Need help in health insurance gap in coverage
I am leaving Switzerland on 15.12.15 and I deregistered for that date. I then discovered that my current health care provider, Assura, will not allow me to continue my coverage for any length of time post my deregistrstion date (15.12.15). I , currently, am only able to acquire a new health care policy in the states starting on 1.1.16. This will leave a gap of over 2 weeks without health care coverage.
I am asking for options , suggestions, anything that might help me figure out a way to resolve this lapse in coverage.
Thus far I have thought of these options:
1 - try to have the deregistrstion date changed until 1.1.16
2- travel insurance as technically I will be traveling but I will not have an active health care provider. I do not know of any such availability and would love to hear referrals, etc
Thank you and I appreciate any ideas, suggestions, etc
