Ron......thanks for correcting my incomplete reference above. I meant,
as you pointed out , that the basic Medicare A/B does not cover foreign country emergency care. It was a surprise to me when I found that out.
Even with my retiree plan options, it is not a listed feature on the plan description comparison charts that are sent each yr and you have to dig a bit to find out if it is covered or not.
