It is current YWAM Thailand policy that all long-term staff, as well as short-term volunteers, have health insurance prior to their arrival. While it is true that health care within Thailand is cheap when compared to the West, there have been instances where a family or individual came down with a serious health issue that required extensive treatment. It is during situations like these, that having health insurance is a much needed and appreciated blessing.
Further details on how much to budget per month can be found in the attached Budget document. For further information, please contact Talent Trust at - http://www.talent-trust.com.
