Will Medicare pay for emergency care in other countries?
My husband and I were traveling in Greece when he had a stroke and needed to go to the emergency room. Will Medicare pay for his care?
No. Medicare does not cover emergency services in foreign countries, except for care in Canada and Mexico under very specific circumstances.
