My wife and I and two daughters will be moving from US to UK in August, under a Tier 2 General visa. I understand we will be covered by NHS at that point. But what happens when we travel outside of the UK? For example, coming back home to visit family in the US, or vacations in EU? Does the NHS provide any health coverage when you're outside the UK? If not, does anyone have recommendations on an appropriate private insurance policy? (I work now for the University of Illinois and can probably get a COBRA for a short extension of my state-based medical insurance, but it's also limited in the support it offers for coverage outside of Illinois).
