Outside California and International

When you’re working or traveling outside of California, you’re covered through the BlueCard® Program (within the U.S.) and Blue Cross Blue Shield Global Core (outside the U.S.).

Outside of CA (in the U.S.)

The BlueCard Program gives you access to care across the United States. BlueCard includes 92% of U.S. doctors and 96% of U.S. hospitals. You are not required to use a BlueCard provider; however, you’ll pay less when you do because services received from BlueCard providers are reimbursed at the in-network level of coverage.

How It Works

  • You must first meet your plan’s deductible. Then the plan pays the same percentage of the cost for covered services as if you were at home.
  • There is no charge for preventive care.
  • You can see most types of in-network providers without a referral. However, some specialists—as well as certain treatments and procedures—may require a referral or prior authorization before your first visit. Learn more.

If you seek out-of-network care, you’ll need to submit a claim, and you’ll pay a higher deductible and a greater share of the costs.

With BlueCard, you can:

  • Access care across the U.S.
  • Go to most types of providers without a referral.
  • Use a BlueCard provider to keep your costs down (but doing so is not required).

To find a BlueCard provider, call 800-810-BLUE or go to anthem.com/ca and select Find a Doctor. For complete information on covered services, see the 2018 UC Care Benefit Booklet.

Outside the U.S.

When you live or travel abroad, you have access to providers—for emergency care—through Blue Cross Blue Shield Global Core. Blue Cross Blue Shield Global Core provides access to health care providers in over 200 countries and territories.

After the deductible, you pay 20% of the cost of covered urgent and emergency services.

For more information, see the Global Core program brochure, go to the Blue Cross Blue Shield Global Core website (the three-letter prefix is QUC) or call Blue Cross Blue Shield Global Core at (800) 810-BLUE (810-2583).

Travel Tips

Before You Go

  • Know what services are covered. Consult the 2018 UC Care Benefit Booklet.
  • If you take a regular prescription, ask for an extended supply so you don’t run out while traveling. Call Anthem Health Guide toll-free, at (844) 437-0486, Monday through Friday, 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. (Pacific). Pharmacy representatives are available 24/7.
  • Bring your Anthem Blue Cross member ID card.

In the U.S.

  • Know the location of the doctor or hospital nearest to your destination(s). Search anthem.com/ca for BlueCard providers near your travel destination(s).

Outside the U.S.

  • Search for providers near your destination(s) through Blue Cross Blue Shield Global Core.
  • Get vaccinated. Check with your doctor about recommended vaccinations. The medical plan covers many travel vaccines. Learn more.
  • Travel smart with prescriptions. Keep medications in their original, clearly labeled containers. Check with the foreign embassy of the country (or countries) you are visiting to be sure that your medications are legal in that country.
  • Set aside extra cash or carry a credit card with access to cash in case you get sick or injured and have to pay for services at the time you receive them. While you are overseas, be prepared to make payment at the time of service and make sure you get an itemized record so you can submit a claim for reimbursement when you return.
  • Traveling on UC business? You may be eligible for UC travel insurance and security protection.

How to Submit a Claim for Services Received When Traveling

Before leaving the provider, get copies of your medical records in English (required for your claim). If your provider can’t provide documentation in English, there are several online translation services that you can use, including Freetranslation.com and Google Translate. Universities, consulates and embassies also offer translation assistance.

Then, follow these steps to submit a claim for reimbursement:

  • Download the International Medical Claim Form. On the form, be sure to include:
    • Your diagnosis
    • The description of service(s), provider name, and address and country where services were rendered
    • Itemized charges and proof of payment, such as a credit card receipt
    • Billed amounts in foreign currency or U.S. dollars
  • Attach all medical reports in English, including, but not limited to:
    • Ambulance trip
    • Emergency room
    • Admitting history
    • Surgical procedure
  • Attach an itemization of ALL charges if you had an inpatient stay in the hospital.
  • Submit the form and required documentation to the address indicated on the form.

For more information, see the international brochure.
