Can Medicare be used in Canada, Mexico or other international countries?

Original Medicare provides coverage in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa and the Northern Mariana Islands. However, in most situations Original Medicare will not pay for healthcare outside the United States. Some Medicare Supplement (Medigap) plans include emergency foreign travel coverage if you are outside of the country (up to plan limits). Some Medicare Advantage plans may also cover emergency care abroad. Contact your plan for more information about its coverage rules.
