Next year I want to go to Germany on a 12 month WHV for which I need 12 months of medical insurance. However before going to Germany I will be going to the USA for about one month. The problem I am having is that I can't find any insurance company that will provide a policy for the 13 months I will be away. I considered taking out two policies however that can not be achieved as the insurance policies begin upon departing from Australia and I will be departing to Germany from the USA.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

This is one of the advantages of World Nomads - they allow you to renew your policy on the road (or take it out once you've already left). So you could take out one policy for the US part of your trip and then a second one for the Germany part.

I'm not sure if there are other insurance companies with this kind of policy. Probably, but WN is the first one I ever knew to allow this.

Full disclosure; Travellerspoint gets a commission off of that link to them. That doesn't mean my recommendation isn't genuine. I have used them a lot in the past myself and the coverage/price balance was right for me. Do check the coverage and ensure it's enough for you though.
