No. You have to purchase the insurance before you have a claim.

Can you purchase insurance after your house is already on fire or your boat is sinking?? Of course not, that's not insurance...that's just trying to get someone else to pay your bills.
Insurance needs the possibility of something happening; there is no possibility here, it already happened.

It wouldn't void the policy, there wouldn't be any policy. With any policy you do buy, coverage isn't retroactive. say you buy a policy and then submit a claim. They look at the supporting documentation and see that you went into the hospital before you bought the policy. Denied. If you falsify the supporting documentation, not only denied but jail.

That's not how insurance works. If you only bought insurance when you needed to claim on it, zero insurance companies would be in business.
With travel insurance, you often have to buy it before you leave. Even if you can buy it while abroad, you would have to do so before hospitalization, simple as that.
