Some policies cover you and some don't. Some that do may require you to pay for a doctor or hospital visit and then submit a claim to get reimbursed. Check your policy wording.

Obtaining medical treatment and hospital care abroad can be expensive, and medical evacuation to the U.S. can easily cost more than $50,000. If your insurance policy does not cover you abroad, it is a good idea to consider purchasing an Individual Policy which does.
