Frequently Asked Questions

What is the period of insurance that I should buy?

The period of insurance required depends on the intended duration of stay in Thailand and the type of visa being applied for and the Embassy of each country. Please, confirm with your local Thai Consulate/Embassy the specific case.

If I’m tested positive for COVID-19 but I don’t have any symptoms. Will AXA pay for the medical expense?

Yes, AXA will cover the medical expense incurred based on medical necessity if you’re tested positive for COVID-19 regardless of the showing of symptoms.

  1. in accordance with the diagnosis and treatment for such illness or injury of the patient;
  2. in accordance with the medical indication of the current medical standard;
  3. not primarily for the convenience of the patient or his/her family or treatment provider solely; and
  4. in accordance with the suitable standard of patient care based on the necessity of injury or sickness of the patient

In the determination of Medical Necessity, AXA also follows the guideline published by the Ministry of Public Health.

The display of symptoms is not the only indicator used by AXA in the determination of Medical Necessity. If the medical expense incurred is medically necessary, then AXA will cover it even if there are no symptoms. Similarly, a COVID19 test result is not the only indicator used by AXA in the determination of Medical Necessity. If the medical expense incurred is medically necessary, then AXA will cover even if the first COVID19 test result is later determined as a false positive.

Does Sawasdee Thailand cover for COVID-19 only?

No, Sawasdee Thailand also provides coverage for medical expenses from the accident, sickness including COVID-19 which is not a pre-existing condition. The company will cover the cost of treatment incurred based on medical necessity.

I am in Thailand. Can I buy Sawasdee Thailand?

No. If you are already in Thailand, you are not entitled to buy Sawasdee Thailand. You can only buy Sawasdee Thailand only if you are physically outside of Thailand at the time of policy purchase.

What are the options available for the duration of coverage?

You can choose to purchase a policy of 30, 60, 90, 180, 270, and 365 days. If the exact number of days of coverage that you are looking for is not available, please purchase the next available option. e.g. if you require cover for 100 days, please choose the option of 180 days.

Can I change my policy start date?

Yes, you can change the start date to an earlier or a later date as long as you are still abroad and your original policy start date has not started. You must make the request to AXA before the original policy start (in case of postponing the start date) or before the new policy start date (in case of advancing the start date). Please allow 1-3 working days to receive the revised policy documents.
