Medicare abroad

2 Replies



This is a question that would be relevant only to US citizens over 65 and spending much of their time abroad:  does anyone know if it is possible to suspend your Medicare Part B and Medicare Part D premiums when you are out of the US?  The penalties for not enrolling when eligible are prohibitive, and the premium costs are substantial, especially since Medicare covers no expenses incurred outside the US.  My wife and I live in France now, and have coverage in France, but we may return to the US at some time in the future and would then need Medicare coverage.  Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.

Good morning, Have you tried reaching out to the AAWE on this matter - they might be able to clear things up for you:
