Sometimes international workers can’t get Medicare coverage for various reasons. Sometimes it is because they opted out of Social Security as a young person working overseas, or they married an American and never did sign up for Social Security, or maybe they just want to retire in the USA because of family and friends here. Now at age 65 and no Medicare coverage, what is one to do?
We now have a company that will give year-to-year coverage in the USA for those over 65. It is a major medical plan that will cover your medical needs and can be renewed for years. Also, we have several other international plans that will cover those over 65 for several years in the USA. Finally, we have an international insurance plan, if taken out while you are outside the USA, will cover you for the rest of your life in the USA.
All of these plans should be considered “catastrophic” plans, as they do not have all the bells and whistles of standard plans such as co-pays, preventive care check-ups, and prescription cards. If you are interested in retirement age medical coverage in the USA, please contact us.
