Insurance

I am writing this with the hope someone can help, I am British born but have lived in Turkey for the past 26 years my challenge is this to get from Alaska to Argentina without to many mishaps, however if i were to be unlucky enough to require assistance (hospitalization) i would really like insurance that didn't cost me the price of my home, some additional details about myself.
I am a keen cyclist, I have completed two cycling tour's one from Turkey to Cape town and one around Europe, these tour's were not so long in duration of time, 5 and 4 month's respectively, so insurance was not such a big deal. By the way I am the wrong Side of sixty.
Please can anyone help

I don´t know about each

I don´t know about each country and companys products, but I have an accident insurance that covers medical expenses, and in that way it is usually cheap (and being an accident insurance age doen't matter). That kind of product will not cover you from illness, only accidents, but could be a way.
Hope you find something, and when you have it, hope you never use it.
Enjoy your travel,
Mikel

Federations

In Portugal,
The National Cyclist Federation offers a insurance to its members that can be used abroad by cycle tourers.
Don't know if there is a equivalent where you come from.
