    Trying to figure this out. I work for a US company that has a London Branch. Turns out it's pretty darn hard to get a work visa in London (have to be special skills which means making over 120k pounds a year). So I was considering since my position is remote I can travel in London while working. My concern is what happens with my US health insurance, since I will be still paid in USD and paying to my health insurance.

    Just figured I'd try asking here..

    Mine was included as part of my work contract. If your company doesn't provide it you can check the coverage on your current plan. A lot give some coverage abroad for emergencies and such. If not, then you might have to look in to signing up for a travel/expat plan.
