I currently do not have any health insurance and am traveling for the holidays. Can I purchase travel medical insurance?

Yes, you may purchase a travel medical policy to cover you for accidents and illnesses while traveling outside your home country. Be careful if you have any pre-existing conditions however because travel medical policies usualy exclude cover for pre-excluding conditions. You may also wish to consider a comprehensive travel insurance policy which includes benefits like travel delay, baggage loss and baggage delay in addition to emergency medical and medical evacuation. These policies are often just as affordable as a medical only policy and usually have smaller or no deductibles.
