(Guardian)   Pandemic coverage on your travel health insurance? Uh-huh. I see. That certainly makes sense. You can't have it. But I can let you have a pizza oven. Just use the standard S stroke 1798 and write in "Pizza" where it says "Aspirin"   (theguardian.com) divider line

no shiate sherlock for many generic policies. it is like going on a week long vacation and filling out the form saying you will leave your house for the airport on the 1st and will return on the 9th. you get sick/injured on the 3rd regardless of what country you are in. on the 10th the insurance company says no more coverage for you.  so many people think haha the accident happened while the policy was valid so you have to cover me until i'm better.

You see, you unfortunately plumped for our 'Neverpay' policy, which, you know, if you never claim is very worthwhile, but you had to claim, and, well, there it is.

How's the nude lady, then?

reminds me of those "protection plans" auto dealers try to sell you with the car by some weaseldick third party company.  which will gladly explain to you how your claim isn't covered for whatever reason.

don't ever buy those

That's the risk you take when you visit third world countries.

Gajdoš purchased a travel insurance plan that covered up to $300,000 in medical expenses.

He must not have known America well to think that that would be enough to cover a medical emergency.

Depends on the emergency. That'll almost cover two band-aids, a dot of Neosporin, and a cotton swab.

As an American living in Czech, I can sympathize with the guy. We always buy travel insurance when flying back (where we might forget to if staying within the EU) and someone joked, but yeah, I set the coverage limit stupidity high. But like all insurance companies, they can always tell us to eat sand.

Fun fact, there's usually two options on the quick purchase mobile site - USA or the rest of the World. With different rates, of course

Most travel insurance covered illnesses prior to the H1N1 flu pandemic.

according to the policy, the application of the cotton swap, is an elective procedure, and will require an additional $3,000 deductible.
