This has nothing to do with Visas to other Countries so I'll move this to the Insurance Forum.

You could try travel insurance for the first year +. It is much cheaper but its based on the UK etc being your home but you can travel for years. For 8 months for me its under £150.
Also consider personal accident insurance, max cover I've seen for medical is 200k for 7k premium

my home is Israel, can i use that even the company based in the UK ?
You need to look for travel insurance available from Israel. In the UK i have to opt for "backpacker insurance", i think it has a maximum age so you need to check. Google travel insurance. "Annual travel insurance" only covers a max of 120 days usually so is no use

why does it matter where the company based ?

Ask your wife if she is covered. Yes I'm suggesting one option which is travel insurance, other one is personal accident insurance (in Thailand) or private medical insurance (in Thailand) such as Bupa which is circ 50-100k baht a year.

Others who use private medical insurance can give suggestions

That's the one i choose. Try it and see. It may at some point say you need to be UK resident i don't know.
