health insurance kayaking in other countries?
I've been shopping for health insurance for while I am unemployed (soon to be post-student and pre-job). I'm hoping this unemployed period will last long enough for a long kayaking trip (most likely central or south america but maybe other places). I noticed that many health insurance companies have no or poor coverage abroad. Then I looked at health insurance for "international travel" and, well, at least the one I looked at specifically excluded coverage while kayaking (along with a bunch of other sports).
Just curious what you have done for such trips, especially those of you who have gone for a long time. How much did special coverage cost if you did get it? Anyone have any good foreign hospital stories?
