My mother is currently in the hospital and I need to have 6 months medical coverage for her in Florida. Starting from September 17, 2016 - March 17, 2017. Are you are to insure her at the age of 76. Also she is visiting from Jamaica.

Unfortunately, there is no coverage available for things that have already happened. Things that have already happened are considered pre-existing conditions. pre-existing conditions are not covered under any type of travel medical insurance due to the short-term nature of the plans.
The only thing that is covered in relation to a pre-existing condition is something diagnosed as an acute onset of a pre-existing condition. An acute onset of a pre-existing condition is a sudden and unexpected recurrence of a pre-existing condition and is up to the doctor's diagnosis.
Customarily, travel medical insurance covers anything new that happens, emergency and non-emergency both; like a new illness, sickness, or injury that happens after the policy starts. There are many policies that also cover an acute onset of a pre-existing condition.
For your mother in her 70's, the best policy that also covers an acute onset of a pre-existing condition is Safe Travels USA Comprehensive.
