10 Things Medicare Doesn’t Cover: Overseas Travel

Photo of Leigh Battle with the Eiffel Tower in Paris, FranceWhile Medicare offers great coverage for its eligible beneficiaries, there are 10 things it doesn’t cover.

Understanding more about these things can help you explore alternative options for comprehensive healthcare access.

Medicare’s coverage for healthcare services outside the United States is limited, except for emergencies near the U.S. border or on certain cruise ships. Routine healthcare services obtained overseas are generally not covered by Original Medicare.

Before I left the United States for my recent adventure to Europe, I purchased a policy from Nationwide through the tour company (mine was Ritz Tours) to cover me in the event of an emergency while I was outside of our country. It offered a variety of coverages that gave me peace of mind, including a $50,000 maximum benefit for emergency evacuation.

(I’m not affiliated with them in any way, I just wanted to share what I found as a solution for my trip with you.)

I am publishing a series of blog posts explaining more about the 10 areas Medicare doesn’t cover, and will also be sharing some videos. You can read more about overseas travel here!
