International (Non-Thai Subsidiary) Direct Billing Contracts

International visitors are looking for insurance coverage which can fit into 3 categories:

  • "Intentional" Medical Travel Procedures: Traveling for the explicit purpose of doing a procedure overseas
  • "Accidental" Medical Travel Coverage: While on travel,  you have an accident and need medical coverage
  • Complication Insurance: Insurance in case of a complication resulting from a procedure

There are almost no known insurance companies that support "intentional international medical travel".  This has nothing to do with Bumrungrad International policies – this is entirely the choice of the insurance companies.  In theory, Bumrungrad can support any insurance, as the patient needs to pay first and be reimbursed by the insurance company after the procedure.  So the question is not if we accept the insurance, it is if the insurance company will reimburse you for the procedure.  This is an important distinction to understand.

Many medical insurance policies support “accidental” medical treatment.  For example, if you come to Thailand for business or holiday and have an accident while in the country, many policies will cover your treatment at Bumrungrad International.  Please check with your insurance company for additional details before you travel. 

As with the intentional medical travel coverage, this has nothing to do with Bumrungrad International policy – you need to check with your insurance company for additional details. 

For accidental medical coverage, if your insurance company works with a medical assistance company that we have a contract with (e.g. International SOS, Mondial, etc.) then we can most likely work through them for direct billing.

You can see a list of the :

This is insurance which will cover you in case of an unknown or unexpected complication which happens from an intentional procedure, elective or otherwise.  For example, if you are normal and healthy and choose to have a plastic surgery procedure done, if there complications because of the surgery, you may be able to purchase (before the procedure is done) insurance which can handle this.  However, as another example, if you have diabetes and have an elective surgery performed, and there are complications from the surgery but due to diabetes, the insurance will most likely not cover the cost of the complications.

There are two companies we have worked with in the past for complication insurance.  These can be seen at:

https://www.bumrungrad.com/en/medical-travel-guides/patient-finance-insurance-information

Direct Billing: Direct billing is when we charge the insurance company directly for the cost of your procedure.  Many (not all) of the insurance companies we have contracts with will allow us to do direct billing.  Otherwise, you will need to pay for the procedure first (usually with a deposit), and be reimbursed by your insurance company later. In addition, there may be differences in your plan depending on if you are having an Outpatient or Inpatient procedures.

You can see a list of companies we have direct billing contracts with:

However, please note you must contact your insurance company to determine if your benefits will allow for direct billing, and for what types of procedures.

Reimbursed Billing: For Thai and expat patients, many plans require you to pay first, and be reimbursed later.

Reimbursed billing will be the majority of billing methods for any insurance company we do not have a contract with.

Bumrungrad International has contract with major insurance companies. Please check here for the list of the contracted companies. Always present your insurance card at our Registration. If there is a change of insurance company, please notify us.
Travel insurance provides coverage for medical expenses, for flight accidents, losses incurred while traveling. Please study the coverage types and ensure your policy covers your needs.

For medical travelers, standard travel insurance may not cover complication during or as a result of treatment. Medical tourism complications insurance should be considered. As it is designed for travelers seeking medical treatment internationally. Some policies protect you by covering medical treatment complications that may arise.
 
  1. Contact your insurance company if they will cover treatment overseas.
  2. Check if you have to pay out of pocket and file reimbursement afterwards.
  3. If you have pre-existing condition, confirm with your insurance if the treatment will be covered.
  4. Find out about your deductibles, co-insurance and the maximum amount of medical coverage.
  5. Check hospital website on the list of contracted insurance company. For any inquiry, contact our Third Party Payor department at [email protected]
 

Non-Contracted Insurance

  1. There is no direct billing on OPD visits with non-contracted insurance. Patient will have to pay in full amount. Hospital will provide documents needed and the patient files claim with insurance directly.
  2. For admission, patient pays deposit in full amount as indicate on the Price Estimate Letter prior to / or upon admission. Hospital will coordinate with insurance company to get a letter of guarantee from contracted insurance company or contracted Assistant company. If the hospital does not get the letter of guarantee by the discharge date, patient will be responsible for the full amount and can file claim directly with insurance company for reimbursement. Hospital will refund the patient once we receive the full payment from the contracted insurance company within 30 days.

Contract Insurance

  1. For OPD visit that has direct billing, hospital will either check insurance benefits from insurance website or contact insurance company for letter of guarantee.
  2. For any procedure that needs pre-authorization such as CT/MRI, our Third Party Payor department will contact the insurance company for pre-authorization letter
  3. Patient will be asked to pay a deposit if there is no letter of guarantee from insurance within 48 hours.
  4. If hospital does not get the letter of guarantee on the discharge date, patient will be responsible for the bill in full amount.
  5. The deposit will be refunded if hospital gets the letter of guarantee before or on the discharge date.
  6. Any excess, deductible, co-payment, are the patient’s responsibility.
