TRAVEL with pat and lew

international health insurance

Posted by Lew Weinstein on February 22, 2007

Medicare does not provide coverage outside the United States. The Medicare Supplement plan I purchased from AARP does provide emergency coverage for the first 60 days of your trip, but that’s not enough if you’re going abroad for five months.

The internet leads me to several choices. We settle on a policy with HTH Travel Insurance where Pat and I each have $1 million in coverage, including coverage for pre-existing conditions. We must maintain an underlying major medical policy in the U.S. There is no medical examination. The cost for both of us combined is about $10.00 per day.
