Does Medicare Cover International Travel

There are so many things to consider when the time comes to enroll in Medicare, and one of the items often left to the wayside is your travel future. Yes! Your future travel plans should be one of the things to consider, especially since it can impact your Medicare decisions.

Although Medicare itself doesn’t cover healthcare during international travel, some plans like Medicare Advantage (Part C) can cover certain emergencies if they occur outside the United States. In most cases, you’ll need supplemental travel insurance — and we can help you with that!

If you plan to travel out of the country, we can help you explore all of the options to make sure we fill any gaps in your coverage. We’ll explain all the available options to you (like Medigap, short term traveler’s insurance, or long-term coverage through Medicare Advantage, for example).

The takeaway? If you’re planning on traveling on a frequent basis, you may want to pay more up front for a Medicare Advantage or Medigap plan to cover costs away from your home state or out of the country. Don’t stress — we’re here to help! Give us a call today and our award-winning agents are ready and waiting to find you the right coverage!
