study abroad question part II

Hello everyone,

As I ready myself for studying off in another land, I have about 5 million or more questions constantly prying at my brain. Luckily for me UWLJ is an active community. Tonight's topic of concern is medical insurance.

I've heard that UW's insurance covers abroad students, but do any of you have UW insurance? Is it any good?
What have people who have studied abroad in the past done about insurance?
Do you get it from an agency in your host country? If so, is it difficult to obtain or relatively easy?

All suggestions welcome.

Thanks!
