This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.
Lol, I got Miller fisher syndrome while I was in Cambodia without insurance. The only hospital that had ivig in Cambodia was royal Phnom Penh and they wanted 1k a bottle. I went to Vietnam where the price was 170. So yeah, get insurance, one that will pay for a hospital outside of Cambodia if needed. A 450 dollar ambulance to Vietnam saved me ~80k.
I was recently looking at expat health insurance. Nothing came in under about $200/month. It's crazy considering travel insurance only costs AUD $700/year. And tourists are much more likely than expats to partake in risky activities, IMO.
All I want is emergency and medevac cover in case of a serious injury or illness. But no-one seems to offer that. Big gap in the market? Maybe there is an opportunity there for one of the insurers?
