I never heard that travel insurance was health insurance. If you have chronic conditions and take regular medications, I don't see how it could be the travel insurer's responsibility to cover that for you. When I travel, I always get refills for my meds before. I can get up to 100 day refills at Kaiser. They will not give me a 6 months advance, though. But I have never traveled for longer than that 100 days.

Said meds would cost ~$15k for 6 months without insurance, about the same for my partner's meds, so I doubt very much the travel insurer would cover them.
