I got my Yellow Housebook many years ago,I think I was one of the first Ex-pats in Surin to get one .  cool1
Many people have posted on Forums over the years that getting one is a waste of time . :o
Well, I've been feeling under the weather for a while now with chest and back pains and a constant heavy feeling on my chest.
I did got to the local Hospital about a month ago but they couldn't find anything wrong.
Anyway I went again today because I still don't feel right and told them I wanted a full check-up. I had a ECG,X rays,Blood-pressure and blood taken for tests.
The Doctor told me my Heart is fine ,my Blood-pressure is normal and my X Rays look fine ( have to wait for the results of the blood test's ) .He seems to thing its a gas problem that is causing my chest jabbing pains  and  general tightness in the chest and back area.
Anyway to cut a long-winded story short ( spot the pun :) ) ,all this treatment was FREE including the Medication/Tablets because I have a YELLOW HOUSEBOOK and attended the hospital in our locale  thumbup

Don't need yellow book. I get free treatment at our local hospital because I am a registered patient there.

I don't have a yellow book. The first time I went there I took passport and wife's house book. Registered and free treatment.

Note... This does not cover you for provincial government hospital.

I do actually get free treatment there too as I am in the Thai Social Security scheme.

When I went a month ago .I forgot my Yellow Housebook and although I am registered there they couldn't find my details so I had to pay for Medication/Tablets. It was only a 100 baht or so no big deal.
I did expect to pay for all the test today but it was a nice surprise to be told it was free. :)
So don't forget lads, get Registered  at your local Hospital  ;)

Each address should have a file at the hospital. When I go now I just tell them my address and they find the file.

It's worth remembering that this only applies to certain levels of treatment. That treatment will also be limited to the facilities available at said hospital. Our local one, bearing in mind only 9kms from town, is nothing more that a clinic.

Most local hospitals will eventually refer you to a bigger and better equipped hospital where treatment will not be free.

Obviously your local Hospital is far better run then ours. :)

Our Local Hospital is a fair size with many departments including Dental and the wife stayed there for 2 week in a isolation ward when she had TB .

My Mil was in Rattanaburi Hospital ( a bigger hospital than our local one ) when she had diabetes problems and even though its a biggish Hospital they sent her all the way to Surin to have another Toe removed ,so yes many local Hospitals are restricted on what services they can offer !

Has anyone had this experience in the government hospital in Buriram city?  They never ask for my yellow book and there is always a bill. Not much and not complaining but if I need to go again I?ll take my book.  I am registered there as well.

I mentioned earlier that treatment at the main provincial hospital will not be free, unless you have personal cover.

Being registered as a previous patient and being registered under your address is different.

Blimey. If Rattanaburi hospital is bigger then your local one must be reasonably small. Our local one has no facilities for in patients. It is purely a clinic in support of the main hospital, as we are situated within Muang District.

At least there is a nice place to eat if you are visiting someone in hospital in Rattanaburi. 555

Mr.  Bob  a native of California recently  visited a Doctor and pharmacy of the out patient department of Buriram Government Hospital after store hours. Minimal wait and a 96 baht bill including pharmacy medication. He has a Yellow House Book, Thai ID and Buriram Government Hospital Patient card. The card and ID are not employment related. Mr. Moses is younger and has  different employment related costs at this hospital.

Mr. Bob also paid 8050 baht for an M.R.I. in 2017 at the Buriram Government Hospital. That may be the same price to all patients for this leased  M.R.I. clinic located on the hospital compound in Buriram.

That's interesting. In 2014 I was told there was no MRI available in Buriram  good to know it is now available here.
