TRAVELING restrictions?

Are there any restrictions regarding travel and receiving benefits? I am not referring to access to ones benefits while overseas, but traveling with no fear of having said benefits taken away?

I receive Medicare (Disability, but not SSI) and Medicaid (California; just health insurance, no supplemental income from them) and want to know how long I am able to travel overseas without fearing of losing my benefits. Again - not trying to access them should I become ill overseas.
