Health Insurance


Time of past OR future Camino
My first Camino was in September/October of 2009.
Hello All,
I am leaving New York City on the 8th of September, hoping to start my camino around the 10th. My boots are ready, my backpack is ready, and I am ready. Except for one major practicality and that is health insurance which a friend pointed out to me just minutes ago! I have no clue at this point, some of the health insurance websites charge exorbitant rates! Are there any members here stateside who know of an inexpensive health insurance agency?

Thank you for any help you can offer,

I think I was the one who recommended World Nomads a while ago. I used them for my recent Camino and also for another trip before. I´ve never had to make a claim so I can´t comment on that aspect, but their policy is quick and easy to get online and not expensive.
