Save Medicare from the heartless--and extend it to senior retirees abroad.
Extend Medicare coverage to seniors wherever they live. It will save Medicare millions because medical care abroad is much less expensive than in the US. And with its coverage, chest pains won’t make senior expatriates choose: (1) immediate treatment causing bankruptcy or (2) passive suicide.
Why is this important?
Medicare does not cover millions of qualified seniors because they live outside the US---even though care would cost less. (Excellent health care in Mexico, for example, costs about 50% less.) So when chest pains strike, there are only two choices for many retired expatriates: (1) immediate treatment causing bankruptcy or (2) passive suicide.
than forcing them to return to the US for treatment.
