  1. Another great video Paul…keep uploading great videos and you will soon be at 100k subscribers and you will never need to reach out for 10k dollars from friends or family 😉

  2. I am 71 years old. Gio’s insurance recommendation does not work for me because the cut off is at 70. I would be curious if any of your subscribers know of any insurance for someone my age. Thanks for another great video Paul

  3. Paul I really like your channel . But on this one as far as I’m concerned you have this wrong. If you had a new Maserati would you get collision? You might say no need I can cover any damage. Most of the time insurance is not needed but if you do need it and don’t have it what will you do? Let’s say your bill is $10,000 dollars. You think hospitalization is cheap herein the Philippines? Go to change hua in Cebu and you’ll find out. Follow the unlucky foreigners that got sick and ended up in the hospital? It will be a big burden. But to each his own. Hospitalization in the Philippines is much cheaper then in the west but it’s still not cheap. Yes X-rays are cheap and blood tests but if your in a top hospital here it’s not. Get cancer here and you’ll find out. Just my two cents.

  4. Paul, I’m tryin to catch up on your back catalogue of vlogs! Ya kicking them out quicker than I can keep up 🤪😂🤣😆 love the Channel buddy

  5. Hi Paul,
    Again another fantastic post .
    I had asked you before on your SSA centered vlog if you paid Medicare etc.
    I realise that you’re being bombarded with new subscribers , so I’m not moaning that you didn’t get back to me …
    I’m about a year from the Medicare age and I do not plan to remain in the US, and with the present us government you apparently don’t need to pay for Medicare I.E. you can opt out?
    Just wondered what your take is on this, as this is $150 plus per month that you could save?
    Cheers
    Glenn

  6. I hear that Medicade will cover emergency in the Philippines but you”ll have to return home for health care. Not 100 percent sure about that but only emergency care is covered .

  7. EVERYTIME YOU RIDE A MOTORCYCLE YOU CHEAT DEATH RATHER IT BE IN THE U.S.A. OR THE PHILIPPINES…KEEP YOUR DISTANCE…CHECK YOUR MIRRORS…WEAR A FULL FACE HELMET…DRESS FOR THE SLIDE AS WELL AS THE RIDE…GO SLOW…WATCH OUT FOR THE OTHER GUY…THERE IS ALMOST NO DRIVER EDUCATION HERE IN THE PHILIPPINES…BE SAFE OUT THERE…THANKS PAUL…

  8. I had a buddy have a stroke in Thailand and was kicked out of good hospital as he couldn’t pay(self insured). He couldn’t talk and had no way of getting money from his accounts to pay cash. Was then sent to a shi**y hospital and family and friends harassed for money while getting sub par care in a big dorm room. Had he had an insurance card in his pocket of even an agreement with a friend with access to a CC I believe he would have received much better care. IMO at a minimum you should put a envelope with family contact info and maybe directions to your backup CC in a trusted friends safe for an emergency.

  9. Congratz on the subs, channel says you started in 2012, so lots of hard work paying off now. I have a friend who just turned 65, he got a hold of the government and he basically pays almost nothing with all the assistance programs there are to help pay for his health insurance based on his income on Social Security. 65 seems to be the magic age for government assistance on health insurance.

  10. Besides a recent hernia surgery (which was very expensive and ended up being around triple the amount I expected) a ‘simple’ doctor appointment in the USA with some fairly common tests came in at $600 which was triple the amount I expected.

    I almost did the hernia surgery here in the Philippines which would have cost about $1,000 out of pocket which was approximately what I ended up paying in the United States for my part of the expense of the USA surgery. I am some glad that I did the procedure in the United States, but doing it here would have worked out just fine too.

  11. Interesting Mayor of Dumaguete who has the power to lock people down and decide their fate. Very interesting tragic happenings going on there in Dumaguete. They should vote those kind of Mayor’s out of office who turn into Gestapo who use brutal methods to control the public.

  12. I got a quote about 6 months ago from Cigna, $411. USD a month for health insurance while in the Philippines. A bit out of my price range.

  13. I tested my 750 cc USA motorcycle by taking it up to 100 mph. 100 mph was it’s effective top speed. Kind of miss that. 750 cc is a pretty small cruiser…in the United States. Kind of miss that too.

  14. I checked it out philheath, it was 17,000 pesos a year for me….340 dollars US…my philipino wife who is pregnant her cost is 3600 pesos a year for her that covers her and the baby that’s coming in July…we just purchased it in January this year. That’s about all I know about it.😀 The driving part I am fairly good at back in the states I worked for a huge package delivery company when I left I had 32 years safe driving and that was in Minnesota. I have a motorcycle here but it’s a whole different world driving here.😎

  15. Like you, I’ll go the medicare route when I move there. I’ll add part G, which will add about $100 per month to the $145 Part B fee. So, for $245/month, I’ll have 100% coverage (after I pay the $198 annual deductible). At 68, I’m almost too old for the travel insurance options.
