Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
Medicare does not provide for repayment of any medical expenses in Europe---regardless of whether they are an emergency or not. Neither do the traditional health policies that you buy in the US.
If you are traveling then you need to purchase a separate short term health policy which will be valid in the countries in which you will be traveling. Otherwise you risk being obligated to pay the entire medical bill yourself if something were to happen. Consider one of the many companies on the internet that sell travel health insurance, such as this one: https://www.hthtravelinsurance.com/
