I am thinking of travelling when my lease is up this coming summer. One thing now worrying me is that within the past year I had a major health scare and for the rest of my life now have a "pre-existing" condition. I am not currently requiring treatment other than MRI's and follow up every 3 months (which gets expensive in itself) but have the potential for needing treatment in the future. How is agency-provided health insurance? Is private insurance the better route and will I be able to get a cost effective insurance with my condition, what about COBRA? I have fantastic health insurance right now and am only thinking of travelling for a year or so.
What have you done?
