B30 medical scheme: Public urged to update records

PHUKET: The Provincial Public Health Office (PHO) is to start a public information drive, urging people to update their house registration documents (tabien baan) immediately. “This is important because the budget Phuket will get for the 30-baht scheme will depend on how many people are registered as living in the province,” said Dr Boonrieng Chuchaisaengrat, Chief of the PHO. He made his remarks at a meeting of health and hospital officials, at which participants discussed how the 30-baht medical treatment scheme could be made more effective by updating the government’s tabien baan records. The chairman of the meeting, Deputy Provincial Governor Sumeth Chailerdwanitkul, said, “People living in the Muang and Thalang Districts can easily update their records as these two districts can make the changes online.” The instant update costs 30 baht. Representatives of both Mission Hospital and the Bangkok Phuket Hospital gave the scheme their backing in principle but said they need more details before they could decide whether to take part or not. Those considering joining the 30-baht scheme may call 2111330, 222913-4, Ext. 201 or 203, or 01-6065347 for more information.
