Medicare can only cover your care within the United States (including Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Marina Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands). The only exception is if you are on the border and a foreign hospital is closer. For example, if you are near the Texas/Mexico border and you are in an accident that is technically closer to a Mexican hospital, Medicare can cover your care at that hospital.
