Found out when I applied for Medicare that Medicare, and many supplements, do not cover you for out of the country healthcare. I mention it here because I know many of you are old like me. I was able to get a five day police for around $57.00. Most likely won't need it but I can't imagine how much a Mexican evac and hospotal stay would be. I'm not providing the name of the carrier I chose because this is to inform, not to promote.

So what did you inform us of ? people ask insurance questions all the time and get recommendations.

Pretty simple. Medicare doesn't cover out of country so ask your insurance agent about coverage. The only thing I didn't mention was the name of the carrier I used because its irrelevant.

The last time I purchased trip insurance it included med evac coverage. You might check into that.

Suggested by several Long Range outfits is Dawson and Associates Insurance Agency. I buy a one year travel insurance plan for any and all trips. Flights, fishing trips, cruise. All covered for cancellations with a proper reason, not just “changed my mind” Accident and med-evac insurance covered. Check it out.

Does it include health care, Steve?

Yes, for hospitalization. Check it out, they’re easy to talk to.

If you’re interested, I can track down an email with an attached PDF.

Thanks Steve. That's good information. I buy travel insurance every year...but to me what they charge is too much. I will check with Dawson this year. Tex.
