The Elder & Disability Law Firm Founder, Victoria L Collier Offers Senior Travel Tips
Certified Elder Care Attorney, Victoria Collier provides a few important healthcare tips for seniors and retirees traveling during the spectacular fall season though they apply to travel during any season.
Decatur, GA, October 26, 2017: Victoria L. Collier, founder of The Elder & Disability Law Firm, has posted a new blog on her law firm’s website entitled “Senior Travel Tips For Every Season.” Travel is what many retirees look forward to and as Ms. Collier reminds in her latest blog, “Before you hit the road, though, it’s important to have a clear understanding of your healthcare benefits in the event any medical emergencies should arise while you are away from home.”
That advice applies says Collier, “Whether you are in the autumn of your life or not.” She continues adding, “ If you’re heading to the northeast to take in the colorful fall foliage or heading off on a luxurious European river cruise, you’ll want to make sure you are up-to-date on what is covered when you travel domestically and internationally.”
Collier provides a few tidbits about Medicare coverage including the fact that, “original Medicare and Medicare Supplemental (MediGap) Plans are valid and must be accepted across the country by any provider who accepts Medicare insurance.”
“For international travelers,” says Collier, “Medicare Supplemental plans are available to cover medical care required during overseas travel.”
