Need clarification on Portuguese insurance for getting the VISA

So I listened to Gilda’s presentation today and heard her say Portuguese health insurance is required to apply foe the D7 VISA. 

I was surprised as I had it from a current PT insurgents agent that repatriation + a PT address ( along with other things that I already have) are required for the VISA purposes and regular PT insurance does not cover repatriation and as an American still living in PT without a second home in PT that I would have to get Travel insurance for the VISA requirements. 

so just to be sure, is Gilda really saying I don’t need repatriation policy or a Portuguese address? 

and if so which companies are offering this?  Thx

My understanding is that you do need PT health insurance and repatriation. But the repatriation will be insurance issued in the US because that is where you would need to be repatriated to with the D7. So 2 different policies

Google travel insurance and you will find many companies in the US with repatriation. Millennium Bank offers a PT health policy but personally would recommend speaking with a broker in PT to get the best policy for your situation. Travel insurance and Portuguese health insurance are not related to the address you need for a D7 visa. You need them all
