Short-term health insurance for someone with unclear national residence

I'm in the middle of a 2-week period during which it is not clear to me in which country I am a resident for the purposes of buying travel medical insurance. I'll be traveling to the US for the last 3 days of that period and will need medical insurance. This seems to require residency in the country from which one is traveling. I'm a 27-year-old person with no known serious medical condition, so I just want something that will cover emergencies. Please hope me. [more inside]

Oh my god, please help me figure out temporary health insurance.

I need temporary catastrophic health insurance for a month and a half, with a major complication: I'll be living in four different states (NY, PA, CA, and IL) in that time, so the state-specific Exchange options won't work. I just want to make sure I don't go bankrupt if I get hit by a bus on one or the other ends of the country! [more inside]

Next steps after mugging and unwelcome kiss?

So I was just more or less forcibly kissed by a street thief. Not sure if I was just assaulted, or the hapless victim of a charming rogue.

Is travel insurance necessary?

My wife and I are taking a month-long trip from the U.S. to France and Italy later this year. Do we need travel insurance? If so, how much and what kind? Where do we find it? We have medical insurance that applies abroad, so we're mainly worried about cancellation insurance in case some sort of disaster strikes before the trip. Is it possible to buy travel insurance without medical insurance? We've never done anything like this before, and have no clue about "best practices". What can you tell us?
