The insurance is to cover costs at least EUR 30 000 and be valid in all Schengen countries and throughout your stay.

When applying, you must be able to provide proof that you have medical travel insurance. You should also take your insurance certificate with you during the trip since you may need to show it, e.g. at an entry checkpoint.
