What is sub limit in travel insurance?
Insurance sublimits are extra limitations in an insurance policy's coverage of certain losses, primarily Sickness Medical expenses. They are part of the original limit, that is, they do not provide extra coverage, but set a maximum limit to cover a specific loss or for a specific medical expense. Sublimits can be expressed as a dollar amount or as a percentage of the coverage available. Typically they are part of the policy for insureds with advancing age.
For example, in a travel policy which has an Accident & Sickness Expense coverage of $100,000, it might have a sublimit of $10,000 to cover Surgery Expenses. This means that only $10,000 of the total coverage can go toward paying for Surgery Expenses. The insured cannot receive an insurance payout of an amount exceeding the sublimit for the types of loss specified.
