Hi and welcome to our site!

Your husband may apply for Medicare based on his age

and possible for Medicaid - depending on your income and assets.
However Medicare coverage only provided within the US - and will not cover medical expenses provided abroad.

I feel your company have scammed me! I thought I was paying $5 for one answer and find an account in my email billing me for 215 shekels per month. What are you people doing? Please cancel immediately or I will have to report you to consumer affairs.
thank you Jacqui Taub
