By paying a lot of money!
Most travel insurers have a maximum age limit, but there are a couple that advertise that they don't have age or existing condition limits. Yeh, right. They just take both arms and half a leg............!
There's a few threads, if you search, with a couple of options, just don't be holding a hot drink!

Nationwide Flexplus account travel insurance does not have an age limit.

I was going to suggest this but it is only 30 days. You can pay extra for 60 or 90 days. Otherwise it is excellent value at £13 per month. Worldwide travel insurance AND Personal (i.e? Any vehicle you drive) UK/EU Breakdown cover. (AA in the UK)

You don't have to, but if you switch your bank account to them at the moment they will give you £200. That more than pays for a years travel insurance.

Not if you have medical issues! Cost us an extra £400+ but still cheaper than standalone insurance; and that's just for 30 days.

Well, that goes for any insurer. All you can do it gets quotes from a number of companies and compare. I have a friend who was struggling to get insurance for under the £1000 mark and I suggested he try Nationwide and it only cost him a hundred or so over the standard price.

I paid about £400 extra for a 90 day extension including medical stuff (pulmonary embolism).

In Europe the GHIC card covers medical treatment, there have been many threads about going without insurance. I have always taken insurance but if it was very expensive I may consider taking the risk myself. The biggest risk is repatriation, a medical repatriation is very expensive but not needed often.
