The Medex ( http://www.medexassist.com/ ) "Take Me Home - Short Term" policy, available through www.InsureMyTrip.com, is a good deal if you are looking strictly for Medical Evacuation. Motorcycle travel is covered, and they have a comprehensive emergency assistance program.
If your health insurance provider is Highmark, you do have global coverage through their Bluecard Worldwide program. For outpatient or physician services, you will need to pay at time of service and file for reimbursement. For inpatient care at a non-participating hospital, they will attempt to arrange for direct payment to the hospital on your behalf.
