U.S. Healthcare & Overseas Challenges
The excitement of living or traveling abroad needs to be balanced with the reality of health care requirements. Because of how the U.S. health care system works, U.S. citizens and residents traveling for extended periods or living permanently abroad face unique challenges. For example, if you are of Medicare-qualifying age, you are expected to keep Part B of Medicare and Part D of drug coverage, or face penalties for late enrollees. Or if you are not yet eligible for Medicare, the Affordable Care Act (aka “Obamacare”) may require you to maintain minimum essential coverage or pay income penalties for not complying.
These are just a few of the many insurance-related challenges travelers and expatriates might face, but we can help you navigate the system to find the best plans for your unique situation.
