Traveling with Medicare
Original Medicare – it this is your primary insurance, you will have coverage anywhere in the U.S.
Medicare Advantage – these plans are required to pay for emergency care anywhere in the U.S. Typically, PPO plans provide greater flexibility when traveling, however check with your plan to see what rules and costs apply.
Neither Medicare nor Medicare Advantage provide coverage for traveling outside of the U.S. Certain Medicare Supplement policies will cover 80% of emergency care abroad.
