The Solution For Traveling Medicare Recipients

Many people are unaware that the Social Security Medicare/Medicaid Program does not provide coverage for hospital or medical expenses incurred outside the United States.

For travelers who are injured or who become seriously ill overseas, obtaining medical treatment and hospital care can be very costly and difficult. A serious medical expense or a medical evacuation can easily cost $20,000 to $75,000, depending on your location and condition.

Insurance Plans

Before traveling internationally (even to Canada or Mexico), Medicare recipients can purchase one of the following:

bullet InterMedical™ Insurance provides covered medical expense and medical evacuation benefits for those traveling outside the U.S., at low daily rates.

bullet WorldMed™ Insurance: WorldMed is a flexible medical insurance plan for people traveling outside their home country. Available from 15 days to 3 years, it offers 3 levels of accident and sickness coverage up to $1,000,000.
