Officials conduct surprise inspections of medical charges at private hospitals in Bangkok

BANGKOK, 22 May 2015 (NNT) – Director-General of the Internal Trade Department Boonyarit Kalayanamit led a team of officials to inspect two private hospitals in Bangkok and found they had strictly complied with the regulations regarding the demonstration of treatment fee and medicinal prices.

The two pilot hospitals picked for the inspection were Vibhavadi and Nonthavej. According to Mr.Boonyarit, customers of private hospitals have lawful rights to know treatment fee and other charges by hospitals before making decision whether to buy the medicines.

Thus all private hospitals must show the rate evidently to their customers. Any private hospital failing to do so will be fined of no more than THB10,000.

“Within this week, the Department of Internal Trade will check the display of drug and medical rates at all private hospitals in Bangkok, after which the inspection will move to other hospitals in the provinces,” revealed Mr.Boonyarit.
