The IRS recommended getting an extension to file, paying what you think you owe (if any) with that form, due April 15.

No, it does not need to match. I have a UK EHIC card (bound to my insurance as a UK resident) and have a passport of another EU state, that is totally fine and worked well so far. As you can see in the terms of how to apply, you can apply for an EHIC card as a national of the UK, EEA and Switzerland. All what counts is your proof of residency. (That ...

The best I can recommend to you is to become a member of the German Alpine Club (Deutscher Alpenverein, DAV) or the Austrian Alpine Club (├ľAV, all links in German).

The purpose of travel insurance is evacuation insurance. If you get hit by a truck in Chad or Phnom Penh, you don't want to be treated locally -- and you don't want to pay the $50,000 or $100,000 out of pocket it would cost to get an air-ambulance to a First World hospital. But if you get hit by a truck in Boston -- a reasonable possibility, Bostonians are ...

Travel insurance seems to be a European thing. Most Americans don't buy it at all other than for specific situations like elderly people who have health issues that might flare up.
