So what you are saying is that if I move to the Philippines you can cancel Part B and have them return the $134 to my check each month?

also if I decide to return to the US will there be a penalty for not having Part B for X amount of months? 

And yes putting aside the extra money for future health care needs is a great idea

Under the current rules, Medicare coverage is lifetime for persons 65 years and older. It's 80/20 for hospitalization.  Medicare B is optional to help cover the 20% hospital co-payment and medical visits.  You have to start at age 65 or else there is a penalty if you decided to start coverage later. There is also a penalty if you have Medicare B, decide to withdraw for a while, then return to the system.

Medicare won't cover you while overseas. If your relocation to the Philippines is permanent, why not set aside $134 a month for self-insurance?

I will be living with a Filipina woman who is legally separated.

Apart from the Healthcare, I suggest you look up Threads on relationships too!

Any advice on this

A lot will depend on where you settle. If you are in a large city with private hospitals, such as Asian Hospital in Metro Manila. They have an office that does the coordination with foreign insurance companies. If you are in the province, with public or small hospitals they might only accept Phil health or cash. As with most things YMMV, I would strongly suggest to either do a boots on the ground looksee or do a web seachI know that the hospital I uses (Asian hospital) has a web page that diskribes its insurance programs
