    The same annual checkup i got at Ram, is done at McCormick Hospital--Ram charges 15,700 baht, McCormick charges 3500 baht!! The doctor was impressive. The cashiers were pain in ass. My international insurance had sent them a pre-authorization a week ahead of my visit--alerting them i was coming. Cashiers tried to make me pay cash repeatedly. I called my case manager in USA while at cashiers--and he emailed them another pre-authorization. They could not find either of them. If i had not kept my email from case manager for pre-authorization, i would have been forced to pay cash. So i am hesitant about going back again. Between the exorbitant cost, and the administration not paying attention to pre-authorization contacts from insurance--i am not sure i will return.
