I have been working with traveling and local agencies for almost a year now. I felt confident that I was covered because the local travel agency I was working with said I have health insurance. Everything came to a halt when I started to develop various health problems. Even though I was told that I was covered, I went to see a few specialists and now I owe thousands. I'm starting to believe or think that traveling is not for me. I feel that since I'm single and need to get my own insurance what assurance do I have with travel nursing and these agencies? How do you deal with health insurance as a traveler? Do you have to be healthy to travel?
