Travel Insurance to Portugal from Washington

I tried to set up coverage through AIG/TravelGuard this morning. Unfortunately, after requesting a quote I received a message that they do not offer coverage from my state of origin, Washington. Has anybody else encountered this issue? We are scheduled to leave next May and return in June (2022). I want to set this up during the 15 days following our deposit. I have never had this issue when setting up other coverage for trips to Italy, Ireland and Mexico. What gives????

It has been my fairly well traveled experience that not all insurance companies will insure residents of Washington State. I can't remember why, but it is a thing. Just pick a different company. I have used Insuremytrip and just bought a policy from Berkshire Hathaway.
