looks like that answers my question about getting insurance far ahead of moving over, pretty much a no. I am concerned about no coverage for over 75 years of age, is that normal? What happens when you turn 75 in Thailand, are you pretty much on your own?

  3. Hi everyone nice to meet you first time poster here from America. My ultimate future goal is to move to Thailand long term preferably Chiang Mai area for cost and also natural beauty. And yes I have visited that area several times. My plan is to work as much as I can for a few more years until I hit my late 50's. Slowly but surely my body is failing me and I realistically cannot last long enough to collect social security at 62 years of age. I did the numbers and I should have enough saved and invested to last me until then. I am starting to do more research on Thailand expats.
