Health Insurance

Health Insurance

Ed G. is having a boat custom built, and then he and his wife are going to cruise the Pacific Northwest, then head south. He asked "What do you guys do about health insurance?"

From Bernadette: Douglas and I have full health insurance - I through Blue Cross, and Douglas has an extremely reasonably priced policy through Cassin International Insurance (888-724-5427 or CassinIns@map.com), which specializes in insurance underwriting for international travelers who spend at least half the year outside the United States. I was not able to get that insurance due to a pre-existing condition, so I'm stuck with Blue Cross Blue Shield, the premiums for which went up 18 percent in 2003. This is our largest expenditure.

We also have very inexpensive emergency evacuation insurance with DAN (Divers Alert Network at www.diversalertnetwork.org or 800-446-2671.)
