I would ask the insurance companies for the most accurate answer.

However, I would also be concerned about licensing issues, especially since you will be working in Mexico though you are fielding calls from the U.S--you may or may not need to be licensed in Mexico to do this. So you may want to contact the appropriate boards of nursing, and if necessary, chat with a lawyer about the legalities of what you plan to do.

You may also want to check with the U.S. and/or Mexican government to see if work visas, permits, etc. are required.

Best of luck whatever you decide!
