It looks like there's a proposal to make Medicare portable to Philippines. http://www.asianjournal.com/fil-am-news/3-filamnews/13028-us-medicare-portability-to-ph-targeted-for-december-2012.html

Health care in Philippines is very cheap. It's cheaper to pay cash at St. Luke's than the health insurance premium that you'll pay to get US insurance over here even if it's portable.
