Travel Insurance

If you have just started with Medicare coverage, it may mean that have recently retired and you're ready to hit the road and spend more time traveling!

 

Congrats.

 

If you are planning to set sail to foreign countries, this section is for you!

 

If, on the other hand, you plan to see what the United States has to offer, you can stop reading now.

 

Domestic travel will be covered in the sections about Medigap and Medicare Advantage (especially the HMO vs. PPO section in regards to MA plans).

 

Now that we have gotten that disclaimer out of the way, let's start discussing how to protect yourself while sight seeing.  

How Does Medicare Cover Travel?

Coming Soon

Medicare will cover health care in a foreign hospital if you live in the United States and have a medical emergency, but the nearest foreign hospital is closer to you than the nearest U.S. hospital

Medigap and Travel

Coming Soon

Standard Medigap Plans C, D, F, G, M, and N provide foreign travel emergency health care coverage when you travel outside the U.S.  Foreign travel emergency coverage with Medigap policies has a lifetime limit of $50,000. We suggest frequent travelers purchase MedJet assist, trip insurance, etc.

Medicare Advantage and Travel

Coming Soon

If you are frequent travelers or just don’t want to deal with any hassles nor things falling through the cracks, purchase a MedJet assist membership.  BROCHURE

You can also rely on purchasing trip insurance as you travel or on credit cards (such as American Express) that might offer coverage. The devil is in the details, however, so be aware of what you are purchasing.
