Prices for selected diagnostic Procedures and Surgeries at Bumrungrad and other Hospitals
Note : Ministry of Commerce announced that the central committee on pricing of goods and services’ meeting has agreed to authorise the Department of Internal Trade to implement control measures for pricing of medicine, medical supplies and medical services. This news was first mentioned in January 2019. Hospitals are fighting control over pricing of medications, procedures and medical services. Actually, as of May 2019 less information over pricing is available than was until a few years ago. Bangkok General Hospital seems to be one of the few major hospitals listing prices for many procedures. We did not see any relevant info on the websites of Bumrungrad Hospital, BNH Hospital or Samitivej Hospital.
As for info about the pricing of medication, that is missing. It is well known that private hospitals charge sometimes exorbitant prices for drugs at their pharmacies, when compared with the prices charged at pharmacies outside the hospitals.
We suggest you scroll down till you find the pricing at Bangkok General Hospital. These are prices as quoted in 2019, and can act as a guide for overall medical expenses in Thailand.
