Medicare and Foreign Travel

On Facebook, Medicare Answers From Connie asked: Parasailing in Cancun, Mexico ~ Seemed like a good idea at the time! A day in the hospital and you’re good as new. WHAT PART PAYS?

Medicare Part A - 1 person picked this one
Medicare Part B - 1 person picked this one
Do They Take American Express??? - 1 person picked this one.

Do they take American Express???, I'm afraid you're on your own with this one. Medicare does not pay for treatment outside of the US. BUT..., If you had a Medicare Supplement, it would pick up all but the first $250 of up to $50,000 in charges. Did you know that there is low cost travel insurance available also? Thanks for participating!
