The M-FUND is a low-cost not-for-profit health insurance for migrants in Thailand, created to empower this underserved population to self-establish sustainable access to quality health care 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 Bahts (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-Myanmar border.
Over 13,000 migrants have registered as
M-FUND has covered over 10,000 consultations and 2,000 hospital admissions.
16 hospitals and NGO clinics provide quality health care services to M-FUND members

We are expanding...
Since its launch in September 2017, M-FUND has reached more migrants in needs, in more areas.
Migrants in Tak province have wanted coverage of healthcare services to be extended into Myanmar. In August 2019, we have extended M-FUND operations in Myawaddy, on the Myanmar side of the border.
In 2020, M-FUND is looking to add to another milestone by expanding operations along the Thai-Lao border.
M-FUND was launched in Tak province along the Thai-Myanmar border in September 2017. M-FUND covers already most migrants in need in 3 districts of the province.
Driven by its success in Tak, in August 2019, M-FUND expanded to Sakaeo province along the Thai-Cambodia border, to offer health protection to many migrants living in this area.
