Do any credit cards cover medical insurance? or is it recommended to purchase travel insurance before traveling to EY?

I use harel. You can purchase it through egert and Cohens website. I've found it to be pretty good in yerushalayim. Wolfson Drs take it and the pharmacy upstairs does as well. You can Google egert and Cohen and the forms are on their website. Good luck

How much do they charge?
If located in NY I know somebody that sells policies for up to a year with $50k of medical coverage starting at $35

Probably around 1.75 to2 bucks a day.  With that policy do you have to lay out the money and they reimburse? Harels has pretty good coverage for a tourist. I use it all the time.

Yes you lay out the $ and the company reimburses you, it's pretty easy to get refunded

Allianz is great for short/long trips. IINM, Harel only covers medical, and not theft, baggage delay, flight cancelation, roadside assistance, etc.
