I'll be in Japan for about
6 weeks. Yep, essentially no coverage while abroad except for emergencies, the definition of which seems very restrictive. Also, I'm participating in a program for part of that which requests we have medical and personal liability coverage.
Fortunately I am doing very well (knock on every piece of wood in sight), will get my Entyvio shortly before leaving, and will leave stocked with prednisone, suppositories, and maybe some antibiotics. Also some stool softeners as constipation was an issue last time I was in Japan! So much rice
