Senior US citizens travelling overseas and Medicare Coverage

US senior citizens must be well informed about the International travel insurance coverage limitations of Medicare while outside the US. As Medicare is an US federal health insurance program for senior citizens over 65 years, it will not offer medical coverage outside the US except when they are on cruise with the waters connecting the US states. This is offered by the Medicare Part B (medical insurance) plan.

In case you are in a foreign country and need coverage for inpatient hospital expenses, doctor visits, ambulance services, or dialysis, Medicare may pay for the expenses under these conditions.

  • If you get admitted to a foreign hospital which is closer than a US hospital that can treat your emergency medical condition.
  • If you get admitted to a Canadian hospital which can treat your medical emergency while travelling between Alaska and any other state and you are crossing Canada.
  • If you get admitted to a hospital nearest to where you are staying which can treat you under emergency medical condition.

International travel insurance for US citizens enrolled in Medicare

When you are on a ship and need coverage, Medicare will not pay for health care services when the ship is more than 6 hours away from the US port. The Medicare prescription drugs plan don't offer coverage for the drugs purchased outside the United States. All the 50 US states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and American Samoa are considered part of the U.S and accept US Medicare.

As Medicare offers limited coverage for travel outside the US, It is advisable to buy adequate international travel health insurance to get proper medical coverage while outside the US borders. All of the popular international travel destinations for US citizens like Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean islands, Latin and South American nations, Europe, Australia and Asia are not covered by regular Medicare coverage.
