Alhamdulillah... She opened her right eye looked at us and smiled today. She was awake for about 15 minutes and then fell back into deep sleep. After 24 days of unconsciousness we finally found a ray of hope. The treatment in Thailand really made a huge difference between life and death.

Thank you all for your support!

Okay here is the process we followed:
We contacted R n R aviation and had to make a deposit of 7 lakh taka initially. The total cost of air ambulance was 22 lakh taka. I had to request the hospital to send letters of acceptance for the patient and request for immediate visa for the accompanying passengers in the air ambulance. The visa was given fairly quickly ( i think two days). The Hospital also dealt directly with the air ambulance company coordinating the transfer from airport runway to the hospital. The transfer cost of the patient from airport to the hospital was included in the contract with air ambulance. Plane landed at Don Muang and my brother had to go through a special immigration process at the Don Muang air port (which is no longer the primary airport in Thailand). The whole thing was not too complicated because the Hospital and the Company took care of everything. We just had to provide the fees and sign the papers.

Per capita US healthcare cost is the highest in the world but the outcomes are not concomitant. The bill my insurance company had to pay for my month in SICU for a similar traumatic brain injury almost eight years ago was about US$850,000. While that included the many procedures I had to undergo and physician and other caregiver costs, a big portion was the cost of the SICU room itself. Thankfully, my copay was only $25.

However, Jadukar, the takeway is with good caregivers and facilities, the prognosis can be very positive. I'm not sure which in hospital your sister-in-law is but I had once an occasion to use the facilities at Bumrungrad at Bangkok and I was very impressed at the quality and service. It compared very favorably to my experiences with the better hospitals back in the US and also in Singapore.

I can attest to Bumrungrad too. While the prices may seem exorbitant, they provide impeccable service in post-operative care, which unfortunately is non-existent in Bangladesh.

I would think if I have to pay for first world prices in healthcare, I would rather do it in Thailand and Singapore in those A-class hospitals than in some of the private establishments here.
