How do Insurance Companies & Medicare
handle claims if you are out of the area, out of state or out of country?

Please check the official policies and brochures below or on your insurance companies website (view our companies page, look for the companies administrative page) to see how travel is covered.  In general, it’s emergency or urgent care ONLY.
