Suzy, I think you misheard him on this.
"US/Foreign coverage, all US insurance plans must cover you for 30 days in any foreign country anyway, "
Yeah, that might be possible. Dunno. But if they DO cover you, it will be what is called "out of plan coverage" or "out of network coverage" and that usually means they'll pay next to nothing, or nothing at all. Unless you read your policy and it provides for some reimbursement when you are out of the plan/coverage area, which many don't, assume you will be reimbursed for nothing. In or out of the US.
