I like my health insurance, although I'd like it more if it was less expensive. As a US Govt annuitant I have many choices for health insurance for my wife and myself. One I've found easy for overseas claims costs me $369 a month this year. The government pays an additional $1,108. So the total cost is $1,477 a month. The cost increases every year.
Will you plz provide name of the company you are using?
I use FEP Blue Cross/Blue Shield. I use the Basic Plan. https://www.fepblue.org/
Thanks, will look at next open season. Currently using GEHA as 2nd payer to Medicare(which not usable outside U.S.)

I have a Medicare Supplement policy with Massachusetts Blue Cross Blue Shield. The foreign coverage is that if the expense is something that Medicare would cover in the U.S., my BCBS policy will cover it outside the U.S. No copay/deductible, coverage is 100% starting with dollar number one, regardless of where I am. And, amazingly, Bumrungrad is a member hospital of Massachusetts BCBS, although that doesn't change the coverage, -- just an interesting tidbit.

While each BCBS company is an entirely separate entity, I believe that similar coverage is available from insurers in many other states.

My wife and I are covered under the military medical program. If someone were considering moving here without some sort of insurance......or hefty savings set aside specifically for medical coverage, my advice would be......don't come
