Ok, I've heard several of you guys emphasize the importance of having healthcare coverage while living in Cambodia. So my questions are simple. When you get there, where do you go to find health coverage? Where are the best places? And also, what is the general price for a general 1-year healthcare plan over there?

I don't have any, but this just popped up on another site

I know nothing about them, but you might like to look into it.

I too have never had insurance cover. But residing here, I have been wondering if I should.

It depends on your age, lifestyle and luck. I've lived here for 25+ years without it, but I am old and have prepared an exit plan so as not to let amateurish hospitals feed off my bank account or be a burden to my family.

With you saying exit plan! Is this hopefully to fly to a western country? If so it would depend on the nature of the illness.

I have World Nomads for about AUD700/year, but I understand they don't insure "travellers" for more than two years, so I will try another (1cover maybe) when this one expires next year.

I did enquire about expat insurance and was quoted USD1500/year which is roughly three times the price of World Nomads.

Taabarang, you said you have an exit plan? Good G*d I hope you don't mean you're going to off yourself! You've got my interest now so please tell me what your exit plan is.

What I'm worried about is getting in a traffic accident and getting seriously injured and having to pay a huge amount of $$$ that I might not have. Don't any of you guys worry about something like that happening? I'm 49 years old and relatively healthy as far as I know, lol.

Thanks, Timmy. Yeah, that AUD figure sounds reasonable. I think I'll check it out.
