Re: Overseas Health Insurance - Not Obamacare

Well, if you are passagemaking and going through many different jurisdictions, worldwide comprehensive coverage makes sense, but if you're just noodlign slowly around the same area for a while, I would just get local insurance to cover the basic bumps, sprains and broken bones, and basic repatriation insurance for your remains.

Worldwide coverage with a specialist company may be great for an Expatriate in a major city with major hospitals with major financial and billings departments who have worked with those insurance companies before and know they will get paid. Not so much at a small coastal town emergency department unless you have a big wad of cash on hand.

No, even with a small local hospital or clinic you can always file yourself for reimbursement from the insurance company. The hospital doesn't have to do it for you to be covered.
