International Health Plans

Elderly couple in London

Are you planning a trip abroad or are you planning to live or work outside the U.S.?  There are a lot of good reasons to consider an international health plan.

Why do I need an international health plan?

When traveling outside of the U.S., not all medical insurance covers you. And if you are living or working abroad, you'll want to ensure that you have the same access and quality health care that you are used to. You also want to ensure that you have the right protection, including coverage for services that your domestic medical plan may not cover, such as medical evacuation and repatriation. And you'll want expert support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days of the year, no matter what time zone you're in.

Why choose GeoBlue?

The name you trust for health insurance at home is the name you can trust for health insurance abroad. GeoBlue is part of the BlueCross family, but you don't need to be a BlueCross member to enroll in a GeoBlue health plan. As your healthcare advocate, GeoBlue will help you navigate unfamiliar healthcare systems around the world to make sure you get the care you need. For certain plans, you can even enroll up to the day before you travel.

  • Coverage for up to age 95 and $1 million in claims
  • Coverage for medically necessary COVID testing and treatment*
