We took out a short term policy thru a company in Michigan. Cost us $700 for
the two of us for 6 months.  Damn good thing we got it, as I broke my ankle
and those bills were around $14,000.  You could renew it one more time for 6
months, which I did, and just before it expired, my gallbladder blew up on
me - that bill - about $15-16,000.
Needless to say, if you want to use this particular company, don't tell them
that I sent you!  If you want particulars, e-mail me.
