MEDICARE APOLOGY

Post New Topic

I recently posted about Medicare's availability in St. Luke's Hospital in Manila along with acceptance of US supplemental policies.

I WAS DEAD WRONG & APOLOGIZE FOR MY MISTAKE.

The website I was reading was for St. Luke's hospital in Missouri, not Manila. I don't know how that got into my search but it did.

I am personally disappointed as well since the medical care/insurance issue is a big one in my consideration of the RP for retirement.

Again, to Forum readers, my sincere apology for my error.

Tsmslf - Not a problem, for me anyway. At least it got us all thinking, discussing, and researcching. It did bring up the way that Medicare works in USA Territories such as Guam, etc. I would have been VERY Surprised if it worked in the RP, since I KNOW that it says in Medicare documentation - once you leave USASoil it's "Adios, Muchachos". If you return to live in the USA you can get back on it, but at an increased cost. Why the increase is beyond me - is it a punishment to good US Citizens who have paid their taxes all their lives? I am a dyed in the wool United States Fan - a Hard Core American thru and thru - but the way our Gov't operates a lot of the time is flat out back stabbing. Don't expect to ever get much help, if any, if you're in another Country and some major crisis happens. We won't even begin the discussion of Benghazi, or what DC did to the Native-Americans......
