NO U.S. Medicare will not work here. BUT a retired military person can use TRICARE. Until you reach that magic age or disabled. Then to use TRICARE you MUST have MEDICARE. Does that answer your questionMedicard is a Philippine HMO with a big medical center across the street from makati immigration. Some of our filipino friends have it because their employers provide medicard coverage as a benefit. See medicardphils dot com. They will cover foreigners.
Are you saying that American MEDICARE will reimburse you for expenses here ?
Thats true but you can also use it here. Some hospitals like The Medical City has a section you can call they will make you an appointment to see a doctor. There is a deductible which you must pay first. I and my wife use it all the time. I was admitted to a hospital that is not on the approved list. I submitted my paperwork to TRICARE and was reimbursed, so I know it works hereIf you have both Tricare and Medicare Part B you can go to the US or its Territories(i.e. Guam) for treatment. If you go to Guam Medicare would be the primary payer and Tricare would be the secondary payer, as such there should be no out of pocket expenses for covered procedures.
