You can consult a specialist, get prescriptions, if necessary stay in hospital, have a doctor visit you at your homestay and have all necessary check ups. Now most hospitals offer medical help with a charge. You will have to pay all the bills at the time of treatment and then take receipts to your insurance company who should pay you back.
