Prime Minister Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha is concerned with how foreign patients have been ripped off by Thai hospitals.

According to Government spokesman Yongyuth Mayalarp, the Prime Minister has been aware of complaints related to inordinately high medical bills local private hospitals have collected from foreign patients, and he has been worried about such situations.

PM Prayut has accordingly instructed all related agencies to launch an investigation and identify the solution to this problem, Mr. Yongyuth said.

Three agencies are to take part in the process, including the Medical Council of Thailand, the Health Ministry and the Internal Trade Department, he added.

All of them will hold a discussion to determine the medical fees that are fair to both patients and hospitals and also to work on the possible amendment of related rules and regulations before reporting the results to the Cabinet.
