Medical Insurance While Crewing

Hi Friends,
I wil be joining a crew in Europe for 6 weeks late this summer,
American with state side medical insurance and will be purchasing an
international plan for when abroad, anybody have any experience good
or bad with the following companies:

International Medical Group
Travel Insured
Frontier Medex
Geo Blue

All about the same cost, so that's not an issue
just want to be sure they do what they say
and don't give you the bums rush if you need them

Thanx

Just google for a Schengen insurance, can normally be bought online.
These are the insurances necessary within the whole of the Schengen countries, hence most of Europe

No mandatory requirement for insurance for tourists in the EU.

So it's purely for your own convenience
