Well, BobC has probably gotten more information that he suspected he might with his original post!
Couple of more thoughts.... I have used Lewis & Lewis and San Xavier ( Bob Acosta mentioned by bournemouth above) a couple of times each dating back to 2002. Fortunately I have not had any claims so I can't address what might happen with either should that occur, but I have seen 'testimonials' of good service from both these providers.
BTW, neither of them asked about/required me to have a US policy (which of course I did). I found it very easy to get a quote from either of them on-line. And as I recall their respective 6-month policies were very comparable in cost.
What made me change to Bob Acosta's insurance, aside from the fact that I have a friend who knows Bob and Helen, is that their policy includes coverage at "NO" extra cost, under the Travel Assistance portion of their policy, for Emergency Medical Transportation by SkyMed! For those of you who aren't completely familiar with SkyMed, see: http://www.skymed.com/acosta
I was initially dubious that they could/would include that great service gratis, but I checked it out and sure enough it is/they do.
The addition of that service, and all it entails, gives me peace of mind that if I had to be evacuated back to the US, it would be to my home town (not a border town hospital), my spouse would/could accompany me AND my car/RV would be driven back from Mexico to my home by a professional driver.
