Ben, I know you've only recently joined, but have you thought of doing a search through the forums? A lot of what you'r asking has already been discussed many times before.

They do ask about pre-existing conditions, and in my case - a daily pill for high blood pressure for nearly 30 years - they told me that they wouldn't cover any heart or circulatory issues. In addition they wouldn't discount the insurance premium for the reduced coverage, so I chose to self insure. I keep enough to cover a severe health event in a Thai savings account that doesn't have an ATM card attached. That also makes annual retirement extensions easy, as I always have more than enough seasoned funds in that account to satisfy immigration.

 

For banks I've only used Kasikornbank, and have accounts in Pattaya, upcountry where I used to live, and Rayong where I live now. Very convenient online banking and always helpful staff when I need to visit a branch.

The banks don't so that 1/2 of the question is safe for you.

 

Quick question as you're new, have you actually been to Pattaya or Bangkok?
