Fun Fact: Medicare Coverage Excluded If Act of War

 Someone was asking about Medicare exclusions from coverage (eyeglasses: excluded; dental: excluded). 

Another one is exclusion of Medicare payment for medical services required "as a result of war or act of war."

So it seems if we had a continental war here, and there were 2 million Medicare age people injured, they wouldn't have health insurance.   Whether this type of exclusion might be found in commercial plans; I don't know.
