In the event of sickness or injury, if it is necessary that the insured person (patient) may be taken to other hospital for continuing diagnosis or treatment, reimbursement for transportation costs and further expenses of medical treatment may be allowed by the Social Security Office.
When the insured patient is in the same provincial area, if a motor car or an ambulance is used, additional reimbursement for actual expenses may be reimbursed but not exceeding Baht 500 per reimbursement. However, if a hired vehicle, a private transport or other vehicle is used, a lump sum reimbursement at the rate of Baht 300 per reimbursement may be paid. And if it is in other province, the Zone Office of Social Security may pay an extra reimbursement at Baht 6 per kilometer.
