Health Insurance (cruising)

Hi guys. I'm sure this question has been asked and debated a lot in the forums but since it's a question that has answers that vary with time/political climate I'd like to re-ask it.

QN: What is the most effective way of covering health insurance when cruising. I currently live in the USA and have dual citizenship (USA and Europe). I'd like to embark on cruising the West Coast USA and down/beyond and do a live-aboard. Moving through different countries means that I'll probably need some form of health insurance. BTW I'm in my late 40's so medicare doesn't come into the equation.

Have you guys found a good way of getting cheap coverage that covers the necessary whilst in and out of USA waters. I currently don't need any prescriptions and am in general good health.

My potential plan: Sail down the CA coast to Mexico and beyond and possibly up through the Panama Canal to the Carribean. A lofty journey to be sure but that's another discussion !!
