Depending on your point of view, health cover is the biggest headache for long term digital nomads, or you can bury your head in the sand and prey you don’t become ill.
The issue is that normal travel insurance doesn’t work, because usually you will have to be six months resident in your country before you leave, that’s great if you it’s your first time out, bit not so for the long term nomad!
Traditional Travel Insurance is not suitable for digital nomads or long term travellers.
Expat health insurance would be another option, but some tie you into one country, and they are mostly very expensive, aimed squarely at the rich Expat on a corporate package.
So where does that leave the digital nomad who is getting by on $1000 a month?
WorldNomads.com, at this point in time (April 2016), are the only Worldwide provider who will extend your travel insurance while you are overseas, and therefore get round the six months residency rule.
