After you retire, you may have more time to enjoy traveling.  An important thing to consider if you plan to hit the road, whether by boat, train, airplane, bus, or car or is whether or not you can access medical care while you travel and how to do it.

With Original Medicare plans, the answer is YES! You can travel anywhere in all fifty US States and US territories and get medical care and attention from almost any doctor or hospital. You will get the same network benefits that you receive at home from out of network providers.  Medicare is a Federal program and providers are required to adhere to the provisions of the Medicare program.

If you are a Medicare Advantage subscriber (Medicare private health plan), it may be different.

The fees may vary. Your plan might only cover Emergency or Urgent Care needs.  Sometimes the plan allows you to receive care outside of your area but you will often pay more for the care. You may also need to obtain a prior authorization (with the exception of Emergencies and Urgent Care).

If you have a Cost plan, available in some states, you will likely have a travel network that treats you as if you are in network most of the time.  If you do find a provider out of the network your benefits are generally limited to the original Medicare A and B benefits and will typically require higher cost sharing than when you are in network.

Be sure to contact your plan to find out what costs apply while you travel! As always, we are here to help if you have any questions!
