May this note find you in good health with your Medicare Insurance working properly. Today, I will discuss what you need to know about Medicare and travel. But first …
Here in Chang Mai, Thailand, no one has accused Quantz of being a “Momster,” yet, but this crocodile statue in front of the temple took a special liking to my wife!
For those of you who have been reading this Medicare newsletter for a while, you already know that Q is much more adventurous than me when we travel.
I tend hang back and observe before jumping into a new activity. That’s just the way I’m wired.
This sense of caution aligns with my mission to help clients avoid irreversible health insurance issues.
While chatting with a client in Ohio this week, I received the following question:
How will my Medicare coverage work when I travel away from home in the US or overseas?
The answer is… it depends.
Regardless of the type of plan you have, emergency care is typically covered as in network anywhere in the United States.
Emergency care is often covered overseas, if you haven’t been out of the US for more than 60 consecutive days.
If you are travelling outside the US, sometimes it makes sense to purchase additional travel insurance that may include medical evacuation, just in case.
The bottom line: every situation is different, so if you have travel coming up, feel free to shoot me an email or just book a time on my calendar.
Please remember the reason for this newsletter is to make sure your Medicare coverage is working the way you expect it to be working.
If you are having problems or just have questions, email my admin Gray, Gray@thebig65.com, or just book a time on my calendar.
Let me know what’s going on your life and remember, referrals are the lifeblood of my business!

As a novice to navigating the Medicare system, I cannot recommend the services of Karl enough. His knowledge has saved my wife and I a lot of money, both on the Medicare supplement insurance and the drug coverage. Costs you nothing to listen and has saved up thousands of dollars over time.
