Short-term/Temp accident or travel insurance

My employer put in an application for National Health Insurance for me nearly a month ago, but, the Taiwan government being as it is, it still has not been approved or finalized. I will be taking an eight-day trip to Thailand for Chinese New Year, and I would feel a bit more at peace if I had some kind of insurance.

Does anyone know how and from whom I can get short-term travel/accident insurance? I have an inkling that the travel arm of the American Express company offers some kind of insurance, but I don’t have an AE account. Anything comparable?
