During your vacation or missionary service, you may need to see a doctor or have a prescription filled or deal with an unexpected medical emergency on land or at sea.
All Medicare policies only cover emergency room care if you are out of the US, and they only pay up to $10,000 dollars.
What this means is that if you’re traveling and need health care or a medical evacuation, then you’re responsible for the cost of everything unless you have a travel health insurance.
