The “30-baht” means that it costs 30 baht per hospital visit for Thais to receive medical treatment. For details of what the scheme covers, please contact the Provincial Health Office (Tel: 212297, 214110 or 211330). Thai nationals may apply for the 30-baht scheme at any government hospital or at the Provincial Health Office in the province where they are registered as living.
