Worldwide Insurance

For those of you on extended trips and NOT still dependents, what are you using for health insurance?

My research showed these guys had a good reputation: http://www.worldnomads.com

They were the only recommended place I found that let me get insurance whilst already traveling.

medjet only flies you back if you get sick?

I didn't realize they had insurance too.

Actually only the initial policy has a 6 month max but you can extend as many times as you want as long as you do not let it expire.

For the last 2 years I have used 1 Cover policy I believe it is from Alliance in Australia ,no problems they contact me a month before its due to remind me to renew,also they cover till age 75 which is a bonus for grey nomads.

Have you checked insuremytrip.com? We've liked them for comparing different companies and policies.
