About M-FUND

The M-FUND is a low-cost not-for-profit health protection scheme for migrants in Thailand, created to empower this underserved population to self-establish sustainable access to quality healthcare services. We ultimately aim to extend this service to other migrants and underserved communities in Asia, and create a regional cross-protection scheme of health access and development.​

M-FUND members contribute a low monthly premium of 100 Thai baht (~US$2.8) per person 
(base plan), which covers access to broad quality health care services in a network of partner hospitals and clinics along the Thai border provinces.

How it works

How it works.png
1. M-FUND Community Workers (CW)
give information to migrants in communities.
2. CW enroll members on tablets with
the M-FUND application.
3. A member card with QR code is given to each member.
4. Hospitals identify active members by scanning the QR code. Members receive free care directly billed to M-FUND.

We are expanding...

Since its launch in September 2017, M-FUND has reached more migrants in needs, in more areas. 

M-FUND was launched in Tak province along the Thai-Myanmar border in September 2017. M-FUND now covers most migrants in need in 3 districts of the province. 

Migrants in Tak province requested for coverage of healthcare services to be extended into Myanmar. In August 2019, we extended M-FUND operations into Myawaddy, which is on the Myanmar side of the border. 

Driven by its success in Tak, in August 2019, M-FUND expanded to​ Sakaeo province along the Thai-Cambodian border to offer health protection to migrants living in this area. 

In July 2020, M-FUND was further extended in Sangkhlaburi district of Kanchanaburi province, along the Thai-Myanmar border.

 

In June 2021, also in Kanchanaburi, M-FUND was expanded to Thong Pha Phum district .

As of February 2022, M-FUND has also expanded to Chiang Rai.

M-FUND is constantly growing in order to expand access to healthcare to more migrants in need. We also offer a video call centre to aid migrants in the M-FUND registration process.
