I will be finishing my job in the USA at the end of the month. As I understand it, my employer-provided medical insurance lasts until the end of the month in which I finish work, which in this case will be the same day.
I will not be leaving the US for a further 12 days. I would like to have at least emergency medical cover for that period.
When moving here from the UK, I solved the opposite problem with "one way travel insurance". That started from the time I left the UK, and lasted for up to a month after my arrival. However, I'm not aware of anybody offering travel insurance that begins departure.
The hassle, and the cost, of taking out full-scale US health insurance for two weeks of emergency cover would be absurd. Do I have any other options?
I understand that COBRA is a thing that might be relevant, but I don't understand how it works.
