We’ve teamed up with Connexion Insurance Solutions to provide you answers to some of the frequently-asked-questions patients ask about Medicare. Each month we’ll publish an article or series of questions that are commonly asked about Medicare.

What Should I Know About Medicare Health Coverage When Traveling Abroad?

Medicare coverage outside the United States is limited, and in most situations, Medicare won’t pay for health care or supplies you get outside the country. However, some Medicare Advantage plans may provide additional coverage when you are traveling abroad. Unless you are already covered under other insurance, it may be in your best interest to look into international travel medical insurance. International medical insurance is typically affordable and often includes extensive coverage including air ambulance, doctor bills, and diagnostic services. To learn more about coverage options available to you, contact your insurance producer or Connexion Insurance Solutions (1-877-217-3279) or email MAQuestions@ConnexionInsurance.com.
