France travel insurance for older US travelers with Medicare coverage

US senior citizens who have Medicare coverage should buy international travel health insurance while traveling outside the United States. Good travel health insurance is required since Medicare offers very limited coverage outside the US. International travel always involves risks. This is especially true for older travelers and given that the costs of medical evacuation and health care outside the United States is expensive, buying good Medicare Supplemental international Travel insurance coverage is prudent.
