Medical Assistance

American Citizens living or traveling abroad should make sure they have adequate medical insurance that will cover expenses incurred abroad.  Medicare and Medicaid are only valid in the United States. Some private American medical insurance companies will pay for expenses abroad, but most require that the patient pay the bill first, then file for reimbursement. Hospitals and health care providers will expect payment if you are not covered by the Maltese public health care system.  We do not have funding to help cover medical expenses of American citizens in Malta.  You may find it useful to look into the possibility of obtaining a policy that specifically covers expenses incurred overseas.
