If you’re going out of the country and have Medicare coverage of any kind, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) advises you to check before you go what (if any) coverage you have while you’re traveling.
If you’re approaching your Medicare initial enrollment period and planning travel out of the country on a regular basis, take that into consideration when choosing the Medicare coverage you want. Look for plans that give you the flexibility you need.
Finally, if you don’t feel you have the coverage you need for a trip, find a travel insurance product that includes health insurance to provide that temporary health coverage.
