As a stop-gap measure, you could invest in a short-term policy. Written for a two to six month period, they generally cover hospitalization, intensive care, surgical and doctors care in and out of the hospital, X-rays and lab tests. Or, if you belong to any professional organization or group, or a trade union, you may try to get a policy at a low group rate.
