Your insurance policy should cover at least
Medical and health cover for injury or sudden illness
24 hour emergency service and assistance.
Personal liability in case you’re sued for causing injury or damaging property.
Lost and stolen of possessions.
Cancellation and curtailment (cutting short your trip due to illness, injury or unforseen circumstances.).
Personal accident.
You may require extra cover for adventure activities such as rock climbing, motorbike riding, water sports etc. Remember that emergency evacuation is expensive here; bills of over US$100, 000 are not uncommon
You should find out in advance if your insurance plan will make payments directly to providers or if they reimburse you later.
Here, except you come to International health care service or those who can make deal with Insurance companies (not always available) you are likely have to pay in cash and get reimbursement later. If you have to claim later, make sure you keep all documentation.
Some policies ask you to call back (reverse charges) to a centre in your home country where an immediate assessment of your problem is made.

In case of lost or stolen, you have to report to police for investigation and get paper from them.
