Some policies offer lower and higher medical-expense options; the higher ones are chiefly for countries that have high medical costs, such as the United States. The most common risks that are covered by travel insurance plans are: Medical treatment, including transportation to the medical facility. Medical expense coverage can be per-occurrence or maximum-limit.
