Mission - Beyond Borders
My passion is to inform America's traveling population about safe and affordable health care available in Europe and Asia.
There’s plenty to think about when you’re traveling to another country. No need to lose sleep fretting, "Heaven forbid something should happen".
I've been researching the best medical and wellness solutions abroad at medical conventions and hospitals. "Been there. Done that." I'm here to ensure everyone that you will be in good hands and get proper care abroad in the nearby wealthy countries of Malaysia or Thailand when visiting, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos or Myanmar. And well, Turkey's legendary healthcare dates back to the pre-Spanish inquisition. Some of the hospitals I visited in Turkey are 5-star!
During a trip to Wales, when I invited Ann (my 80ish Lady Pal) to visit me in California for Cancer care, she fussed about the high cost of travel insurance. Whereas I and my American friends have ignored travel insurance altogether.
Well, surprise! I'm turning 70 this year and just discovered that most insurers won't even accept clients after the magical age of 70.
However, if you check with your Medicare insurance plan, you might find that you would be covered in foreign hospitals.
According to a doctor at a hospital in Paris, they would accept my insurance and, "Not leave me to die in the street..." but, he said seriously, "It would require a lot of paperwork." I double checked with Scan, who confirmed I'd be covered until I got home..."But the paperwork." Fortunately, everyone takes credit cards, so don't leave home without one ... or two.
