For Boomers planning on traveling or retiring outside the US, this is a great article from Kiplinger. It gives some important details on what we can, and more importantly can’t, expect from Medicare or your private carrier¬†and if you’re on Medicare,¬†how to use what you can while avoiding some of the pitfalls and penalties from the Social Security Administration.

The author, Laura Cohn, also provides some additional tips on what you need to do to ensure you are covered sufficiently and also several links to other resources for services should you need them while outside of the US.

If you are planning a trip outside the country, start lining up your health insurance early to make sure you are covered for any type of medical situation before you leave. Bon Voyage!
