Coverage Outside US?

Medicare won’t pay for health care or supplies you get outside the United States (U.S.). 

The term “outside the U.S.” means anywhere other than the 50 states of the U.S., the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Northern Mariana Islands. 
If you plan travel outside the US, including cruise ships, make alternate plans because Medicare will not.
