Hua Hin: Cancer sufferer still fighting for justice - so that others won't be conned
A Dutch man in a long running saga over a series of medical bills from a hospital in Hua Hin in 2015 - 2016 is still pursuing the case so that other foreigners won't get conned.
The health authorities already found in favor of Edwin Buse, now 50, after a hospital in Hua Hin charged him an extra 300 baht (or 15% more) per visit for treatment for colon cancer.
The authorities ordered the hospital to return 12,746 baht to Mr Buse, a former train engineer who now tends goats in Klong Wan district of Prachuap Khiri Khan.
He said in January that this was still not enough after he made 14 visits and got other treatment.
Mr Buse has refused to accept the payout. Yesterday he went to meet with Pol Lt-Col Chaiwiwat Janthorn of the Hua Hin police to make a formal complaint.
Mr Buse said that he had been treated for an extra 50 baht a time though he didn't specify what hospital. That was fine.
He said that it was not about the money - that can be paid later - it was about the principle of a hospital overcharging a foreigner and doing what they please despite health department regulations.
He intends to keep fighting so that others are not forced to pay irregular charges in this manner.
